I woke up to find I have a child - Chapter 36
Han Feixu still couldn’t figure out what happened. Did the conflicts between them reach a point where there was no affection left, or did something else happen that day that made her unable to bear it? Otherwise, how could she mention divorce to Ye Mingxin on her birthday?
Yiyi’s answers were indecipherable and it was difficult for her to analyze any relevant information out of it. Han Feixu pondered on the matter. She could ask Ye Mingxin, but she was afraid to.
After all, Ye Mingxin refused to mention anything about the past and cleverly avoided the topic when it was brought up. There was just no chance for Han Feixu to ask. Originally, Han Feixu had half given up on figuring out what happened in the past, but now that she has learned that they made a deal to divorce on Ye Mingxin’s birthday and with Ye Mingxin being so secretive about the whole matter, she is starting to care again.
She feels a little bit afraid. Afraid that the reason why their marriage embarked on the path of doom was a reason she could not accept.
Han Feixu went back to her room and thought about it all night. She didn’t even eat dinner.
At 7 o’clock the next morning, Yan Yuerong and Ye Junyuan arrived at their house. Han Feixu came down with a pair of dark eye bags underneath her eyes, “Mom, Dad, good morning.” (T/N: Yan Yuerong and Ye Junyuan are Ye Mingxin’s parents and Yiyi’s grandparents)
They had already met before at a meal Ye Mingxin arranged last time. Ye Junyuan learned that Han Feixu had a sudden loss of memory and understood that this was the best time for his daughter to save her marriage with her wife, so he never mentioned the matter of inheritance. Even though he has already set his sights on making Yiyi his heir.
Yiyi flew down the stairs, and normally Han Feixu would scold her for running, but since the elders were present, she only glared at Yiyi. Yan Yuerong caught Yiyi in her arms, laughing so wide that people could see her wisdom teeth, “Ai! Yiyi likes Grandma the most, right?”
Yiyi placed her head on her grandmother’s shoulder and said softly, “Yes~”
Hearing this, Yan Yuerong laughed and gave her husband a triumphant look.
Ye Junyuan refused to admit defeat, poking Yiyi’s small face, and then stretched out his arms, “Give Grandpa a hug.”
Yiyi glanced at him and then turned away.
Ye Junyuan: “…”
Ahem, very good! Worthy of being the fourth successor candidate that he has personally chosen. With an aloof personality that regards money as dung, and a rich grandpa as a pool of that worthless dung. Indeed, the most suitable heir to the Ye Family!
At least, that’s what Ye Junyuan said in his heart to comfort himself. He had no choice, he had chosen four candidates in total, and this is the only one that hasn’t rejected him yet TAT
Of course, Yiyi didn’t refuse him because she wanted to inherit the business, but because she was too young to understand what she was refusing nor how to refuse it in the first place.
They were scheduled to depart at 8 o’clock and will arrive at their destination in 13 hours. This is the second time Yiyi has taken a plane. She was born in the United States, but didn’t leave Philadelphia often except for that one time her great aunt, Han Anni was married and Han Feixu took her to New York. Even then, they had driven there by car. Yiyi likes flying very much, and she has been so excited since yesterday not because of the trip but because she can fly on a plane again.
Children’s thinking is too difficult for the adults to understand = =
Han Feixu once again reminded Yiyi to be careful. She and Ye Mingxin watched Yiyi get in Grandpa’s car and didn’t leave until the car disappeared from their view.
In about ten minutes, they have to set off as well and film for the variety show today.
Han Feixu didn’t get enough sleep yesterday, and had no energy at all. Ye Mingxin’s gaze stayed for a few extra seconds on the eyebags underneath her eyes, “Couldn’t sleep, or did you stay up playing games again?
Recently, Han Feixu has become obsessed with a game called Honor of Kings and played at least a round or two anytime she had free time. Ye Mingxin took a sip of oolong tea, lowered her eyes, and said, “In Director Tian’s crew, there is a rule that anyone who plays Honor of Kings will be fined.”
Han Feixu: “….what if I play other games?”
Ye Mingxin put down her tea cup and recalled, “He doesn’t seem to care about other games. I heard that Director Tian’s youngest son has just entered 5th grade this year and is apparently obsessed with Honor of Kings. He is always asking Director Tian for money to buy heroes or runes. If the director doesn’t give him the money, the boy threatens him with blackmail. He says that he will report to his teacher that the director is abusing him and he will use the director’s famous reputation. Director Tian probably made the rule because of this.”
He can’t control his son, so he controls his crew instead. This was one way to satisfy his heart = =
Han Feixu yawned sullenly, “Then I will hand over the phone to Yuanyuan and let her take care of it for me.”
This topic has come to an end. Seeing that there was still some time, Ye Mingxin started up the conversation again, “The affiliation contract has been finalized. When are you going to officially establish your studio?”
“We’ve already figured out most of the hiring, now we just need to finish the paperwork. Liang-jie said it should be done sometime in early August.”
Early August is still some time away. Ye Mingxin took out her phone and scrolled through her contacts, “My father has a good relationship with Secretary Wang from the Industry and Commerce Bureau. I can give him a call and ask him to push the paperwork a little. It’s better if it can be finished early…”
Ye Mingxin looked up and found that Han Feixu was almost asleep. She shook her hand in front of Han Feixu’s face, “Little Xu? Little Xu!”
Han Feixu’s eyes were half-opened and then she snapped them shut. She lay her head into her arms that were placed on the table, her voice muffled as she spoke, “I heard what you said now let me sleep. We still have 7 minutes before we need to leave, right? Then let me sleep for 7 minutes.”
