about to hang up, but when he saw the Caller ID, the corner of his mouth twitched, “I’m going out to answer the phone call.”
As soon as the door closed, a roar gushed out of the phone, “Shen Yixiao! Where did you run off to! The whole crew is waiting for you! Do you not want to shoot anymore!”
Shen Yixiao moved the phone away and only brought it back to his ear after the shouting was over.
“Director Li, I’m sorry, I was in a hurry and forgot to ask for leave.
My younger brother’s in the hospital because he was pushed down the stairs and hit his head.
I will make up for it when I return.
“In the hospital? Is it serious?” Director Li’s voice instantly dropped when he heard this.
“It looks okay, but the complexion doesn’t look very good.”
“Forget it, I won’t haggle with you this time.
Come back as soon as you’re finished with your matters over there.”
“Okay, thank you, Director Li.”
If it was an ordinary director, they would definitely be reverent and respectful toward Shen Yixiao, this movie emperor with acting skills, traffic, and capital.
However, Director Li was different.
In front of this serious old man, no matter how big you are, as long as your acting was not good or if you were messing around, you would be scolded like a grandchild.
But it was no match for his strength.
It was unknown how many people his movies made famous, so even if they were scolded into crying countless times, as long as he was making a movie, numerous film emperors and film queens were willing to participate in the tryouts.
After Shen Yixiao hung up the phone, he sighed and booked an airplane ticket for the afternoon.
“Xiao Ling, I won’t be able to accompany you these days.” When Shen Yixiao came in, his face was full of guilt.
Although Shen Yixiao was famous, he never put on airs.
He was the lead actor, so every delay would cost the crew a lot of money.
And although he could easily earn back that money, he didn’t want to affect every else just because of him.
“Second Brother, it’s okay.
In a few days, I’ll be discharged from the hospital, and I’ll go visit the crew.
We can meet up again then.” Shen Jiangling said with a smile.
“Okay, it’s a deal!” Shen Yixiao stretched out his little finger.
“一deal.” Shen Jiangling hooked his little finger with his and even stamped it with his thumb at the end.
After the agreement was made, Shen Yixiao was once again composed.
He waved at Shen Jiangling, but the moment he turned around, the smile in his eyes instantly disappeared.
“Xiao Li, I remember that the Leng Group also has an entertainment company, right?” After getting into the car, Shen Yixiao muttered to himself before asking the assistant seated beside him.
Yes, why are you asking, Brother Chen?”
“Come here.” Shen Yixiao waved him over.
The assistant leaned over with a confused look and after listening, his face revealed an expression of mischief.
“Brother Shen, don’t worry, I promise to complete the task!”
“After completing this task, your salary will be doubled.” Shen Yixiao nodded with satisfaction.
A few days later, Shen Jiangling was discharged from the hospital.
In reality, his head was actually not injured that severely.
Still, his family was worried and wanted him to recuperate in the hospital until he removed his bandages, so he could only obediently listen.
Shen Jiangling rubbed the top of his head, a little worried, “Doctor, it won’t become bald, right?”
To deal with the wound, a small area of his head was shaved clean, and now that the injury was scabbed over, the area was slippery to the touch.
At least girls could grow out their hair and cover it, but if he just had a bald spot, how unsightly would it be?
“No, it will grow back in a few days.” The question amused the doctor.
“That’s good.” Shen Jiangling let out a sigh of relief.
After tidying up his stuff, he glanced at Father and Mother Shen, who supported him on both sides, and then looked at his big brother and others who followed worriedly behind.
He couldn’t help but smile.
Those who didn’t know would think he had some severe illness.
But it felt so good to be loved that Shen Jiangling couldn’t refuse.
The atmosphere was originally good, but the air froze when they met an unexpected guest downstairs.
“Leng Sihan, why are you here?” Shen Xuanjing and Jiang Haotian stood before Shen Jiangling and looked at him vigilantly.
“I heard Jiangling will be discharged today, so I came to take a look.” Leng Sihan looked toward Shen Jiangling.
He initially thought that Shen Jiangling’s anger would be gone after so many days, and he would definitely show a grateful expression when he saw how he specially came to see him off.
But as a result, he didn’t.
Leng slowly frowned.
He also felt a bit impatient.
“Is there anything else? If there isn’t, we’ll leave first.” Shen Xuanjing turned his head and glanced at Shen Jiangling, afraid that he would change his mind and jump back into the fire pit.
“Shen Jiangling, you come here.
I have something to tell you.” After Leng Sihan spoke, he didn’t even wait for Shen Jiangling to respond before walking aside.
In the past, Shen Jiangling would obediently follow no matter how angry he was.
But that was impossible now.
Leng Sihan walked a few steps, but when he glanced back, he saw that Shen Jiangling didn’t move a single step.
His face instantly dropped, “Shen Jiangling, did you not hear that I told you to come over?”
It’s not like he’s never ordered Shen Jiangling around in front of his family before, but Shen Jiangling would always rush forward.
They couldn’t stop him at all, and he would even speak on Leng Sihan’s behalf to defend him.
Hence, the family had no choice, but to watch him take the initiative to lose money every time.
In fact, they were willing to assist Leng Sihan because they wanted him to treat Shen Jiangling better.
“I heard it, but why should I go over?” Shen Jiangling slowly said, “I’m not some dog you’re raising, so why should I come when you call?”
Jiang Haotian and the others let out a sigh of relief when they heard this.
“Leng Sihan, let’s break our engagement.” Shen Jiangling met his gaze and said word by word.
I’m glad that Father and Mother Shen noticed the original owner’s departure, albeit subconsciously.
