“Sorry for the trouble. I’m Su Yang’s agent, Su Qing.” A man suddenly pulled the back of Su Yang’s neck and apologized to Luo Lingxing and He Yi.
This man wore a white shirt, black pants, and a pair of gold wire framed glasses. If they didn’t know his identity, they would think he was a professional elite.
“It’s fine,” Luo Lingxing shook his head and said there wasn’t a problem.
“Cousin…” Su Yang called out pitifully. Although his cousin usually looked very gentle, he knew that once his cousin got angry, he was very scary. Therefore, he was better to just be obedient.
Luo Lingxing and He Yi were a bit surprised when they heard what Su Yang called him. They didn’t expect Su Yang’s agent to be his cousin.
“Be quiet. Do you remember what I told you before we came?” Su Qing looked at Su Yang with a serious expression. When he wasn’t smiling, he looked like someone who wasn’t easy to get along with.
Su Yang was carried aside by Su Qing to be scolded. Luo Lingxing and He Yi were led to the lounge by the staff members to rest.
Although Luo Lingxing was the male protagonist this time, since his current status could only be considered a B or C rated artist, he didn’t have his own private room. However, there weren’t many people in this lounge, and it could be seen that the crew members were very attentive toward him.
“Brother Han.” Several people inside the room suddenly stood and respectfully greeted the person who just walked through the door.
Luo Lingxing also turned his head and saw a slightly feminine looking man walking over. He was Han Yemeng, the other male protagonist of ‘Supreme Duel Heros’.
Han Yameng looked gentle and reserved, but his facial features were very delicate. He was skilled at period costume shoots and dubbed by his fans as the “Prince of Period Costume.” He won the crown as the film king for the Golden Rabbit Award with a period drama. This was also the reason Director Sun invited him to join. On the one hand, his acting skills were indeed good, on the other, he was very popular. They could use his popularity to increase the show’s ratings.
Using the popularity of the starring actors to increase their TV ratings had been a long common practice. Many directors would consider this.
“Brother Han,” Luo Lingxing calmly greeted. With the other party’s age and popularity, calling him brother wasn’t inappropriate.
Han Yameng nodded to the others but acted as if he didn’t see Luo Lingxing. He then turned around and left the lounge. He had a personal lounge, so he wouldn’t stay here.
The atmosphere inside the lounge was stiff for a moment, because everyone could see that Han Yameng had deliberatly ignored Luo Lingxing to embarrass him. However, their statuses weren’t as high as Han Yameng, so they naturally wouldn’t stand up for Luo Lingxing. Not to mention that there were numerous celebrities here who had long been envious and jealous of Luo Lingxing. At this moment, they were excited to see his misfortune.
Luo Lingxing didn’t think anything of Han Yameng ignoring him. It was just that he had felt a trace of hostility from Han Yameng, but this was the first time they had met, and he hadn’t done anything. Why was the other party so hostile toward him? It was very strange.
“Stop chatting. The opening ceremony is about to start. Hurry up and change,” a staff member came in to remind everyone.
Everyone had their makeup artists start their makeup. Luo Lingxing was the only one sitting there, but no one came up to him. This was the first time He Yi had followed Luo Lingxing on to the set. He didn’t have time to do any training to be an assistant, so he was at a loss.
“Why don’t you go out and see if there’s a free makeup artist?” Luo Lingxing whispered to He Yi.
“I’ll be right back.” He Yi hurriedly walked out.
There were some loose mouthed actors behind him and had already begun to talk about Luo Lingxing.
“I didn’t expect Brother Han to give such a show of strength as soon as he arrived. As expected of Brother Han. Newcomers should act like newcomers. Which one of us didn’t start as a newcomer? So why should he get such special treatment?” an actress said with indignation. Her low was very low since they were all in the same set, and it wouldn’t be good to cause a scene.
“It looks like Brother Han is really dissatisfied with him. I don’t know how he got this role as a newcomer.”
“What other means could he use besides that?” The person who spoke slightly raised his eyebrow, revealing an expression saying “everyone should know.” Luo Lingxing quietly sat in his seat. If he still wasn’t aware that the other party was trying to embarrass him, then his high IQ would just be a waste. It really didn’t matter which world he was in, exceptional people would always gather jealousy. He had long been accustomed to this since in his previous life, his cultivation talent was very rare. There were countless people who were envious and jealous of him. Compared to those people in his previous life, the current number of people was a lot lower.
However, it didn’t feel good to be targeted by others on the set. Although he didn’t want to care about it, there were flies buzzing around him, which was very annoying. He might as well just teach them a lesson and save himself some peace of mind to have a peaceful life on set.
The corners of Luo Lingxing’s mouth rose slightly, evoking a sinister smile that was completely different from usual. However, his head was now slightly lowered, so no one saw it.
He Yi returned very quickly with a female makeup artist following behind him.
“I’m sorry, it really was too busy earlier. I’ll do your makeup now,” the makeup artist said with an apologetic look, but Luo Lingxing didn’t feel any sincerity behind her apology.