Ye Mingxin: “…..” It really is a race against time = =
Han Feixu has always been like this. Even if there are only three minutes left before she needs to get up, she will sleep those full three minutes.
Ye Mingxin watched the time and woke her up as soon as the seven minutes were up. They drove in the van, and Wei Xun followed behind in another car.
Ye Mingxin’s custom-made van had seats that could be converted into a bed. There were even blankets under each seat. Although the van may seem small on the outside, it is well-equipped with the essential necessities. Ye Mingxin had three vans in total, one she uses all the time, one for emergencies, and the one they are currently in that was never used before. Since it was never used, no one would recognize it, and no one would bother them.
In terms of appearance, this van looked similar to the many vans in the market. As long as you don’t look at the interior, you won’t find many differences.
When they arrived, Jiang Lingyan did not torture them like usual. Perhaps it’s because she finally gained a conscience or she didn’t have the time to set up any schemes. In any case, this time the game is rather simple, the topic being—improv. Han Feixu performed very well throughout the whole process, but Han Yiren performed even better than her. Improv tests the basic skills of an actor, and as someone who has only been an actress for a few days, Han Feixu is naturally slightly worse than her peers.
However, even if she does a little worse than the others, it wouldn’t matter. The format of the show makes it so the points even out across the different rounds and so doing worse here wouldn’t affect her final score. As long as she does better in future rounds, she should be fine. The only thing that did matter was guessing the plot right.
Before they started recording, Han Feixu spotted Yin Jiahe and Yu Tingxue in the distance. The two of them stood together but did not talk to each other. They both did their own things, glancing around at whatever caught their interest. Han Feixu didn’t walk up to say hello as she wanted to wait until after the recording started to talk. She hoped that Yin Jiahe is as friendly as she looks. Although, she always felt that she would somehow scare the woman away if she approached.
Once the recording started and the assistant director introduced the two new contestants, Han Fexiu’s eyes flew out of her head. Because one of the new contestants is coming straight towards her!
They must have mistook her for another person!
Yin Jiahe looked even better up close and in person than in the photos. She had this aura about her that allowed her to steal the spotlight and suppress all the other actors.
Han Feixu froze up at first and then turned her attention to the staff member, ‘Lin-mei’ who was using her phone to videotape Yin Jiahe. When another employee accidentally bumped into her, she almost dropped her phone and glared at her fellow co-worker, taking as much as three steps back.
Han Feixu returned her attention to Yin Jiahe and fell in a daze. The woman was now flashing a bright smile, blinding the eyes of everyone who landed on her.
Ye Mingxin’s title of ‘best-looking’ flickered for a moment. If it weren’t for the fact that Ye Mingxin’s image has buried itself into Han Feixu’s heart and Han Feixu had some good impression of her, Yin Jiahe would probably have become Han Feixu’s new idol.
Han Feixu suddenly thought of the idiom ‘Her beauty can cause the downfall of a country’* as she gazed upon Yin Jiahe’s face. Then she thought of another idiom, ‘The enchanting consort that brings misfortune to a nation.’ (*T/N: 倾国倾城 and 祸国妖妃)
If Daji* was still alive, she’ll probably look like Yin Jiahe. (*T/N: Daji is a well-known beauty that caused the downfall of the Shang dynasty and is often depicted as a fox-spirit temptress)
Yin Jiahe’s beauty is recognized even in the entertainment circle. When it comes to beautiful female stars, the first that comes to mind is Yin Jiahe. There are many who are also beautiful, but their beauty is not as bright and fierce as hers. Yin Jiahe’s beauty is one that is unforgettable. One that can not be forgotten for an entire lifetime.
Her face is her biggest aspect, but also her least favorite. Due to her beauty, she was almost contracted to become a porn star when she debuted. Yin Jiahe had to work hard, climbing her way to the top step by step and performing in a lot of movies to prove her worth. Yet people could only remember her face. They thought of her only as a pretty vase, a moving doll, and believed she had no acting skills at all.
Although her acting skills are indeed mediocre, it wasn’t so bad that she deserved to be looked down upon by others.
Among the contestants here today, she only knew two of them and didn’t really have a friendship with those two people either. She instinctively wanted to frown at the gawking and dazed looks pointed her way, but she stopped when she saw Han Feixu looking at her the same way.
It doesn’t matter if the others looked at her like that, but why is Han Feixu doing the same???
Oh! Yin Jiahe nodded her head in understanding. Han Feixu is acting, ah, that must be it. Such a professional actress, to be able to start acting as soon as the camera started rolling.
In order to respect her colleague and fellow contestant, Yin Jiahe also pretended not to know her and devoted herself to the task at hand.
And so, believing that this must be the case, Yin Jiahe ignored Han Feixu for two consecutive days of filming.
After they had finished this week’s filming, Yin Jiahe finally approached Han Feixu and greeted her, “Hi, how have you been doing?”
Han Feixu is currently looking at the list of WeChat numbers Liang Zhu has shared with her. Liang Zhu had found her three more assistants, two administrative staff, one accountant, one makeup artist, four PR representatives, and four full-time stylists.
Liang Zhu said she would handle the others, while Han Feixu only needs to add the WeChat numbers of the makeup artist, the head stylist, and the head assistant. She was adding them one by one when Yin Jiahe suddenly came over and started talking to her.
Han Feixu raised her head and blankly stared at the beautiful woman for a long time. Then she finally reacted as she laughed nervously, “Haha, I’m fine, how about you?”
Yin Jiahe: “….”
What the fu*k? What the hell does she mean by hesitating for so long….she doesn’t remember me? Fu*k, she really doesn’t remember me?!! I’m so beautiful and good-looking, and she doesn’t remember me?!!
