Quick Transmigrating Second Female Lead's Counterattack Chapter 144
This Lu QianYu was also a bastard. Anyone that coveted his little sister was a bad person.
XunMi perked up hearing a familiar voice. “Big brother!” She jumped to her feet and ran into her brother’s arms. She gave Ni ZhengMao a big teddy bear hug and sighed happily.
Ni ZhengMao patted his little sister’s head and handed the water bottle in his hands to her. “Drink some water. You must be tired from standing here for so long. I’ll take you to rest up.” He started pulling her away when he remembered something and came to a halt. He pointed at Lu QianYu and spoke to XunMi, “Little sister, that’s a bastard right there. Don’t bother with him, there’s something wrong with his brain.”
“God damn it! Ni ZhengMao, you’re the one with a nonfunctioning brain.” Lu QianYu exploded. He knew that he and the two Ni brothers were never meant to get along.
“Stop right there! Explain yourself before you leave.” He jumped in front of Ni ZhengMao to stop him.
But Siscon Ni ZhengMao barely spared Lu QianYu a glance before walking around him.
“Big brother, is this okay? Director Lu-” XunMi worriedly looked back at the exploding dragon Lu QianYu, her heart squeezing. Why didn’t she know before that Director Lu was so…lively? But his words about marrying him really wasn’t comfortable to the ears.
Ni ZhengMao smoothed out XunMi’s hair. “Don’t think about him. He’s always like this, he’ll be fine after he rests for a few minutes. What do you need? Get FengHua to get it for you. If there’s anything that happens this month, come find me. Got it?”
He first brought her to his own office to get familiar with the route before sending her to the dorms. The conditions inside a military camp were naturally not luxurious. Each room had about eight beds. Although there was only a handful of actresses, they still were expected to squeeze together.
There were less men, as Lu QianYu already knew he was going to use some of the military soldiers themselves. In total, there were about 30 non-military members on the training grounds.
Tang Guo’er and Tang XuXia exchanged a few words when they bumped into each other and then left. The military requested that only actors could remain on the grounds. Other personnel were not allowed to stay.
“Queen Ni, we truly are fated; we meet again.” Bai QianWei walked over carrying a pot. Her face stiffened for a second before she adjusted her expression. She smiled and greeted XunMi.
XunMi’s expression didn’t change after seeing Bai QianWei, but the estranged look she gave was still obvious.
“Miss Bai.” She responded. She then turned to begin preparing her bed. The bed she chose was the one closest to the window.
Bai QianWei glared at the person with her back turned to her. She stopped by a bed near the door and also began tidying her bed. When the rest of the actresses came in, they all looked back and forth at the two of them. They all eventually went to greet XunMi.
Of course, this was a good opportunity to form a connection with a true A-lister. She wasn’t just an acting queen. Now, she was also Ou Corporation’s chairman’s fiancée. If she was willing to extend her hand in aid, they would be able to walk the road to success peacefully.
XunMi could also tell what they were doing but didn’t condemn their actions. This was the way society worked. If you weren’t useful, no one would try to network with you.
“Queen Ni, hello! I’m Jian Xi.” Jian Xi stepped forward after the other girls fnished their introductions. She wore a simple short sleeve shirt and blue jeans, giving off a clean and sunny feeling.
There were never a deficit of pretty ladies in the entertainment field. In a field of beauties, the woman in front of her could only be considered bright and cute. But her clear eyes were large and full of life, adding a sense of uniqueness to her otherwise ordinary features.
“Hello, I’m Ni XunMi.” XunMi smiled and nodded in return. This girl was similar in personality to Qin SiYu. They were very outgoing and friendly, without a sense of scheming. Jian Xi was actually a bit nervous. She really liked Queen Ni’s acting in When You Return, which made her heart clench. That was a story of one sided love. It was very moving and was critically acclaimed. It was also that movie that earned XunMi her Best New Actress award and allowed her to become popular enough to be an A-lister. Then, she went abroad and gained a Venice award for the fantasy epic Holy Light. She was always her idol, who had climbed up and up using her own talent.
“As long as you’re determined, you can too. Believe in yourself. Fighting!” XunMi could clearly sense her yearning. That kind of yearning made her feel a bit shaken. Some memories that she had never thought of suddenly rose up.
After a couple of hundred years, she had almost completely forgotten about orphanage life. As expected, happiness was able to wipe out sadness and bitterness.
Jian Xi perked up, and looked up at XunMi. “Really? Do you think I can?”
“Don’t you already have the answer? With determination and will.” XunMi patted Jian Xi’s shoulder, encouraging and affirming her words. This child had a very open personality but was just a little sensitive. After bonding, the two began strolling around the giant training camp they would be staying at for the next month.
There was a slowly moving river and a lush green forest. XunMi could tell that many people were going to leave here with trauma. Luckily, she has cultivated a strong soul. Every time she traveled to a new world, she would use her spiritual power to first nourish her body so that it would be ready to deal with her mission.
Bai QianWei stayed in the shadows observing XunMi. She had been uneasy ever since seeing how Director Lu treated her. Afterwards, she saw a very tall man doting on her, further deepening her hatred.
She also didn’t know why she hated XunMi so much, but she just felt that Ni XunMi would steal away everything she had. The feeling hadn’t been this strong at the television station but it grew ever since that person left her without the slightest hesitation. Since then, she knew that there were some things that she could only depend on herself for. But she couldn’t let go of an opportunity to attack XunMi. This woman had just publicized her relationship with that person but was now here hugging another man intimately. She was interested to see what would happen if this news got out.
She secretly took a few more pictures. She prepared to find a good time to destroy XunMi’s reputation.
“Mi, aren’t you worried something would happen?” Jian Xi had gotten familiar with XunMi over the course of the afternoon and began calling her by her nickname. She also knew about all of Bai QianWei’s hidden movements. Her father was the chief of police. Growing up with him helped her cultivate a strong sense of intuition. Her father had originally wanted her to be a policeman like him, but she fell in love with acting. Because of this, the two had gotten a lot of arguments.
She wanted to create achievements to show her father that this was no longer an era where acting was looked down upon. An actor could also gain the approval of the public. Ni XunMi was the best example.