However, this was nothing. Luo Lingxing lifted his head. The corner of his mouth raised slightly, and he said with a gentle expression. “It’s okay.”
Although he had said it was okay, anyone who saw him could tell that it wasn’t okay. His expression was very gentle, but the people in the lounge felt that the air inside the lounge had suddenly cooled down. It was as if they were in the cold winter month, causing everyone to shiver, especially the makeup artist next to him. It was so cold that they couldn’t breathe.
“If you don’t start now, we may not be able to make it to the opening ceremony in time.” Luo Lingxing had a conflicted expression as if he was worried about being late. However, his gaze to the makeup artist through the mirror made the makeup artist’s heart tremble, and she didn’t dare to slack off any longer.
The makeup artist couldn’t calm down until the makeup was finished.
“Thank you,” Luo Lingxing thanked her, then turned to leave the lounge. The markup artist’s legs were soft, and she completely fell onto the group. He obviously had on a gentle expression, so why did his gaze feel like he was going to kill her? Was it because she had watched too many dramas recently, and this was a side effect of that?
When Luo Lingxing changed his clothes and came out, he was already a bit late. Most of the actors were already in their places. For today’s opening ceremony, Director Sun had invited numerous media outlets, who were currently filming the actors.
According to the rankings of their statuses, Luo Lingxing’s position should be between Han Yameng and Yao Qingqing. However, at this moment, the two of them were standing very close together, giving others the feeling that they were lovely couples. Especially considering that they had just finished filming together. In this era where s*x scandal was rampant everywhere, the reporters who saw the two standing together naturally were unwilling to let go of this chance. How could they have time to think of Luo Lingxing?
Several female supporting characters stood next to Yao Qingqing. All of them stood close to each other. They were obviously not leaving any space for Luo Lingxing.
Seeing this situation, how could Luo Lingxing not realize that these people were trying to put him in his place. This was especially evident when Han Yameng and Yao Qingqing casted provocative glances at him.
Although Yao Qingqing was jealous of Luo Lingxing, she didn’t originally intend to embarrass Luo Lingxing so blatantly. However, the scene between Han Yameng and Luo Lingxing in the lounge made her instantly stand on Han Yameng’s side since regardless of acting skills or status, Luo Lingxing couldn’t compare to Han Yameng. Standing on his side, she could suck up to Han Yameng as well as give Luo Lingxing a hard time. She naturally wouldn’t let go of this chance to kill two birds with one stone.
He Yi stood next to Luo Lingxing and naturally understood the situation. Although he hadn’t mixed in the entertainment industry previously, he still knew some things since he was going to be Luo Lingxing’s assistant. He had specially looked up a lot of relevant information on the internet. He was now full of anxiety and self-blame, and wished that Chen Hongliang could appear right at this instant. He could probably be of some help.
However, compared to He Yi’s anxiousness, Luo Lingxing didn’t seem anxious at all. He slowly and calmly walked toward the team.
Many reporters also noticed Luo Lingxing. They looked at Luo Lingxing, then looked at Han Yameng and Yao Qingqing. They were all intelligent reporters, so how could they not understand? However, they were very happy to watch this scene, because regardless of what Luo Lingxing did next, it would probably make headlines.
In the eyes of the reporters, Luo Lingxing only had two choices. One was to ask Yao Qingqing to give up her position, but by doing this, it would seem like he was using his fame to disrespect his seniors. The other choice was to stand at the end of the line, but this would make him seem very weak. No matter which choice was picked, it was an impossible situation. However, reporters loved situations like these.
However, to their surprise, Luo Lingxing didn’t say or do anything. He just walked toward them with a smile on his face as if he didn’t feel embarrassed at all.
“Ah!” Yao Qingqing suddenly screamed as she fell backward. There just so happened to be space between Han and another female supporting character.
Yao Qingqing’s fall wasn’t light. Her entire body was full of pain and she couldn’t get back up. Luo Lingxing stepped up, and with a trace of worry on his face, said, “Sister Yao, you might have sprained your ankle. It’s better if you go to the side and rest.”
Yao Qingqing’s agent hurried over to help Yao Qingqing sit on the side, and Luo Lingxing stood in her previous position. He only had to waste a tiny bit of spiritual energy and he was able to get his position back while also giving the reporters an impression that he was the “bigger person who cared about his seniors.” It really was quite profitable.
Luo Lingxing’s mood was currently very good. He hadn’t done such a thing in a very long time. Since he cultivation entered the Nascent Soul realm, fewer people dared to provoke him. And as his cultivation increased, his state of mind also became more stable. This meant that even if some nasty people tried to stir up trouble, he would be too lazy to pay attention to these people, so there weren’t many opportunities for him to teach someone a lesson like he had today.
He didn’t sympathize with people like Yao Qingqing in the slightest. Even if the main culprit wasn’t her, if she hadn’t harbored malice and decided to work with others, she wouldn’t have fallen into her current situation.
