(Feel Free and Bravely Do What You Have to Do)
Sun Yiwu knew that Lu Man was skilled in public relations but he didn’t know this was her style.
She would tell you clearly exactly what she was about to, completely unafraid that of any consequences or changes, unafraid that you would leak her plan out.
This self-confidence came from deep within her bones.
“Alright, no problem.” Sun Yiwu agreed extremely readily; it was obvious that Bai Shuangshuang had thoroughly annoyed and angered him. “And if the investors have any opinions regarding this, I’ll fend them off, feel free and bravely do what you have to do.”
“Thank you,” Lu Man smiled and replied.
“Oh right, I have an idea. Since you’re a professional, could you take a look and tell me whether it would be alright?” Sun Yiwu said, “I’m not going to lie to you, what Bai Shuangshuang did has completely crossed the line with me. I have no reason to keep her around to continue harming me, and I don’t want to let her use my movie to increase her popularity. I want to delete all of her scenes.”
Lu Man raised her eyebrows in surprise. “Delete all of them? Will that be alright?”
Sun Yiwu scoffed indignantly, “It will be fine. First of all, she only got the role through connections. I had no choice but to give her an insignificant side role and let her just appear in the movie for a short screen time with a couple of lines. The movie can do without her. To be honest, her role is rather redundant and excessive, it even makes the pace of the movie rather weird. After deleting her role, the pace of the movie will be a lot clearer and faster. Regarding her character removal, I won’t tell her about it. She can find out about it on her own once the film premieres.”
Lu Man instantly understood Sun Yiwu’s intentions. “Then the effect would be even better. The audience wouldn’t even know that she was in the movie once. Also, when Bai Shuangshuang finds out, as long as she continues to cause a huge ruckus on the internet, the movie will just keep trending and people will keep talking about it. If that’s the case, I can release the scandal about Bai Shuangshuang earlier. It all depends on when Bai Shuangshuang blows up. As long as she can hold it back, I’ll release the news at the time I originally planned to. If she can’t hold it back, I’ll just release it right after she blows up.”
“Sure, sure.” Sun Yiwu was extremely satisfied. “Let’s do it this way!”
After she finished discussing with Sun Yiwu, Lu Man contacted Tang Zi. Actually, she could have contacted Han Zhuoli too, but digging up the dirt on other people was Tang Zi’s field of expertise. There was no need to trouble Han Zhuoli again.
After she finished discussing with Tang Zi, Lu Man returned back the next day.
There Han Zhuoli had brought Xia Qingwei along to the airport to fetch Lu Man.
The moment Xia Qingwei met Lu Man, her heart ached tremendously. She caressed Lu Man’s face and said, “You’ve lost weight.”
“I didn’t, you just haven’t seen me in a long time that’s all, Mom. When I was working on the set, Brother Han even found a maid to take care of my well being. Every day, she would find different ways to feed me with all sorts of nutritional foods. I feel like I’ve gained more weight instead.”
Lu Man even pinched her own cheeks bitterly. It seemed like she really did become chubbier.
Xia Qingwei smiled, her eyes squinting in glee. “I can rest assured when Xiao Han is around.”
“Mom, you’re only talking about me. Don’t you have anything that you want to tell me?”
For once Xia Qingwei appeared a little sheepish. “That… I was too anxious too. I can’t just always let them ruin your future.”
“I was just worried since you were alone in City B. What if Lu Qiyuan’s sadness had turned into craziness and he came looking for trouble? Without me around, I can’t look out for you. In the future, even if you want to torment them, you should still wait until I’m in City B with you.”
Xia Qingwei smiled and said, “With Xiao Han around, what’s there to worry about? When you weren’t around, Xiao Han would come visit me at home every week. If he got too busy with his work and couldn’t make time to visit, he would get Zhou Cheng and Xu Hui to come protect me too. Even if Lu Qiyuan really wanted to come and stir up trouble, he wouldn’t be able to get close either. Oh right, I’ve heard from Xiao Han that you decided to learn acting professionally.”
