Du Zheng frowned secretly. It was a little tricky, he didn't expect Tang Yuan to be involved.
Tang Yuan was a famous movie queen and was the heroine of this movie. The box office of this play was supported by her. If Tang Yuan was moved at such a time, it was likely to ruin the whole show. He was a businessman, and it was a taboo to do things on a whim.
Jin Ling'er seemed to notice his difficulty and she pulled her friend. "Yingluo."
Xia Yingluo was upset. "I'm seeking justice for you."
Du Yan looked at the two girls in front of him and made a decision. "This show can't move Tang Yuan, but I will give you an explanation when the show is finished." Big stars oppressed newcomers from time to time, so who would think anything of it? Today, it was Jin Ling'er and Xia Yingluo. If it were other people, Du Zheng might still suspect that they were making unreasonable trouble. How would they survive in the entertainment industry if they couldn't even stand this grievance?
Which big star of today didn't suffer humiliation when they were newcomers?
Xia Yingluo insisted. "We'll have to wait until the year of the monkey. Brother Du Zheng, can you be more sincere?" She was already wondering if she should find someone to put Tang Yuan in a sack and hit her. It was best to injure her face and make it swell so that she couldn't film either.
Jin Ling'er hurriedly called her. "Yingluo." She really didn't want to see her good friend make things difficult for someone else for her. She was an insignificant little newcomer and was very uncomfortable to be treated in such a precious way.
Du Zheng looked at her and, for some reason, there was a hint of unclearness in his heart. Some girls, such as Xia Yingluo, could live wildly and publicly. Even if they were self-indulgent, they were held in the palm of other people's hands. What about Jin Ling'er? Even if it was to assert her right, she had to be careful. He was inexplicably a little irritable and said to Jin Ling'er, "We can't move Tang Yuan at this time. What do you want other than that, I'll help you find a way."
Jin Ling'er glanced at him and seemed to be judging the truth of his words. After all, the two had only a few connections, and they were not familiar.
After thinking about it, she said, "I don't want to use a stand-in, I want to finish the show myself. Let me go back to the studio, Mr. Du." Didn't those tabloid reporters said that she wasn't dedicated? She would be dedicated and show them once and for all! In any case, it was the role that she had taken, so she would finish shooting even if she was sick!
"You're so sick, I won't allow it." Du Zheng refused without thinking.
There were actors who filmed even while ill, but for some unknown reason, Du Zheng didn't want Jin Ling'er to do the same.
Xia Yingluo also advised. "Jing'er, you still have a fever. How could you shoot when you're ill? Take some rest."
While talking, she turned to Du Zheng. "Brother Du Zheng, you can delay Ling'er's shoot for a few days. As for the loss, I will make up for it."
Jin Ling'er was startled. "No! Yingluo." She also knew how much the crew needed to pay for an extra day. Xia Yingluo's kindness was too great. She didn't want her friend to burn so much money for herself.
Du Zheng calculated it and thought that this might not be feasible. Businessmen sought to profit. As long as someone could make up the shortfall, it could be delayed for a few days. But he glanced at Jin Ling'er's anxious face and asked, "You don't want to?" After all, this time they were helping Jin Ling'er. If she didn't want to do it herself, it wouldn't be a good thing.
Jin Ling'er was anxious. "I want to shoot myself, but I don't want others to say that I only relied on you. Yingluo, thank you for your kindness, but you'll only make me feel guilty."
"But…" Xia Yingluo was also tangled. She couldn't really let Tang Yuan have her way and replace Jin Ling'er with a substitute when she had won the role after much difficulty?
She was deadlocked when suddenly she heard Wei Lingnan chuckling.
Everyone turned back to look at him.
"What are you laughing at?" Xia Yingluo asked.
Wei Lingnan said stubbornly, "Why is it so troublesome? Isn't it easier to let her shoot healthily? I can give her another medicine, and it will take effect immediately after taking it." He looked at Xia Yingluo. "There are no side effects this time."
Xia Yingluo was hesitant after remembering how Jin Ling'er's condition had worsened after taking his medicine last time.
Wei Lingnan said, "The last time you didn't figure out the symptoms, and you took the viral infection as a cold. This time, it's for sure."
Xia Yingluo believed in Wei Lingnan. His amazing origins and high-tech were very amazing, but this was not her body, after all. It was Jin Ling'er's. Jin Ling'er had experienced failure once. Did she still trust him?
She couldn't help but glance at Jin Ling'er.
Jin Ling'er also looked at her. "Yingluo, do you believe in Wei Lingnan?"
Xia Yingluo hesitated and nodded. Although this man was sometimes ridiculous, there was nothing wrong with what he said.
So Jin Ling'er smiled. "If you believe him, then I believe him too."
"Ling'er." Xia Yingluo whispered.
Jin Ling'er looked at her calmly. "He's your boyfriend. I certainly believe in your vision. Besides, there's no better way, isn't it?" No matter what, it was a smaller loss for Xia Yingluo if she got the medicine from Wei Lingnan.
Xia Yingluo hesitated and nodded.
Wei Lingnan said, "I'll get people to take the medicine."
"No." Just when everyone was preparing to give Jin Ling'er the medicine, Du Zheng opened his mouth firmly.
Xia Yingluo glanced at him in surprise.
Jin Ling'er was also surprised. "President Du?"
"You're not a doctor?" Du Zheng stared straight at Wei Lingnan. "I can't let her take your medicine."
Wei Lingnan said nothing and raised his eyebrows gently.
"Mr. Du!" Jin Ling'er called out. "Nothing will happen. I won't make the crew responsible if anything happens! I just want to rush back to filming early!"
Du Zheng's expression was heavy. "No." Why, she thought he wouldn't let her take medication because he was afraid that she would make the crew take responsibility? This recognition made Du Zheng even more irritable.
Xia Yingluo was not happy. "She can't do this nor that, what are you doing, Brother Du Zheng? Are you here to visit Ling'er or to provoke her? Are you a spy sent by Tang Yuan!"
"It's not that."
"I'm not a spy sent by Tang Yuan." Du Zheng explained it seriously and groaned before he said, "I will tell the crew to push back Jin Ling'er's shoot without having to stand in for her. Take care of yourself here, and you'll be discharged when you're fine."
Jin Ling'er opened her eyes wide.
What did that mean, did he know how much money this would burn?
"You…" She looked at Du Zheng, stuttering speechlessly.
Xia Yingluo laughed. "That's right, at least you're loyal."
