TMMTMQ – Chapter 96
When Qin Ze saw the two old people in the video, he was shocked and then fell silent. About ten minutes later, Qin Ze looked up, "Where are they?"
Qin Ze decided to go downstairs and take a look...
‘Legend of Yunxian’ was still running, but the episodes related to Yunyou will drop in ratings. Meanwhile, whenever Gong Qingyao appeared, the ratings would rise. In the end, the TV station had to cut out many Yunyou’s part from the following episodes.
Tang Jing's fans were dissatisfied, saying that the show was titled ‘Legend of Yunxian’, not ‘Legend of Lanyun’, but before they managed to start a riot, it was suppressed by other netizens.
At the same time, Tang Jing rarely appeared in front of the public, and the daily hot searches on Weibo were all about the Fairy Lanyun. Within a few days, Tang Jing's fans also ceased.
Qiu Yuan was happy and uncomfortable at the same time. The development of ‘Legend of Yunxian’ was good, but the filming of ‘Yi Yao’ was not so optimistic.
Qu Yi gathered everyone and said, "I'm very sorry, but I still have to tell everyone a piece of news." Qu Yi's face was heavy, everyone knew that this would be very bad news.
"We can't get any more sponsorship, the crew is completely out of money." Qu Yi fell silent after speaking. Even though he was ready to tell everyone about it, he could still feel his emotions fluctuated when he finally said it.
"But one third of the filming was finished, can't you just hold on to it?" someone asked.
Director Gao said, "Qu Yi already sold both his house and car." It's just that filming was too expensive. Selling the house and the car was just a drop in the bucket.
"Then what to do?" Someone asked. If they stop then everyone's hard work during this period of time would be wasted.
"I don’t need payment." Old Zhang's actor stood up and said. Since Gong Qingyao could play for zero pay, so could he.
Qu Yi shook his head. His pay was not high, and even if he forfeited his pay, it would be of little use.
"Neither do I!" Old Li's actor also stood up and said.
Everyone seemed to get the impression, so they all said that they didn't have to be paid.
Qu Yi nodded but then shook his head again, "Thank you very much, but the subsequent filming will cost more. We really can't go on filming, thank you for your support." If it weren't for the previous accident, the crew would probably be able to survive for a few more days. Qu Yi choked and said, "When I save up enough funds, I will invite everyone to come and shoot."
Everyone fell silent. Who knows if he could gather the actors? Who knows if he would be able to gather money again?
Gong Qingyao said, "How much money is needed?" All the funds in her hand add up to more than 10 million.
Qu Yidao, "A conservative estimate of 50 million." This didn’t include the money for post production.
"I'll give the crew 10 million first, and then we can talk about more when it is used up." Gong Qingyao said.
Qu Yi was immediately excited. 10 million yuan. If he stayed frugal, maybe that amount could support the crew until they got more sponsorship. In this case, there was no need to stop filming.
Meanwhile, what Gong Qingyao thought was, she would take advantage of this period of time to do fortune-telling around. She would earn a sum of money to invest in the crew.
Qu Yi finally accepted Gong Qingyao’s funds and took the initiative so that Gong Qingyao’s funds would be invested in the crew in the form of dividends, which means that Gong Qingyao would be one of the shareholders. In the future, if the crew made money, Gong Qingyao would also get dividends. Of course, if the crew didn't get any box office, Qu Yi also intended to return the 10 million to Gong Qingyao.
Director Gao offered to look for more sponsor, and most of the actors in the crew said that they would play in the show with zero pay. Qu Yi wrote down their names so that he could return the money to everyone when he had money in his hands in the future.
Ten million was quickly used up, and Qu Yi had to announce again that they would stop shooting. Gong Qingyao had only received less than 200,000 yuan from fortune-telling during this time, and Director Gao also didn’t stop searching for sponsor, but tt seemed that this time the crew was really going to end.
Someone outside shouted, "Sister Yao, someone is looking for you."
"Okay." Gong Qingyao nodded.
Then the person walked in, and everyone was surprised, because the person who came was Qin Ze, young master who was very famous in the capital.
Before coming to the crew, Qin Ze made a phone call to Gong Qingyao, and learned that she had no scenes to film tonight and was free, so he asked if he could come to visit the crew.
Gong Qingyao felt that there was nothing wrong, so she agreed.
Hearing Gong Qingyao's agreement, Qin Ze went directly to the crew, only to find that although everyone was surprised, everyone expression was very guarded, so he couldn't help asking, "What's the matter?"
Qu Yi didn't react directly. He didn't expect Gong Qingyao and Qin Ze to know each other. How did these two people meet?
Someone among the crowd said, "The crew is out of money, and the filming of ‘Yi Yao’ is about to stop."
Qin Ze knew that Gong Qingyao's current film was called ‘Yi Yao’, and he also knew that Gong Qingyao would only pick up something she liked, "How much money is needed? Is 50 million enough?"
Qu Yi looked at Qin Ze, and asked in disbelief, "You, you mean?"
"Well, yes, I invest." Qin Ze said directly, let alone 50 million, as long as Gong Qingyao liked it, 100 million was also fine.
