The Master of Metaphysics is The Movie Queen – Chapter 57

TMMTMQ – Chapter 57

For the iron railing screw, no one thought it would be done by a cleaning staff. When this cleaning staff was found, he was bewildered. The police found out after some questioning that Sun Panqiao deliberately looked the staff and said that the crew would be filming on the stairs so he needed to loosen the screw. He could tighten them again the next morning.

Sun Panqiao also told the cleaning staff that if he did it well, he could come to the crew to work. When the cleaning staff heard this, he didn’t really care why anymore. After all, working in a film crew would be much better than working in a hotel. So he directly loosened the screw.

Soon there were only Song Anxiang, Fang Jiayue and Gong Qingyao left in the room. Fang Jiayue was in a depressed mood. She still didn't understand why Xiaoqing would betray her. The more she thought about it, the more uncomfortable she felt. Finally, she couldn't help it, and tears flowed down. "You think, why did Xiaoqing do this?" Compared with Xiaoqing's betrayal, what Sun Panqiao did was not worth mentioning.

Song Anxiang shook his head, Fang Jiayue treated people kindly, so it shouldn't cause any unpleasantness in getting along with Xiaoqing.

Gong Qingyao said, "She just saw herself in Sun Panqiao."

Fang Jiayue was stunned when she heard this. Yes, Xiaoqing once said that she had a childhood friend. The two entered the showbiz together, but the friend had now become an agent, and she was just an assistant. After she heard that, Fang Jiayue mentioned it to the company. Originally after the filming of this drama ended, the company would set up an assessment. If Xiaoqing passed, she would be able to become an agent. Fang Jiayue just didn't expect Xiaoqing to make a mistake before they got that far. Fang Jiayue did not expect relationship between people to be so fragile.

Song Anxiang was a little awkward. But this was the reality of the world, nothing could be done. "It's already too late, let’s go back and rest." He also arranged for someone to book a room for Gong Qingyao.

The room card was quickly given, and Song Anxiang handed it to Gong Qingyao, "Tomorrow morning let’s have breakfast in the restaurant." Although he had a lot of things to ask Gong Qingyao, he knew that it was not the right time at this moment.

Gong Qingyao took the room card, thanked Song Anxiang, and went to rest.

On the next morning, Gong Qingyao went to the restaurant to eat after her practice. Not long after sitting down, Fang Jiayue also came over. 

Even with a layer of foundation, there were still bruises on Fang Jiayue’s eyes. She must have come to bed late last night. She sat in front of Gong Qingyao, "Thank you for yesterday."

"No need." Gong Qingyao said.

Fang Jiayue took a bite of noodles, "Did you foresee it before?"

Gong Qingyao admitted, "I saw it when filming in the afternoon."

Fang Jiayue had no doubt. She couldn't sleep last night, so she searched about Gong Qingyao online. She found that the other party was actually a metaphysical master on Weibo. After reading the comments, she found that the other party seemed to be really capable. "No wonder the look in your eyes at that time almost scared me to death." Fang Jiayue thought it was Gong Qingyao’s act, she didn't expect it to be true.

"If it's acting, it would not be a big problem." Gong Qingyao looked up and said seriously.

Fang Jiayue laughed, and then began to talk about acting skills with Gong Qingyao. However, it was mainly Fang Jiayue talked and Gong Qingyao listened. Fang Jiayue really loved performing arts industry, and had accumulated many experiences over the years. Fang Jiayue unreservedly told Gong Qingyao the knowledge points she had comprehended.

So it was ten o'clock after they finished the meal, and Gong Qingyao received a lot of epiphany, "Thank you for telling me this."

"Compared to your life-saving grace, this is nothing." Fang Jiayue said.

"Don't you need to film in the morning?" Gong Qingyao asked.

"Director Song gave me a half-day vacation, so I will shoot again in the afternoon." Fang Jiayue said. But right now, Fang Jiayue should also go to apply make-up. 

Gong Qingyao said goodbye to Fang Jiayue and returned to the capital. Ai Xiaoyun had contacted the company and Gong Qingyao could start training tomorrow.

The last few days were very busy, so Gong Qingyao didn’t predict the whereabouts of the children for Children Go Home, so taking advantage of this free time, Gong Qingyao planned to tell the whereabouts of 500 children. When the first batch of lists was sent, Qin Ze called over immediately.

Qin Ze knew Gong Qingyao’s abilities and knew that she would not be hurt, but he was still worried. After seeing the list Gong Qingyao posted, Qin Ze dialed Gong Qingyao’s phone in no time, "Didn’t you go to retreat these last few days?"

"Yeah." Gong Qingyao said, "The rest of the list will be passed on to you later."

"Didn't we agreed on thirty calculations per day?" Qin Ze said.

"There were no calculations for the past few days, and the next few days I may not have much time also." Gong Qingyao said. This acting was not an easy task, Gong Qingyao was worried that she would not have enough time during filming.

"Then you pay more attention to rest." Qin Ze said.

After Gong Qingyao sent out two hundred calculations, the door of the house rang. Gong Qingyao saw Qin Ze in front of the door. 

Qin Ze shook the phone on his left hand and then lifted his right hand, "Dinner first then continue calculate." Although the two hadn’t been acquainted for long, Qin Ze knew that Gong Qingyao would definitely not remember to eat when she was busy.

Gong Qingyao realized that Qin Ze had food in his hands.

Qin Ze walked directly into the house, "This is the snack I bought."

