Episode 51

(I Need your Help with Something)

“…” To his dismay, Lu Man asked, “Did you have your breakfast?”

“Auntie He sent breakfast to the office, and I ate a little.” For some unknown reason, under Lu Man’s stern gaze, Han Zhuoli was a little meek.

“How little is a little?” Lu Man asked as she narrowed her eyes.

Han Zhuoli: “…”

“I’m so furious, you’re really going to be the death of me.” Although enraged, Lu Man was helpless and could only glare at him. “Stay here and have a good rest, I’ll go and make some porridge for you. Once you eat something, it will be easier for you to take your medicine.”

Han Zhuoli asked blissfully, “Will you be cooking it?”

“Yeah.” Lu Man nodded.

Han Zhuoli sure was elated.

Soon, Lu Man headed downstairs and all this while, Butler Xiao Wang and Auntie He were waiting there.

Once Lu Man appeared, both of them turned to look at Lu Man.

Lu Man was a little stressed out by their passionate gaze. “Butler Xiao Wang, Auntie He.”

“You know me?” Butler Xiao Wang asked in surprise.

Lu Man nodded and with a smile on her face, she said, “Han Zhuofeng and Zheng Tianming have mentioned you before. However, I just don’t know why you are called Butler Xiao 1 Wang? Is it because you have the same family name as Butler Wang and so you didn’t want people to be confused between you two?”

Auntie He stifled a laugh and smiled. “He’s Butler Wang’s son. Butler Wang works for the Old Master and Old Madam Han in the old mansion, so Butler Xiao Wang came here to work for Young Master Han.”

“That’s right. If there’s anything you need, just let me know.” Auntie He gleefully pulled Lu Man over. “You don’t have to stand on ceremony with us, after all, this is your home.”

Lu Man was a little suspicious. What does Han Zhuoli usually say to them about her?

“Zhuoli didn’t eat much of the breakfast you had sent to him in the morning. So, I want to prepare some porridge for him, it would be better for him to take his medicine after having some food,” Lu Man explained.

“Just give me some time and I will have it prepared.” Auntie He smiled, grinning from ear-to-ear.

Butler Xiao Wang pulled her aside. “Sir clearly wants to eat the porridge cooked by Lu Man, why are you trying to step into this?”

“Oh right, right, right! I didn’t realise it at all.” Auntie He lightly patted her head and pulled Lu Man. “Come come, I’ll bring you to the kitchen.”

Auntie He brought Lu Man into the kitchen and told her where the ingredients, seasonings, etc were placed.

“If there’s anything else you need, feel free to tell me.” After Auntie He spoke, she didn’t continue disturbing Lu Man.

While Lu Man was cooking porridge, her cell phone suddenly rang.

Taking out the cell phone from her pocket, Lu Man was surprised to see Sun Yiwu calling her.

Lu Man then quickly answered the call. “Director Sun?”

“Hey Lu Man, it’s me,” Sun Yiwu said, laughing. “I heard that you’ve started school? How is it? Have you gotten used to it?”

“It’s not bad,” Lu Man said as lowered the fire on the stove, “After having some proper, systematic educational lessons at schools, I feel that there is more and more to learn about performance. The more I study, the more I realize that there are so many things that I didn’t know. With a teacher’s guidance and teaching, I feel different from being just like a wild grass.”

“True.” Sun Yiwu expressed his agreement and advised, “Don’t make assumptions just because these past few years all the people graduating from National Film Academy are beautiful and have high popularity, outshining all other students. In fact, a film academy will always be an educational institution, the instructor’s skills are actually completely on-par with theatre academies and the professors there are also rather professional.”

“Right.” Lu Man was surprised to know that Sun Yiwu knew that she gave up on Drama Academy and changed to Film Academy at the last minute.

“I have called you right now because there’s something I need your help with. However, I’m not forcing you to agree, you can consider it and see how it goes,” Sun Yiwu explained his reasons for calling out of the blue.

“What’s the matter?” Lu Man asked.

“I have a close friend, a younger bro, Ji Cheng, do you know?”

“I know. He’s a very famous Wushu celebrity.” Lu Man nodded.

“That’s right. He’s currently filming a movie called ‘Red Tiger’. He was originally an actor, so this is his first time as a director. He is a newbie when it comes to directing, so the investors don’t really have much confidence in him, and thus he doesn’t have much investments. Therefore, he tries to scrimp and save as much as he can and plan to spend all his money on production. Also, most probably he won’t hire any bigshot celebrities.”