Qu Yi burst into tears. At the beginning of the filming, his wife supported him, and she also supported selling the house and car, but he didn’t expect that he would go to a dead end twice, just when he thought there was no other solution, suddenly fortune came knocking on the door.
Seeing that Qu Yi was so excited, Qin Ze said, "If the director is okay, I will pay the funds as soon as possible."
Director Qu waved his hands again and again, his expression excited, "President Qin, you are too polite, you are our benefactor!"
The crew did not expect that in just such a short time, they would be able to get 50 million yuan investment out of thin air, and each became excited and shouted, "Thank you President Qin."
"President Qin, you are a good person."
Qin Ze smiled, "I also hope that you will make good films."
Everyone was very polite. Qu Yi knew that Qin Ze came to see Gong Qingyao, so he didn't say for long. For the follow up, Qin Ze asked the company to contact Qu Yi.
"Shall we go to the tea lounge?" Qin Ze said, looking at Gong Qingyao.
Gong Qingyao had no objection. Qu Yi still needed to handle the investment, so the crew would not be filming for the time being. The two sat down in the tea lounge and Gong Qingyao asked, "What's the matter?" Under normal circumstances, if there was no emergency, Qin Ze wouldn't come over.
"Miss you." Qin Ze blurted out.
"Huh?" Gong Qingyao showed a look of doubt.
Qin Ze waved his hand immediately, "I mean, long time no see." A suspicious blush floated behind his ears.
"Yes." Gong Qingyao's expression seemed to say ‘is there anything else?’
Qin Ze paused and looked at Gong Qingyao, "Have you ever thought about your family?"
Gong Qingyao was originally an orphan. She never thought about her family. To be precise, the last time she thought about that was probably a long time ago, when she was young, she might have fantasized about her parents, but Gong Qingyao couldn't remember what it was like now.
Seeing that Gong Qingyao had no reaction at all, Qin Ze asked again, "Have you ever thought that your parents are still alive?"
"What are you trying to say?" Gong Qingyao asked, a trace of impatience flashed in her eyes.
Qin Ze saw this look, but Qin Ze knew that Gong Qingyao was not targeting himself, but Gong Qingyao didn't want to face the issue of her family.
Qin Ze decided to tell all he knew, "Recently, two elderly people have been showing up at your door."
At this moment, Gong Qingyao seemed to know something.
"I heard the company staff mention it, then I realized these two old people have been coming every day, so I asked them what they wanted." Qin Ze looked at Gong Qingyao and saw there was no other reaction. Then he continued, "They are from the capital’s Gong family." The capital hasd four big families, the Qin, the Li, the Qiao, and the Jiang family, each families had their allies, and this Gong family was Qin family’s ally.
So when he saw that the people downstairs were the elders from Gong Family, Qin Ze had to go down and have a look. But he didn't expect the next dialogue to be really difficult for him to accept.
"Uncle Gong, Aunt Gong." After Qin Ze went downstairs, he went directly to Gong Liangji and Song Qiubai and greeted them.
The two families were in close contact, so Qin Ze also knew that many years ago, the child of these two elders disappeared. This child was the first child of the two. It was said that until ten years ago, the Gong family had never given up on searching, but the search found nothing. The two elders were heartbroken and decided that they would never have a child again in this life.
Speaking of it, the Gong family’s life was really miserable. Besides the eldest son’s missing child, the second son also had only one daughter, Gong Muqing. Gong Muqing married Shen Sinian a few years ago. The couple was very affectionate, but they weren’t able to get pregnant until now. The two couples went to find a lot of hospitals for this, but it was useless.
"It's Xiao Ze." Gong Liangji said. They knew that Qin Ze lead the Children Go Home, so it was not surprising to meet Qin Ze here.
Qin Ze said, "Why are you here? Do you want to sit at my house for a while?"
After Qin Ze’s invitation, the two old people agreed. Qin Ze took the old man to his villa and made some tea. After the two drank a few sips of tea, Qin Ze asked again, "What's the matter with you here?"
Out of the two, Song Qiubai was the first to be unable to sit still and asked, "Are you familiar with Qingyao?"
Qin Ze said, "Familiar, very good friend." After speaking, Qin Ze was startled. He really felt that the two were very familiar with each other. He also felt that Gong Qingyao was a little different in treating himself compared to others. Of course, he also knew that this difference had nothing to do with feelings or anything.
However, Qin Ze then looked up, when did the Gong family become familiar with Gong Qingyao? He noticed that Song Qiubai called Qingyao name directly.
Song Qiubai then asked, her tone full of concern, "Then how did she live?"
Qin Ze was a little angry when he heard this. There should be no need to ask other people if they were doing well. If someone really cared, they should investigate themselves. Thinking of this, Qin Ze was a little angry, "Not good."
Gong Liangji and Song Qiubai immediately looked at each other, and now Gong Liangji couldn't wait to ask, "What happened?"
"Not much." Qin Ze said, "Qingyao is very hard working. In addition to helping our company, she also has to go to filming, and she also does charity in her free time. She has a very hard life every day."
"Does she lack of money?" Gong Liangji asked.
"Uncle Gong, sometimes money can't solve everything." Qin Ze said seriously, everything that could be solved by money was nothing.
