Midnight Cinderella - Chapter 69
The Forty-Sixth Night (1)
Since Feng Jing took a two-hour break during the day, in order not to delay the crew’s progress, the filming at night also ended late. Seeing that it was 11:40 p.m., after wrapping the final scene, Feng Jing raced into his nanny car without taking off his costume. Mi Xie Er, who was waiting in the driver’s seat, stepped on the accelerator as soon as Feng Jing got in the car and drove out.
The car disappeared into the night in the blink of an eye.
Director and assistant directors: “—”
“Director Xie, do you think that the rumors about Feng Jing online are true?”
“What rumors? The one about him hitting someone?”
“No, it’s something about him transforming at the stroke of midnight.”
This night was considered to have passed without issue. The next morning, Feng Jing was summoned to the office.
“The final contract with Fleur has been finalized. You can sign it directly if you have no problems with it.” Qin Fan handed him a contract and took a sip of the coffee his secretary had just made for him.
Feng Jing picked up the contract and opened it. There were many terms in the contract, and he could not read everything in one go. However, after having worked with Qin Fan for so long, he trusted his professional ability, so he only skimmed over the important points.
When he was reading the contract, Mi Xie Er went to the breakroom and made coffee for himself. As soon as he went out, he heard the two little assistants inside, gossiping about Feng Jing.
“I just saw Feng Jing arrive at the company. Is he signing a contract with Fleur?”
“I think so. Wasn’t the scandal about him hitting someone still going on? I thought the contract would be postponed.”
“But he has a strong backing. Feng Ping still holds most of the shares in Tianqin. President Qin has to support him.”
“Yeah, I’m worried about my artist, who is also from Tianqin, with the resources being distributed so unevenly like this.”
Mi Xie Er couldn’t stand it. He walked in deliberately and interrupted their conversation. The pair of busybodies were obviously flustered when they saw him.
Mi Xie Er took a cup, poured himself a coffee, eyed the duo, and sneered as he said, “If you have so much free time to gossip about others, it’s better you use it to persuade both of your bosses to work harder on memorizing their lines instead. During filming, you two frequently need to prompt your bosses their lines, right? But, my Boss Feng never needs me to do that.”
As exciting as it was to watch the changing expressions on the faces of those two assistants, Mi Xie Er left immediately after adding sugar to his coffee.
Hmph, these people can only see the benefits Feng Jing reaps but totally ignore the amount of work he puts in!
He had finished his cup of coffee when Feng Jing came out of Qin Fan’s office. He stepped up and asked him, “Boss Feng, have you signed a contract with Fleur?”
“Yes. So now we need to quickly get to the studio.”
“Good!” Mi Xie Er inwardly laughed three times.
Hahaha, contract signed! Some people are gonna be pissed!
As soon as they had signed the contract, Tianqin’s PR team wasted no time and the soon news made it far and wide. Fleur’s public image had always been stoic, but because Feng Jing was their first celebrity spokesperson, Tianqin would naturally hype this news to the best of their abilities.
This scoop quickly diluted the influence of Feng Jing’s “hitting people” scandal. Immediately after Bunny publicly announced Feng Jing as their representative for the advertising poster for their Christmas-limited perfume, the focus shifted to his looks.
Jiang Ran was also a member of his army of fans. Although Feng Jing had already told her about this ad, she was still entranced by his handsomeness after seeing the official picture!
Following Serenade No. 007, this perfume was about to become the new king of cosmetics. Fortunately, she had already acquired it, hee hee!
After seeing the perfume poster, Yan Huanhuan excitedly invited Jiang Ran to line up with her again.
【Yan Huanhuan: Jiang Ran, let’s go buy the perfume on the 25th! The Bunny one! The bottle looks good of course, but Feng Jing looks the best!”
【Jiang Ran: You can go by yourself, there will be a lot of people rushing to snatch it, I don’t want to go.】
【Yan Huanhuan: Little comrade of mine, our party, and country have educated you for so many years, and here you are, giving up all because of a little inconvenience. How will you be able to continue following my lead as we promote our important ideals to society?】
Jiang Ran: …
【Yan Huanhuan: I will call you on Christmas. [smiles]】
【Jiang Ran: I don’t know if I should tell you something.】
【Yan Huanhuan: What’s the matter?】
【Jiang Ran: Christmas is on a Monday. You have work.】
Yan Huanhuan: …
【Yan Huanhuan: I’ll ask for a leave!】
Jiang Ran was trying to reply to her when she received a new WeChat message. After reading it, she painfully returned to Yan Huanhuan’s message box.
【Jiang Ran: I don’t think you should take leave.】
【Yan Huanhuan: Why?】
【Jiang Ran: Because you have to give money to other people again.】
【Yan Huanhuan: ???】
【Jiang Ran: Did you get a message from Du Xiaoyou?】
Yan Huanhuan went to check, and then came back in tears.
【Yan Huanhuan: F*ck, Du Xiaoyou is going to get married???】
【Jiang Ran: Yes, do you still want to ask for leave?】
Yan Huanhuan: …. …….
【Yan Huanhuan: Why is life so difficult?! How much gift money have I given this year?! Why are people getting married at the end of the year?!】
【Jiang Ran: I didn’t expect it either. The last month of the year and I still need to take care of one more large expense.】
【Yan Huanhuan: [Heart hurts. Can’t breathe.jpg]】
【Yan Huanhuan: I will one day take back all this money I gave away …. [Smile] If I don’t get married by the age of 30, I will… invite them to join me at my 30th birthday celebration.】
Jiang Ran: …………
Could she not go?
