Chapter 48- Bend For You
There are no clouds, and the sky is as blue as a wash.
A plane cut through the sky and landed at the airport in Yunshi. A young man pushed a black suitcase and followed the crowd. He stood at the exit and looked around. When he saw a familiar hat in the crowd, his face immediately changed. He went over to that direction happily.
“Busy man, you really came to pick me up.”
Jiang Liucheng poked his hat and saw his friend who he hadn’t seen for a year in front of him. “Am I the kind of person who will stand you up?”
Qiao Mei strode forward and put his arms around his shoulders, and said heartily, “Of course, you won’t, why is it only you? Didn’t Guo Qifan say that he would come to pick me up too?”
Jiang Liucheng reached out to pick up his suitcase, and Qiao Mei said, “I’ll do it myself.”
Jiang Liucheng didn’t care as the two walked towards the exit together.
“Guo Qifan was called by his boss and is working overtime now.”
He used to say it was the day after tomorrow, but it was delayed due to some unexpected events. Qiao Mei changed the sign to today. Knowing that today was Sunday, Guo Qifan, who didn’t have to go to work, said he would come to pick him up. Who knew that by Sunday, he was also temporarily dispatched by his boss. Thus, he finally had to let Jiang Liucheng come to pick him up.
Jiang Liucheng brought his friend to the parking place. When Qiao Mei saw his car, he could not help but ask. “Is this the new car you bought?”

Jiang Liucheng said, “No, it’s my agent’s car.”
He originally planned to buy one himself, but Li Qiu said that he happened to have one and would not use it anyway. So it has been used since then.
“You’re a big star now, why don’t you buy one yourself?” Qiao Mei asked after getting in the car.
“I was going to buy one…” Jiang Liucheng didn’t plan to use the agent’s car all the time.
Qiao Mei raised his brows, “Listen to what you are saying. What do you mean? What happened?”
Jiang Liucheng nodded, “I signed a contract with Spark Entertainment, and they plan to give me a car, so I don’t need to buy one.”
Although Qiao Mei doesn’t pay much attention to the entertainment industry, he also heard about Sparks Entertainment, and said in surprise, “Is Sparks the company that Qin Lu signed before? There are many popular movies and TV shows that came from there.”
Jiang Liucheng said, “He is now a shareholder of Spark.”
Qiao Mei suddenly felt amused, “Okay, Liucheng, now you have not only made Emperor Qin your matchmaker, but also your boss. Are you going to develop another identity in the next step?”
Jiang Liucheng was slightly startled. He didn’t think much about it at first, but when he heard his friend’s words, he somehow thought of the words “blind date” in his mind.
The car pulled out of the garage, and the harsh sunlight shone through the front glass.
Jiang Liucheng squinted his eyes and instantly came out of his thoughts just now. It was Guo Qifan’s fault. The words he said before affected him.
“What’s the matter?” Qiao Mei saw that he suddenly stopped talking.
“Nothing.” Jiang Liucheng shook his head.
Qiao Mei asked again, “Have you had a blind date recently?”
Jiang Liucheng: “No, I was busy before, and I don’t have time for now.”
Qiao Mei raised his eyebrows, “It means if you’re not busy now, then you’re ready to start a blind date.”
Jiang Liucheng thought that the originally scheduled online drama might be about to fly. If he didn’t join the crew, he wouldn’t be so busy. Instead, he could go on a blind date. He nodded and said, “Well, I have this plan.”
Qiao Mei thought of something and said with a smile, “It seems that the whole Internet knows that you are on a blind date. It is estimated that there will be entertainment reporters staring at you. You are a big star now, aren’t you afraid of being photographed?”
Jiang Liucheng didn’t think about this problem. He parked the car at a traffic light intersection, and put it in neutral gear, “Why would I be an artist if I am afraid of being photographed? I don’t want to sneak around.”
Qiao Mei said, “Society’s tolerance for homosexuality is not that high, especially for celebrities.”
Jiang Liucheng didn’t hesitate when saying, “Then I’ll quit the circle. I can go be a lawyer or a teacher.”
Qiao Mei laughed when he heard the words, “You really haven’t changed at all. Haven’t you considered letting Emperor Qin introduce you to a girl on a blind date?”
Jiang Liucheng glanced at his friend as if puzzled by his words, “Didn’t I think about it for a year?”
Qiao Mei was stunned for a moment, and it took a while to realize that what he called a year meant that he had a blind date for a year after graduation.
The conversation between the two was interrupted by a phone call. It was Jiang Liucheng’s phone that rang.
Li Qiu called and told him that the company had arranged for him to attend a large-scale ceremony the night after tomorrow. Because the time was a little short, he had to choose the clothes to wear to the event the day after tomorrow.
Jiang Liucheng asked Li Qiu if he could bring a friend over there. Li Qiu heard him last night that he was going to pick up a friend today. He thought there should be no problem, so he agreed.
After hanging up the phone, Jiang Liucheng said to Qiao Mei, “My agent asked me to go to the company now. Do you want to go back to the community first, or go to the company with me?”
Although Qiao Mei doesn’t chase stars, he still has curiosity as an ordinary person.
Jiang Liucheng diverted halfway and drove to the headquarters of Spark Entertainment.
When he got downstairs from the company, Li Qiu was waiting for him outside, and he quickly waved when he saw the car coming.
“This is my friend Qiao Mei, and this is my manager Li Qiu.”
After getting off the vehicle, Jiang Liucheng introduced both parties.
The two exchanged a few words before Li Qiu took them up. When they went up, he told him about his attendance at the ceremony the day after tomorrow.
“There are many celebrities participating in this grand ceremony, and there will be a red carpet part. The company intends to let you show your face. However, because of the urgent notice, it is too late to customize the clothes you would wear on the day, so the company has prepared a few sets for you. They let you come and try which suit is suitable.”
“Because it’s your first time participating in such a grand event, I heard that the company has arranged for you a senior and that senior will take you there, so don’t worry.”
