“Director Li Wei has already decided who he wants to be in his new movie. The one we had recommended this time was Ge Chen from Su Qi Cheng’s company. His qualifications are excellent all around, but Director Li Wei seemed to think that you have more explosive charm under the camera.” As Lu Tian Chen said those words, he glanced over at Tang Feng meaningfully.

During the audition, when Tang Feng had kissed Gino, Lu Tian Chen had been watching from the sidelines; he hadn’t even bought a ticket.

“President Lu, why don’t you just give it to me straight? Was I chosen or rejected?” After such a long-winded speech, the other still hadn’t reached the main point of the conversation. Lu Tian Chen was clearly playing with him.

“Impatient, aren’t we?” Curling the corners of his lips, Lu Tian Chen put down the knife he had been holding. “Let’s say it like this, between Ge Chen and you, there is a higher chance that Director Li Wei will choose you. Although Tian Chen Entertainment and Su Shi Entertainment are working in collaboration with Director Li Wei for the film, we are only responsible for marketing. The main investor is Charles.”

Tang Feng already knew this. So what? Lu Tian Chen just couldn’t finish in one go.

“Ge Chen was able to audition for the movie due to your deal with Charles, but clearly, Charles has been infatuated with you lately. So he, as an investor, has issued a request:if you become the lead of this movie, he will increase his investment.” At first, what Lu Tian Chen had said sounded normal, but upon closer inspection, he seemed to be implying something else.

Exactly what are you implying by saying “Charles has been infatuated with you lately?”

“That’s all thanks to the opportunity President Lu has given me.” Lu Tian Chen should have at least give him some opportunities to reply. Sitting there obediently and allowing the other man to mock him was simply not Tang Feng’s way of doing things.

“You’re welcome. You fought for it.” Lu Tian Chen said simply.

That thick-skinned man actually said those words without even blinking. Tang Feng felt as though he had met his match.

“Director Li Wei isn’t someone who can be controlled by the investors. His final decision isn’t clear yet. Other than you and Ge Chen, he is also recruiting actors from Japan and South Korea. However, between the two of you, your chances of getting the role is higher, which is why I’ve decided to invest in you from now on.”

I’m your employee, and I make money for you. From the start, you should have invested in me instead of someone from your business competitor.

Due to that… Tang Feng didn’t feel much gratitude toward Lu Tian Chen. He knew his self-worth. If it wasn’t for the fact that he was locked under contract with Tian Chen Entertainment, he would go somewhere else; he’d do just as well no matter where he was.

The world wasn’t lacking in good actors. There were many of them, but the ones who could go above and beyond all others were few in number.

“Your reaction is quite bland,” Lu Tian Chen said.

“President Lu, I won’t disappoint you.” And I certainly won’t disappoint myself.

Lu Tian Chen smiled faintly, “A few days ago, Charles brought you to a few places and you met a few people. But you should focus on your work and not worry about those things; I will take care of them.”

“Thank you, President Lu.” After hearing those words, Tang Feng saw Lu Tian Chen in a much better light. He certainly had felt frustrated about the matter with Albert and it was best if he had fewer things to worry about. All he wanted to do was work hard and live well. He didn’t want to get involved with bothersome criminal organizations.”

“Are you this polite with Charles as well?” Lu Tian Chen glanced over at him.

“You’re my boss.” If you’re polite with someone like Charles,  he’d eat you up for breakfast. So you absolutely cannot show him any courtesy. At times, you even need to put him in his place. Otherwise, he’d really sell you off.

Lu Tian Chen smiled without saying anything. They finished their meal, and he drove Tang Feng back to Charles’ villa.

“I’ll have people get you in touch with some magazines. Also, in two weeks, I’ll come and pick you up,” Lu Tian Chen said as he left.

Tang Feng let out a sigh of relief. Lu Tian Chen was finally seeing him as an actual employee.

    I like the, how should it be called…. fights(?) between Tang Feng and Lu Tian Chen; the intellectual battles that go in between them.

    “I’m your employee, and I make money for you. From the start, you should have invested in me instead of someone from your business competitor.”
    SO TRUE! See? This is why LTC is a bastard!

    ““Are you this polite with Charles as well?” Lu Tian Chen glanced over at him.

    “You’re my boss.” If you’re polite with someone like Charles, he’d eat you up for breakfast. So you absolutely cannot show him any courtesy. At times, you even need to put him in his place. Otherwise, he’d really sell you off.””
    Love this part. It says so much about both men and how Tang Feng would be to them if he didn’t have chains holding him back. but he’s smart and experienced enough to be able to work around that too, just not enough to his liking probably.

    yay! Tang Feng’s closer to becoming a star again. unless something happens or someone screws him over, then this can be his big break! I can’t wait!

    thank you for all your work and updating!! you guys are amazing!

  11. Devil says:

    Haha, man I’m getting greedy. :C I’m sorry. Haha. xD
    Thanks for the awesome release. :D

  12. Aoi says:

    EEEE!!! Another one?! I don’t know how you guys do it…< 33

    • Aoi says:

      Question…for some reason, this stumped me: “Lu Tian Chen had been watching from the sidelines; he hadn’t even bought a ticket.” What does this part mean?

      • Syrra says:

        I think for some movie shoots and such things, the public can buy tickets that allow them to watch the filming/stuff for that day. That’s my comprehension of it.

        • Nana says:

          I didn’t realize that. I just thought it was a (kind of awkward way) to say that LTC had watched a hot kiss without even (figuratively) having to pay to watch…

          • Nannyn says:

            Your understanding of it is correct. In this case, the “show” is the kiss between Gino and Tang Feng. Hence, the “not buying a ticket” part. The ticket in this case doesn’t have anything to do with watching the audition.

  13. kiumi says:

    Thank you so much!
    I’ve been re-reading this story recently and been very grateful you choose to release several chaps <3

  14. no3b says:

    Aaahh!! T^T

    I feel a bit at ease that Pres Lu promised to not let Albert get his hands on him, but it seems silly to introduce Albert&co if they aren’t going to be a problem.

    Thank you!!! <3

    • Irid says:

      Well, at least introducing Albert & co. shows Charles’s dark side. Without them, I would have continued to think that Charles was a good person, despite being somewhat of a playboy.

      • Tangy Citrus says:

        yeah, true, true. i’m not sure if i saw it or understood it as that before, but now i have it locked in stone saying “Charles has a dark side.”

      • no3b says:

        Yeah, you’re right. They do have a purpose in that sense, and it’s true that it puts Charles in a different light (or in the dark huh? lol). More importantly since for some reason, I’ve always (unconsciously) pushed Charles to the side when it came to characters. I’m not even sure why, but perhaps he does have a bigger role than “the guy screwing Feng at the moment.” xD

  15. s3ri says:

    Thank you!

  16. phanata says:

    So fast update,thank you!

  17. Alynn Nana says:

    You can’t hear me or see me but trust me (or at least attempt to trust me) when I say that I am currently breathing heavily while lustingly reading this not quite sexual chapter while also writing this comment. So yeah, back and forth. This chapter did not disappoint!

    Thank you so much and am looking forward to future releases soon. Fingers cross.
