TMMTMQ – Chapter 94
In the first episode, Fairy Lanyun played by Gong Qingyao also appeared. Qiu Yuan was very happy when she saw this scene. Tang Jing was always NG when filming this scene. In the end, she couldn't film the front view so the director could only compromised by filming their back view. But even if only looking at the back view, her Sister Yao looked like a fairy descending to the earth.
After watching one episode, Qiu Yuan happily went to Weibo. She believed that there must be a lot of praise on the internet. Tonight Gong Qingyao was reading the script for ‘Yi Yao’. Lu Qianqian felt that it was boring for a ghost to watch the play alone, so she floated to Qiu Yuan and stood behind Qiu Yuan to watch together.
Seeing Qiu Yuan went to Weibo, Lu Qianqian nodded silently. This Qiu Yuan was quite good.
Qiu Yuan scanned Weibo, and Lu Qianqian stood behind her, staring at the screen intently. One person, one ghost saw many netizens had commented.
[Oh, Fairy Lanyun is so beautiful.]
[Just now, I checked Baidu. The Fairy Lanyun is played by Gong Qingyao. I turn into fans.]
[Wait for me, I will join Gong Qingyao's fan army.]
[My family is cold and elegant, so handsome, ah no, Fairy Lanyun is so beautiful.]
Qiu Yuan was very happy seeing these comments, but after half an hour her happiness dissipated, Qiu Yuan's face changed because some other comments appeared.
[Is this acting considered good? Didn't you find that Gong Qingyao has facial paralysis from beginning to end?]
[This acting really embarrassed me, it's completely pretending to be cold.]
[It's really embarrassing to try to hold my laugh.]
After seeing these comments, Qiu Yuan quickly discovered that most of these comments were posted on newly applied Weibo accounts. Qiu Yuan guessed who had invited the navy.
Lu Qianqian was also very angry on the side, and she wanted to help handle this. But Qiu Yuan, who often used the Internet, also knew how to find the pattern. After a while, Qiu Yuan found out the clues. She was sure that these navy was from Tang Jing!
Qiu Yuan suddenly became angry. There were a lot of things happened in the crew, but she didn't expect that after the filming was done, Tang Jing still did such a horrible thing.
Lu Qianqian also noticed this and floated directly upstairs. But halfway she thought that even if she told Gong Qingyao this, Gong Qingyao would not care. Lu Qianqian stayed half downstairs and half upstairs.
Suddenly, Lu Qianqian thought of a way, and then she floated back to Qiu Yuan's room. After Qiu Yuan fell asleep, Lu Qianqian made a gesture. Qiu Yuan suddenly frowned and then smiled in her sleep.
On the next day, the filming continued.
Early in the morning, Gong Qingyao put on makeup and came to the filming location. Whenever there were crew members on the road, they would happily call her Sister Yao. In fact, the crew also felt that Gong Qingyao was a very cold person at the beginning. But after getting along for a while, they found that Gong Qingyao looked indifferent, but she was very nice.
For the newcomers, Gong Qingyao was also willing help. Whenever they didn't understand something, Gong Qingyao would patiently teach them. As for the problem on metaphysics knowledge, Gong Qingyao was even more fluent.
In short, whenever there was any question, as long as Gong Qingyao knew, she would answer. With this, after a long time, everyone knew that Gong Qingyao was a good actor.
"72nd scene first take, action!"
Early in the morning, Yi Yao came to the foot of the overpass. Old Zhang and several others also came. Yesterday, Gong Qingyao’s words shocked them, and at the same time they were a little embarrassed. But what could be done? They had lived like this for a long time, and they still needed to make a living.
Old Zhang was the only one of the four who really understood some metaphysics. He started to learn metaphysics from childhood because of his interest. Later he began to try fortune-telling. At the beginning, he still followed his heart. After a long time, he was more or less tainted by the others.
Yi Yao sat there calmly. After she came, Old Zhang and the others smiled at Yi Yao a little embarrassedly.
The whole day passed, and the four of them had no business. Everyone was going to pack and leave, but the other saw that Yi Yao was not moving.
Old Zhang asked, "Little girl not going?"
Yi Yao said, "No hurry."
She seemed to be waiting for someone. So when Old Zhang heard this, he stopped packing his things and sat where he was. When Old Li and the others saw this, they also stayed and waited with Yi Yao. However, an hour passed, let alone people, not even a shadow came.
Yi Yao was still sitting in her place, looking relaxed.
Seeing that it was late, Old Li, Old Wu, and Old Ren decided to leave first, "Old Zhang, you don't leave?"
Zhang Lao said, "You all go first, and I will wait a bit more."
"OK then. We will go back first." Old Li and others said.
Just half an hour after the three left, the young man who came yesterday finally arrived. His head was wrapped in gauze, one of his eyes was completely closed, and his arm was also in plaster.
He turned into this within one night, and Old Zhang looked dumbfounded, this, this was more than a disaster of blood and light.
On the side, Yi Yao looked indifferent, without even lifting her head she said, "Finally he came." Everything was already known.
"Did you know it a long time ago?" The young man asked, touching the wound on his face while speaking, while grimacing in pain. What made him even more uncomfortable was that when he went back yesterday, he found that his good brother was on the same bed with the goddess he had been chasing. When the brother saw him coming, not only was he not embarrassed, but he gave a passionate interpretation.
