Chapter 1165: I Won’t Ask How You Spend the Money!
She smiled and set the mineral water aside before walking towards Yun Liuli. She said to Fang Yan, “Xiao Liuli is here… We can talk about the issue of popularity later!”
Fang Yan was rendered speechless.
Could she have run away in a less obvious manner!
Fang Yan saw Lin Nuan walking towards Yun Liuli, so she set down the script in her hands and followed her over…
Seeing that Yun Liuli’s eyes were reddened, Lin Nuan knew that Yun Liuli must be upset over Gu Qingcheng’s departure.
Lin Nuan went over and stroked Yun Liuli on her head. “Perfect timing, I’m done here. Want to come with me for dessert?”
“I don’t wanna eat…” Yun Liuli felt aggrieved and wasn’t throwing a tantrum. “Sister Xiao Nuan, I feel terrible. How long until I get to see Gu Qingcheng?”
What she felt most aggrieved about was that Gu Qingcheng managed to bluff his way out of having sexual relations with her.
Seeing Yun Liuli’s aggrieved manner, Lin Nuan ultimately said, “Then… want to go to the Fu residence with me tonight?”
Yun Liuli sensed a difference in Lin Nuan’s tone, so she looked up at Lin Nuan. She saw Lin Nuan winking at her.
Mu Taotao wasn’t around Lin Nuan recently, and another makeup artist took her place. Lin Nuan wasn’t quite used to that. When the makeup artist came over to help remove Lin Nuan’s makeup, Lin Nuan gently smiled and said that she would do it herself!
Just then, the person that Lin Nuan sent out to buy the production crew snacks and milk tea returned. Fang Yan handed a cup of milk tea to Yun Liuli. “Why does our Xiao Liuli look so glum?”
Yun Liuli took the milk tea from her and drank a mouthful on the sofa before saying, “Vexed over how to earn money…”
“Earn money?” Fang Yan’s eyes lit up. She went over and sat down next to Yun Liuli, like a caring big sister.
Lin Nuan was rendered speechless.
Lin Nuan could guess what Fang Yan was up to.
Fang Yan had shown interest in You Nainai and Yun Liuli since a long time ago. She only gave up after seeing that You Nainai and Yun Liuli weren’t keen on joining the entertainment industry.
Upon hearing Yun Liuli mention her need for money now, Fang Yan felt she could try duping the pretty young lady into the circle.
Never mind if she couldn’t act or sing! It would do so long as she looked pretty enough to defeat the other young actresses with her looks!
Although the entertainment industry wasn’t lacking in beauties, Fang Yan had excellent judgment!
Yun Liuli looked both aloof and fragile, as unattainable as Tianshan snowy lotus. Like her name, she was as clear and fragile as colored glaze. There were too few such beauties around!
A celebrity’s public persona was important in the entertainment industry these days!
A girl like Yun Liuli… there were none like her in the circle!
That meant Yun Liuli was unique!
There were too many beautiful things in this world, but unique things were rare!
Such as Lin Nuan, who had a chivalrous air about her despite her demure demeanor. Combining these two qualities, she was very suited to work as a newsperson. She gave off a serious aura and also felt gentle and affable like the big sister next door. On top of that, there was a hint of aloofness to her. So many newbies in the industry wanted to emulate Lin Nuan’s public persona!
Alas… they didn’t have the Iraq experience, nor did they have the serious aura her career as a newsperson instilled in her. They couldn’t emulate her even if they tried! Lin Nuan was one of a kind!
In Fang Yan’s eyes, Yun Liuli’s beauty was one of a kind. Especially in this day and age where plastic surgery was the norm, Yun Liuli looked naturally youthful with her collagen-filled face.
Girls at this age were at their most beautiful. It would be a pity for her not to launch her career as an entertainment artist now!
Fang Yan began to brainwash the young lady. She told her the remuneration Lin Nuan received from filming a movie and what she earned for one episode of a show! She also said that this was despite the fact that Lin Nuan was a show host and was picky about acting in movies… that she wasn’t going for volume. If Yun Liuli’s goal was to make money, she could go for volume, and she was bound to make a fortune that way.
As she listened to Fang Yan brainwash the young lady, Lin Nuan took the thermos cup that You Nainai handed to her and said with a frown, “Do I still have to drink this?”
“You’re on your period, and Sir Fu has instructed me… to make sure you drink this longan red dates tea!” You Nainai looked towards the mineral water bottle Lin Nuan just set down. “I won’t tell Sir Fu you drank mineral water!”
Lin Nuan’s name was written on the mineral water bottle, so she couldn’t deny it even if she wanted to.
Lin Nuan said nothing. She twisted open the thermos cup and turned to look at Yun Liuli and Fang Yan.
Fang Yan told the young lady a lot about the industry. Although the young lady couldn’t understand all of it, she listened very attentively. Moreover, the intelligent Yun Liuli understood the meaning from the context of Fang Yan’s words.
Lastly, Yun Liuli concluded, “Sister Yan, you mean to say that after I join the entertainment industry, if, like Fu Tianci, I can sing, I’ll be able to make money, and I can also make money acting? Once I become famous, it’ll be very easy for me to make money?”
“It’s not easy…” Fang Yan contemplated for a moment before saying to the young lady, “Regarding the entertainment industry, an outsider only sees the glamorous side but not the hardships behind the scenes. Actors and singers endure different kinds of hardships!”
She had said those words earlier to get the young lady to sign under her agency. She said these words now to get the young lady to understand that it was a difficult path ahead.
“Ask your Sister Nuan how many injuries she was inflicted with when she was filming in Morocco!” Fang Yan said to Yun Liuli with a smile, “For actors… it’s normal for them to get injured during filming. Which famous actor has never suffered an injury or ailment during filming? It’s not easy for singers either. They need to be able to dance and sing well… It’s also best if they can compose songs and write lyrics, for they will go further in their careers as a well-rounded singer. Else they’ll vanish from the scene quickly!”
Yun Liuli nodded. “I understand. That means… this path is especially difficult!”
“Right!” Fang Yan nodded, then said, “But Liuli, you’re very lucky. Your starting point is much higher than those people who don’t have connections. There’s a world of difference between you and them! You know why? Because you have the resources, you have me!”
Fang Yan smiled at Yun Liuli…
“So, after saying so much, Sister Yan, you’re trying to tell me that you’re a formidable player in this industry and want me to sign a contract with your agency, right?”
Fang Yan nodded, seemingly not at all surprised by Yun Liuli’s intelligence!
After all, she was a top-scoring student!
“How about it? Wanna try?” Fang Yan urged as she smiled keenly at Yun Liuli.
Yun Liuli calculated Gu Qingcheng’s usual expenses, then calculated the amount a top celebrity could fetch by attending a commercial event, as well as the remuneration from shooting a movie. Yun Liuli then nodded solemnly. “Okay…”
On the way to the Fu residence, Lin Nuan asked Yun Liuli, “Why do you suddenly want to earn money? Gu Qingcheng left the money for you with me. If you need money… just tell me how much you need. Don’t worry, I won’t ask how you spend the money!”
Yun Liuli shook her head. “That’s not it, Sister Xiao Nuan!”
Yun Liuli had a wish, and that was to provide for Gu Qingcheng.
 A precious and rare herb
