MAIR – Chapter 161 – Cooperation

Shen Huai was still working hard trying to find a crew for Pei Ran. Then he learned that Pei Ran had already found two screenwriters and one of them was Yang Yizhou, the best one in the screenwriting world.

Shen Huai: “…”

Shen Huai glanced at the list in his hand and felt it was a little shabby.

Shen Huai rubbed his forehead. His artist was too powerful. Sometimes this was a good kind of trouble.

However, Shen Huai didn’t struggle for long. He crossed a few names on the list, took out his mobile phone and wondered whether he could upgrade the list thanks to the addition of Yang Yizhou.

Ming Wei also learned about it suddenly, but she didn’t show it on her face. After all, President Shen’s artists had shocked her countless times before.

Chu Mei Bo as a newcomer had defeated all of the domestic first-line actresses and won the leading actress role in “Red Actress”. She went against the trend of becoming popular slowly and directly became one of the leaders in the circle. Ming Wei also followed the trend and voted for blessings in her circle of friends for Xia Shiyu. Not to mention Ye Cang, the pillar of Morningstar that even caught President Shen himself. Another one just came and already signed Yang Yizhou as a screenwriter, as if…. It was not unexpected.

Ming Wei was stunned in her heart, but on the surface she was composed while reporting it to Shen Huai.

Since the last press conference, Morningstar had been busy. In addition to their plans with the Music Association, there was also the mess left by Huayue.

Although Huayue was cold, a skinny camel was still bigger than a horse. The singers under Huayue had encountered great changes and there was no way to find a satisfactory new owner for a while. They didn’t know how many times they scolded Morningstar Company secretly and openly.

Huayue’s miserable appearance made many netizens feel compassion and they were brought to the rhythm. In other words, it was not necessary to kill Huayue because of “other people’s envy” and “difficult company management”.

As the one to directly confront Huayue in the first place, Morningstar inevitably encountered the most questioning and criticism.

Shen Huai let them hop. Anyway, they wouldn’t be able to hop in a few more days.

Thinking like this he remembered Xia Shiyu’s case. He was just about to call Mr. Qi to make an appointment for dinner and ask about the progress of the case by the way.

But when Shen Huai took out his mobile phone, it rang.

The word “Uncle” was displayed on the screen.

Shen Huai looked at it a little surprised, but quickly answered the call, saying with a smile, “Uncle, when did you return home?”

The tone was familiar and intimate, which showed that their relationship was very good.

Ming Wei was a bit curious. After all, Shen Huai had been in the company for several years, but she had never met Shen Huai’s relatives or friends. Later, when she learned Shen Huai’s real identity she also followed the melon eating netizens reading the Shen family’s history of getting rich, and sighed with emotion.

But this powerful family was very low-key on the outside, and there was very little news. If it hadn’t been for the hot search about Shen Huai, there would still have been many people who hadn’t even heard of this family.

However, although Ming Wei was curious, she obediently retreated and closed the door for Shen Huai.

But Ming Wei didn’t go back either. Instead, she waited outside in the secretary’s office for Shen Huai to finish his phone call and goinside to talk about other matters.

After a while, the door to Shen Huai’s office opened. He strode out and told his secretary, “Book a place for dinner…”

When he finished giving orders, he saw Ming Wei and proceeded, “Can you say the rest while we walk?”

Ming Wei hurriedly followed until they got to the underground parking lot and finished talking about her work.

When Ming Wei saw that Shen Huai was going to drive, she couldn’t help asking, “Mr. Shen, where are you going?”

Shen Huai did not try to hide it from her. “I’m going to Hongzhen and will probably come back to the company tomorrow. If you have anything else, contact me again.”

Hongzhen was the recording site of “National Idol”. Now that the competition of “National Idol” had entered the heated stage, unlike before the mentors could no longer arrive on the day of recording the program, but directly lived there.

Shen Huai was going to Hongzhen now. Ming Wei wanted to know if it was for Ye Cang. Then she thought of the previous phone call and suddenly covered her mouth.

This was the proper thing to do, to meet the parents!!



Hongzhen was near Zhongjing City. Shen Huai drove off and arrived at the destination in two hours.

There were several large studios on this side of Hongzhen. People who come here for the first time couldn’t find the right place, but Shen Huai was quite familiar with it. He drove directly to a shop in an alley, ordered a piece of fat intestines, and then walked towards the studio of “National Idol”.

Shen Huai had long contacted the program group of “National Idol”. The other side was worried that he would not be able to find the place, so they specially sent an intern to pick him up.

The intern was lively and warmly welcomed him when he saw Shen Huai. After a few words of pleasantries, he said, “Mr. Shen, Mr. Ye lives in the back building. I’ll take you there directly…”

Shen Huai shook his head. “Take me to the contestants’ side.”

The intern was stunned and then reflected that Xia Shiyu, the most popular contestant in “National Idol”, was also Shen Huai’s artist.

He stuck out his tongue, hurriedly led Shen Huai to the reception room and called the director.

In fact, although “National Idol” claimed to be completely closed, it was not so rigid. It was alright to see your own agent and the program team had even set up a special reception room for this purpose.

Xia Shiyu was a bit far away. She was in the recording studio at the moment, so it would take her a long time to come here.

Worried about the silence, the intern spared no effort to find some topic.