Gong Qingyao's house was very clean, but this was the first time Qin Ze had entered the house, and it was not much different from what he imagined. Although it was simple, fortunately, it was comfortable. Qin Ze put the bag on the table, and then took out the food one by one. The fragrance immediately emanated, and Gong Qingyao sat down opposite Qin Ze.

"This preserved egg and lean meat porridge is good." Qin Ze lifted the lid, and rich fragrance floated out. Qin Ze put a spoon on the porridge and handed the bowl to Gong Qingyao.

Gong Qingyao picked up the bowl and ate it one bite at a time. In addition to the lean meat porridge, Qin Ze also brought crispy pork bun (ròu jiā mó) and sweet-scented osmanthus cakes. The pork bun was not so crispy anymore, maybe because it sat for a while on the way, but it was not bad. The meat was fat and thin, and very fragrant. In addition, the sweet-scented osmanthus cake was served after the bun. In one bit, the fragrance spread on the mouth.

Osmanthus Cakes

After a bowl of porridge, half pork bun and one osmanthus cake, Gong Qingyao really couldn't eat anymore, so she picked up her phone on the side and continued to calculate.

Qin Ze didn't bother Gong Qingyao. After eating, he began to clean up the table, put garbage in bags and then went out to throw it away. When he went out, Qin Ze deliberately left a gap in the door to avoid the need to call Gong Qingyao to open the door again when he got back later. After sometime, Qin Ze returned. This time he was carrying a large bag of things in his hand. 

Gong Qingyao concentrated on calculating the whereabouts of the children, and didn't pay attention on what Qin Ze was doing. After Gong Qingyao calculated a list full, she looked up and found that Qin Ze was stuffing the refrigerator.

Qin Ze saw Gong Qingyao looking over and said, "I bought some milk. If you wake up in the morning, you can drink a glass of milk. The milk shelf life is half a year, so don’t be afraid to drink it." Qin Ze put the last bottle of milk in, "I also bought some eggs. Breakfast with eggs and milk is nutritious and healthy." The rest were random other food.

"Thank you." Gong Qingyao said.

"Don’t be polite." Qin Ze finished packing the plastic bag and said again, "You can continue your calculation and don’t worry." 

It wasn't until ten o'clock in the evening that Gong Qingyao finished calculating 500 children, and Qin Ze received the list. After putting Gong Qingyao’s cell phone aside, he looked disapprovingly, "Now, you must go to sleep."

Gong Qingyao rubbed her sore eyes, ran some profound energy to her lower body, and immediately felt a lot more comfortable. In fact, even though Qin Ze didn't say anything, she didn't plan to continue the calculation, "Okay." 

After Gong Qingyao returned to the bedroom, Qin Ze closed the door and left.

Not long after Qin Ze left, Gong Qingyao's phone notification rang, and it said, [November 23, Fang Jiayue transfered five hundred thousand yuan to your bank X account.] 

The next day, Ai Xiaoyun picked up Gong Qingyao early in the morning to go to the company.

There was a dedicated training room on the top floor of Liren Entertainment. The training would be conducted here. Actually, the company’s training was for newly signed artists. Although Gong Qingyao was not newly signed, but her acting skills and newly signed artists had no difference.

On the way to the training room, Ai Xiaoyun took out the training schedule, "This training camp lasts for one month. Of course, you can ask for leave when you need to go to the crew" After that, Ai Xiaoyun added another sentence, "Come on."

Gong Qingyao looked at the schedule. Got up at 6:30 in the morning and ran two kilometers on treadmill. Breakfast time was from 7 to 8. The first class started at 8 and continued until 12 noon. The breaks on the 4 hour class did not add up to more than twenty minutes. After two-hour break at noon, the class continued from two to six in the afternoon. One hour for dinner in the middle and then continued again from 7 to 8 in the evening.

The schedule was really tight, Gong Qingyao thought. Fortunately, yesterday she calculated 500 children.

"It’ll be overwhelming at the beginning, so just take your time." Ai Xiaoyun said, "Today is the first day of training, so basically just some introduction. From tomorrow on, it won’t be so relaxed." When Gong Qingyao came in, the company didn’t have such training. Within the past few years, Liren had been doing a lot better, so the basic training was naturally more formal.

When the two arrived at the training room, they found that there were already a dozen people waiting. To be precise, a dozen people were surrounding one little girl. When the group saw Ai Xiaoyun bringing a person over, they began to whisper.

Ai Xiaoyun retracted his gaze and looked at Gong Qingyao, "Next time, you have to rely on yourself."

Gong Qingyao nodded.

"OK, then I'll go down first, call me if something happens." Ai Xiaoyun waved to Gong Qingyao, and then went downstairs.

Seeing Ai Xiaoyun left, someone asked, "Are you Gong Qingyao?"

Gong Qingyao nodded slightly, and then she found an empty seat to sit down.

"Wow, it's really Gong Qingyao." A few enthusiastic girls approached directly, "Didn't you already signed a contract for several years, why are you still here for training?"

Gong Qingyao explained, "I wasn’t good in acting."

"But I heard that you were currently filming ‘The Legend of the Song Dynasty’" Someone said. 

There were not many actors in Liren Entertainment and a single agent handled many artists, so there were few resources. It was not surprising that others knew what schedule someone received.

Gong Qingyao said, "Yes."

"I'm so envious, you can film drama so soon." 

"Yes, I want to make a TV too."

When everyone was discussing, the little girl who was surrounded before said, "What is filming drama? The important thing is to be able to win the female lead role."
