Quick Transmigrating Second Female Lead's Counterattack Chapter 143
The test began the moment they walked onto the training grounds. Auditions were a lie. This was a large period epic. There were many scenes that were going to be filmed at the military bases and required actors to train alongside military soldiers. The extras in the drama were all real soldiers. They were prepared to go all out to portray the founding of their country. If certain actors were unwilling to bear hardships, then they will be rejected early on. In the communications room, Lu QianYu and a group of staffers watched the scene at the training grounds along with a few captains and majors from the military.
Lu JingSheng huddled in a corner, silently thanking his stars. Luckily, he had trained in the military before. Or else, he would have been forced to do the same thing by his brother. Was it really a good idea to have all those people be stuck outside?
Lu QianYu watched a certain spot on the screen, his eyes filled with satisfaction. As expected of the person that he had always had a good impression of. She was the only one that was suited to play Gu XiCi. This was a story that would recount an entire generation. It was the story of a generation of military soldiers made up of civilians that all shared the common goal of resisting the invasion of foreign forces and protecting their country in hopes that it could become a powerful nation of its own. The founding of the nation rose up from the blood and corpses of the lives sacrificed. But how many people still remembered those heroes from before? They had used their blood and sweat to build the unbreakable city walls of today.
All of the ordinary faces of those citizens all took part in these extraordinary deeds. This was a story about real history, and the main characters of their drama truly existed. The 80th anniversary of the founding of their country held deep profound significance.
“Lu QianYu, what are you waiting for?” The Major of the 8th Army Garrison watched the screen frowning and asked Lu QianYu harshly. This damn fool didn’t tell him his little sister was here too. If he had known, there’s no way he would have allowed his little sister to burn out there in this heat for so long.
Lu QianYu turned towards the man that had just spoken. He was a handsome man with well-defined features and a lean physique. Especially his wild eyes. On his bronze skin, his eyes shined sharply and illuminated his arrogant air.
“ZhengMao, I know you care for MiMi. But this is something that she needs to experience. Or else, how is she going to bear with the rest of filming? Do you understand?” How could he not hurt for her too? He liked MiMi too. Although it seemed like MiMi didn’t recognize him…
That wouldn’t do. When filming starts, he’ll definitely go complain to MiMi for forgetting him.
Ni ZhengMao looked at Lu QianYu with disgust, “Are you stupid? My little sister was born in Ni family. How could this be difficult for her? She started training in our family early on.” Even though their family liked to protect his little sister, they still understood when to be strict. She had undergone special training starting at age 8 continuously until 13. It was also at age 13 when his little sister met that bastard. If he knew that bastard would try to steal his little sister away, he would have made his sister train for an additional year.
Ever since he received FengHua’s phone call two days ago, ZhengMao had been in a constant state of unhappiness.
Lu QianYu awkwardly touched his nose. Would it be worse if he told him that he had forgotten about the training? Whatever, it was about time to end it anyways. He already knew which people could remain and which people he needed to reject.
As long as they were able to get through this month of training, they could officially begin filming by next month. He led the group out of the communications room and headed for the training grounds.
Ni ZhengMao ran ahead to get water for his sister. Standing outside for an hour on such a hot day could give someone heat stroke.
Those that had been cursing before immediately shut up after seeing the group of men in military outfits. They quickly hid their expressions from their faces so that others wouldn’t be able to discover even the shadows of their previous anger.
Lu QianYu stood in the middle and scanned over everyone. He raised his eyebrows and spoke indifferently. “There are two options for you: either leave or stay. Give me your answer in the next two minutes. If no one leaves within these two minutes, then I’ll take it as everyone chose to stay. Next to him, a captain pulled out a stopwatch to count down the time. The actresses that had been complaining now looked at each other. There was obvious hesitation on their faces. Everyone that came today were all considered strong in both popularity and skills. They technically didn’t need to be in this drama. However, the influence of this drama was huge. Since this drama had the support of the government, it would be broadcasting simultaneously on numerous television channels. An actress that acted in a government production would be able to have a very high acting price.
Two minutes passed by quickly. No one left.
XunMi stood leaning on the tree the whole time without making a sound. She was busy thinking about what should she ask her second brother to bring over. Based on how things were going, it looked like they were going to spend the night here tonight.
As expected, Lu QianYu revealed his plan. “Today, everyone can rest up. The instructors will bring you to your dorm. You can have people send in any necessities you will be needing but this place provides daily amenities and training suits. For the remainder of the month, we’ll be here for special training. Those that are able to bear with training will be allowed to stay. To those that cannot, we can only say sorry. Everyone should be clear what this show is about, so this measure of ability should not come as a surprise. My speech is done, everyone is now free to do what you need to do.” Lu QianYu didn’t bother with those that tried to come forth to speak with him. He headed straight to the person standing under the tree.
XunMi felt a shadow cover her so finally opened her eyes in confusion. A handsome man with medium length hair was standing in front of her and smiling.
She blinked her eyes, feeling a bit awkward. She didn’t recognize him and the original soul didn’t have any memories of him either.
“Mimi, you heartless child. You’ve forgotten about me.” The smile on Lu QianYu’s face stiffened. His eyes were saying ‘do you have a heart?’ while he glared at XunMi.
XunMi froze even more, completely confused.
“Uh, that, Director Lu. Do we know each other?” XunMi asked inquisitively. She really couldn’t remember. She had scanned thoroughly through the original soul’s memories but couldn’t find anything.
Lu QianYu nodded his head ferociously. “I even hugged you when you were young. You always smiled so adorably at me. You even said you would marry me when you grew up!”
My god! XunMi’s head could only think of WTFWTFWTF right now. She definitely did not say that. Original soul, you cheat! When did you seduce this man?
“Lu QianYu, you bastard! Don’t bully my sister.” When Ni ZhengMao came back with water, he saw a shocked little sister.