When he saw Shen Huai carrying a bag, he couldn’t help saying, “Is this the gift Mr. Shen always brings to Xia Xia?”

Shen Huai hesitated and nodded.

The intern stared at the bag, which was actually a very simple supermarket plastic bag, tied so tightly that it could not be seen what was inside. It only vaguely showed that it was some kind of box-like thing, but the more you looked at it, the more it looked like takeout??

The intern immediately dismissed this ridiculous idea.

This was Mr. Shen, the god of the investment world and one of the heirs of the Shen family. If he gave something to his artist, it should be jewelry, bags of famous brands of all kinds of high-end things.

That bag could not be a simple supermarket plastic bag. The package could be simple, but it was just because the big boss was too low-key. It had to be like this!

The intern quietly praised his own guess.

The door was pushed open, and Xia Shiyu came in quickly. When she saw Shen Huai, she was surprised. “What are you doing here?”

Shen Huai said with a smile, “Running errands. I come to see you by the way.”

Other agents would probably want to live here and keep an eye on their artist all the time to pay attention to their image in front of the camera, but Shen Huai knew that Xia Shiyu didn’t need his guidance at all. She was the best artist on the stage.

He said by the way, so he was really just  dropping-in.

Xia Shiyu didn’t mind either, but then her nose moved. “What is this smell?”

Shen Huai smiled and shook his head. He could not help lamenting Xia Shiyu’s sensitive nose. He pointed to the bag on the table and said, “A gift for you.”

Xia Shiyu muttered, “What is it?” while opening the plastic bag.

The intern on the side stared closely at the movements on her hands, more nervous than Shen Huai’s artist herself.


“Um… Huh?!”

The intern was too surprised to control his volume. Shen Huai and Xia Shiyu turned their heads at the same time.

He waved hurriedly. “No…. It is nothing.”

It never occurred to him that it was really just a supermarket plastic bag! The one over there was really a take out! Of spicy fat intestines!!

The intern, who got his answer, left the reception room in a daze.

Xia Shiyu was also very surprised. After all, in order to control her weight, not to mention the fat intestines, she had not even seen much pork recently. Every day she ate nutritious meals, and her mouth was almost feeling like some bird.

Shen Huai’s present was so agreeable and touching.

However, although Xia Shiyu’s greedy eyes were about to turn green, she still resisted and only ate  a small piece of fat intestines, and then quickly covered up the box.

With an exaggerated expression of happiness on her face, she slowly chewed the rare delicacy in her mouth.

Shen Huai waited for her to finish eating before saying, “I called Mr. Qi to learn about the progress of the case, and currently I’m still collecting evidence. It will take a while, so the court trial will be held next year.”

Shen Huai knew that for those who had come back to life, because they shared the memory of the original body owner they all bore their grievances before their death, so their obsession to clean up their grievances was particularly strong.

Xia Shiyu didn’t expect it to take so long, but after taking a deep breath she said, “It doesn’t matter. I have been waiting for three years, so I don’t care about a few more months.”

After all, it was someone else’s territory. Both of them were very careful not to reveal too much. So they didn’t chat casually about Xia Shiyu’s rebirth.

Shen Huai was about to leave when Xia Shiyu hesitated and asked, “Pei Ran…… How is he?”

Xia Shiyu already knew about Pei Ran’s rebirth, but she was at the recording site and had no way to go back, so she could only inquire about news from Shen Huai.

Shen Huai said, “He is now in the ‘Red Actress’ crew, learning from Director Xie. He plans to make his own movie, and now he is preparing.”

Xia Shiyu also sighed with emotion. “He said before that the most regrettable thing is that he didn’t make a film with z-ipa-i, and now he has got what he always wanted.”

Xia Shiyu touched her chin. “My good friend’s movie still needs support. What do you say about giving me a guest role?”

Shen Huai: “…”

He thought that Pei Ran might not want this kind of support.



Shen Huai chatted with Xia Shiyu for a while before leaving. Originally, he planned to go directly to the mentors’ residence but as soon as he opened the door of the reception room, he saw Ye Cang waiting outside the door.

Ye Cang heard that Shen Huai had come. At the beginning, he thought Qiu Jie was playing a joke on him. But with the mentality that he would rather be prepared than not, he specially went to take care of his hair.

Only, when he looked left and right, but didn’t see Shen Huai. He was just about to find and kill Qiu Jie. It was only then that he heard several staff members say that Shen Huai had gone to the reception room.

He couldn’t wait, so he ran over on his own.

Since the two of them made it public they had only had one sweet afternoon. After that, they were busy. They were both in Zhongjing, but they never had a chance to meet each other, which made Ye Cang very depressed, and he didn’t expect Shen Huai to come to see him.

Ye Cang felt a pink bubble in his heart, but then he saw Shen Huai raise his hand and look at his watch. “I told the director of the program that I would like to lend you for the afternoon and the evening. Now you have an hour to change clothes.”

Ye Cang wondered, “How about we change clothes together?”

Shen Huai looked at him helplessly. “It will not be just the two of us.”

Ye Cang was suddenly depressed. “We seldom have time to be with each other, so why do we have to meet with others …”

Shen Huai interrupted him lightly, “That other person is my uncle.” 

Ye Cang: “?!”