The young man had always asked his good brother to help bridge connection with the goddess. What was good and what was most popular nowadays, he bought everything and asked the brother to give them to the goddess. However, the goddess left him and turned into his brother.
Through this, the young man was able to see a person clearly, but he didn't expect that after he went out, a group of people greeted him, beat him violently, and drove him away from the gang.
The young man's name was Hu Qi. He was a member of a famous gang in City A. He was called the third child because he was ranked third.
The fourth-ranked person had long been upset with him. This time, the fourth joined forces with the others to expel Hu Qi directly. Hu Qi was not weak, so after a fight with a large group of people, although he was injured, the opponents also didn't manage to wipe him completely.
Hu Qi finally fainted due to lack of physical strength after running away from his opponents. After staying in the hospital for a day, he felt better. In the afternoon while the medical staff were changing shifts, he ran out of his ward and found Yi Yao under the overpass.
"So what?" Yi Yao said.
"Then why didn’t you…" Why didn't you remind me? Hu Qi didn’t finish his words. The little girl had clearly reminded him, he just didn't believe it at the time, so how could he blame her now?
"How can life always be smooth sailing?" Yi Yao said.
"You don't understand." Hu Qi said, his love, friendship, and career disappeared in one night. There was no one more miserable than him.
"There will be light at the end of the tunnel." After Yi Yao finished speaking, he picked up the sign on his booth and left. (TN: 柳暗花明/liǔ àn huā míng (idiom) = light at the end of the tunnel.)
Old Zhang silently packed up his things and left, leaving Hu Qi standing alone in a daze.
"Pass!" Qu Yi shouted.
During the filming, as long as the scene involved Gong Qingyao, they were almost all one-off, even if there was NG, it was because of the other actors. This was not the point, the point was that Gong Qingyao really understood metaphysics.
"The filming is over. The night filming will begin at seven o'clock in the evening." Qu Yi announced.
Hearing this, Gong Qingyao walked over, "For the evening, it is recommended that the director cancel the filming." After speaking, she went to the restaurant with Qiu Yuan.
The scene at night didn’t involve Gong Qingyao, so Qu Yi was shocked when he heard this.
Director Gao said, "Why should we cancel it? Isn't everything has been prepared?" Although Gong Qingyao's favorability in everyone's mind had been rising during this period, Director Gao still couldn't get used to Gong Qingyao’s attitude.
Qu Yi also felt that everything was good. Why should it be cancelled? But then he remembered the last time Gong Qingyao said that the opening ceremony time should be changed. It was because of the change that they were not affected by the heavy rain. So Qu Yi thought a bit longer and decided, "The evening filming is cancelled."
Director Gao glanced at Qu Yi, not understanding why Qu Yi believed in Gong Qingyao so much. She said that it should be canceled and it was canceled. He felt even more uncomfortable.
During the meal, Director Gao sat next to Qu Yi, "Old Qu, The venue for the evening filming has been booked for tonight. If we cancel, and we will have to book again later, which means more funds."
Qu Yi nodded, the crew didn’t have much money left, and the place was indeed not cheap to rent.
Seeing that Qu Yi's mind was a little hesitant, Director Gao continued, "We didn't have much sponsor, so it's still unknown whether we can finish the filming if spend carelessly. Do you want the filming to stop halfway?" This script was Qu Yi longest work.
Qu Yi was silent. He had to say what Gao said had poked him right in his heart.
"I think nothing should happen tonight, so we might as well continue filming." Gao said.
Qu Yi was still silent.
"What? Are you really afraid of accidents? Just in the crew, what can happen?" Gao said, "Look outside, the weather is very good, it will be fine."
Qu Yi finally decided to continue filming at night.
Gong Qingyao lied in bed and read her script. There was a lot of metaphysical knowledge in the script, and Gong Qingyao had revised some, but she still thought it could be better. Most modern people didn’t understand classical Chinese and only understand the simplified characters. She needed to think on how to explain in plain language to everyone what metaphysics was not a lie.
While Gong Qingyao was studying the script, Qu Yi led a group of people to continue filming the night scene. But then he saw the originally well-built set suddenly fell apart, and then the venue fell into chaos.
Soon the sound of an ambulance could be heard from the hotel. Gong Qingyao glanced out the window and shook her head. She had reminded the other party, if the other party didn't care, she could only give up.
Lu Qianqian knew all of this, and she said, "They don't even listen to what Master said. I really don't know what they were thinking."
Qu Yi looked at the miserable situation at the scene and thought of Gong Qingyao's words before leaving in the afternoon. At this moment, the blood all over his body seemed to freeze. Could it be that Gong Qingyao really foresaw all this?
Director Gao who was standing at the back didn't expect that something would really happen during the nigh filming, and it was such a big thing. For a while, he didn't know how to react, and only two words "I’m finished" appeared in his heart.
If they didn’t film tonight, the crew would indeed lose up to hundreds of thousands for venue booking fee. But with the accident now, they didn’t even know how much the loss would be. This accident made the poor crew even worse!
The author has something to say:
Qiu Yuan: You deserve it.
Gong Qingyao: Don't say that, those actors are innocent.
