Ch1 – Ningning, I finally found you

Ji Ning supported his chin with one hand and sat quietly by the window of the aircraft, watching the crew outside who were fixing the set for the upcoming movie.

The staff were very efficient and carefully positioned the large-scale equipment used for playing holographic images.
Soon this wasteland would take on a ghostly appearance, making the lonely old mansion appear even more formidable. 

The other people in the aircraft, like Ji Ning, were all actors who would be participating in the filming.

Ji Ning was an elegant beauty.
The corners of his lips were naturally slightly raised, as if he were smiling at all times.
His skin was smooth and even, and he had attractive honey brown eyes.
His whole person normally carried a gentle temperament.

 

 

But currently, Ji Ning bore a blank expression in order to maintain his current persona.
Contrary to his gentle appearance, within the novel’s setting he was an arrogant and indifferent genius, who wouldn’t take the initiative to communicate with other people.

As an experienced transmigrator, Ji Ning couldn’t allow himself to make low-level errors that would violate the basic settings of the world. 

Ji Ning remained silent as he looked covertly at a handsome man in the shadowy reflection of the window.
This man was the protagonist of the novel that Ji Ning had entered, the great actor Gu Chen.

 

This novel was called ‘Rebirth of the Interstellar Actor’ and was set in the future, interstellar era.
The main plot of the story details how the actor Gu Chen returned to the top of the entertainment world, surpassing the achievements of his previous life, after he was reborn a hundred years in the future.

At present, the plot of the original book has just begun, Gu Chen’s new identity was an eighteenth-tier star who had previously been blackened by the internet.
The film that is soon to start shooting is the first film he received after his rebirth, playing a supporting role, while Ji Ning played the lead role.

In the original work, Ji Ning played an antagonistic role to Gu Chen.
He was a genius newcomer movie star, who hid his identity as the prince of a well-known entertainment company and would deliberately provoke Gu Chen.
Although he was not a villain, the two of them acted as rivals; neither close, nor friendly.

 

Using such an identity, Ji Ning’s main task was to capture Gu Chen, and make Gu Chen fall in love with him.
Fortunately at this point, the original plotline had only just begun, and he and Gu Chen were still strangers.

But for Ji Ning, it wouldn’t matter even if Gu Chen had already hated him.
Before this task, he had already experienced ten worlds.
The main task of each world was to make the protagonist fall in love with him.
He has long become familiar with such things.

What’s more, compared with some of the perverted male protagonists he had encountered, Gu Chen’s character was almost normal and could even be seen as very cute!

 

Briefly recalling some past events, Ji Ning’s expression faintly twisted, but he quickly masked it.

Soon a knock came from the door of the aircraft, and a staff member came to inform them that the venue was set up and they were ready to begin filming.

Several people stood up and got ready, with Ji Ning at the forefront.
As soon as he stepped out of the thermoregulated aircraft, his hair was gently mussed by the wind outside, and his bare skin chilled.

The gloomy sky was densely covered with rolling dark clouds, appearing heavy and depressed.
However, both the gloomy sky and the cold temperature were only simulations created by holographic instruments.

They were aiming to shoot a horror film called “Ghost Mansion” as supernatural films were currently very popular.
If it was filmed well, it would naturally do well.
Moreover, this type of film was cheap to make and suitable for newcomer actors. 

The investment in “Ghost Mansion” was considered to be in the upper-middle levels among supernatural type films.
The script was well written and the director reputable but the rest of the cast, except for Ji Ning, were newcomers with no background and wouldn’t normally have a chance to star in such a film.

But this was a film few actors were interested in.
Because the old mansion they planned to use during the filming was definitely a cursed house.

Years ago, an appalling murder case occurred within the old house.
A family of six died.
Their corpses were mutilated and dismembered, while the murderer committed suicide on the spot.
The murderer’s stomach was later found to contain chunks of the deceased’s flesh and hair.

It was never dicovered what the murderer’s motive was for killing the family and eating their corpses.
Most people suspected that the murderer held a blood feud against the family or that some wicked ritual was the cause of this tragedy. 

It was for this reason that Gu Chen received this chance to film, and later used it to further his career.

“This is the famous cursed house…”

Ji Ning and the staff walked towards the haunted house.
There was a sudden gust of cold wind through the leaves.
Some old wind chimes jingled, causing the actors to turn a little pale, murmuring together in low voices. 

“You can all get adjusted to the set for a bit.
We will start shooting in fifteen minutes.
Please be prepared for then, thank you.”

The staff smiled at them and walked away, leaving the actors by the wicked looking mansion.

Several newcomers talked in low voices, discussing the homicides of that year.
Ji Ning folded his arms and said nothing, while Gu Chen was shunned due to the internet’s smear campaign against him and stood alone.

Ji Ning’s gaze swept over Gu Chen.
Even though he had been excluded, Gu Chen stayed composed, ignoring the other’s attitudes, and focusing on the old house. 

After a while, Gu Chen called up a transparent light board from the mini terminal attached to his wrist, to show the internal structure of the old mansion.
His slender fingers danced across the light board, zooming in on particular rooms from time to time.
He appeared to be comparing the house’s blueprint with the content of the script.

As an actor, Gu Chen’s attitude towards filming was impeccably dedicated, similar to Ji Ning’s current persona.
Although he acted arrogant, he was extremely strict with himself and wouldn’t tolerate any mistakes.

So of course, Ji Ning also called up his own script from the terminal.
Using this as an opening, he was finally able to say his first words to Gu Chen.

“You’re not bad.” 

Ji Ning walked to
