Chapter 58- Visit Shoot
Jian Qiao stood up in surprise. He looked at the person who came and was a little surprised. “Brother Qin, why are you here?”
Qin Lu paused. He didn’t know that Jiang Liucheng also invited Jian Qiao. “Why are you here?”
Jian Qiao said, “Liucheng invited me to dinner.”
Qin Lu noticed that the way he addressed Jiang Liucheng had changed. He used to call him Mr. Jiang, but now it has become Liucheng, which sounds like they’ve gotten a lot closer.
Seeing that he didn’t speak, Jiang Liucheng remembered that he forgot to tell him that Jian Qiao was coming as well, so he explained, “Screenwriter Jian said that the seafood in this seafood porridge is very fresh and delicious, so I invited you in as well.”
Qin Lu nodded. And when he was going to take a seat, Jian Qiao was about to get up and pulled out a chair next to him.
However, Qin Lu walked over to Jiang Liucheng and sat down next to him.
“Since everyone has arrived, let’s start ordering. The seafood here is ordered by the guests themselves.” Jian Qiao sat back naturally. He looked at Qin Lu and asked, “Brother Qin, what kind of seafood do you like to eat?”
Jiang Liucheng got up, “I’ll order with you, I know what seafood he likes to eat.”
Qin Lu’s mood suddenly improved.
Jian Qiao glanced at Qin Lu, who had tacitly said nothing, “Okay.”
Ten minutes later, the two came back after ordering the seafood. While waiting for the seafood porridge to be served, Jian Qiao kept chatting with Jiang Liucheng, and they talked a lot about the scenes he was going to shoot in the next few days.
Qin Lu only said a few words occasionally and then lowered his head and used his mobile phone to reply to his other contacts.
Cheng Qinghua asked him when he would come back and asked him to give him some time so that he could prepare the set for tonight’s scene.
In fact, Qin Lu has filmed all day today. Because it has entered the late stage, the crew has become busier.
His recent scenes are also very full. In order to come out to eat this meal, he asked Cheng Qinghua to film other people’s scenes first and temporarily pushed his scenes back.
Half an hour later, the seafood porridge they ordered was served. The hot aroma instantly filled the entire private room, exciting everyone’s appetite.
“I didn’t lie to you, did I?” Jian Qiao said with a smile, “The seafood porridge in this shop is really fresh, even better than those in high-end restaurants.”
Jiang Liucheng nodded while diverting his gaze toward Qin Lu. “Is it delicious?”
Qin Lu wiped his mouth after taking a spoonful bowl and said, “It’s really delicious. We’ll eat together here again next time.”
Jiang Liucheng: “Okay.”
Jian Qiao paused slightly while holding his spoon. He glanced at Qin Lu and felt that the last sentence was only for himself and Jiang Liucheng.
After eating the seafood porridge, the group walked out of the seafood shop, and Qin Lu called Jiang Liucheng over.
“Your role in the crew should be almost over, and you can free up the time when you finish filming.”
Jiang Liucheng didn’t ask why he was asking about his free time, “You should still be filming that day. I’ll go to your crew to find you then.”
Qin Lu smiled. “Okay then.”
After the chat, Jiang Liucheng returned to his assistant’s car. When Jian Qiao saw Qin Lu drive away, he finally spoke, “Doesn’t Brother Qin look a little unhappy today?”
Jiang Liucheng gave him a puzzled look. “Unhappy? Why would he be unhappy?”
Jian Qiao said, “Because of me. He might’ve thought that only you and your assistant are here for dinner. He doesn’t know I am here either, making him displeased. I didn’t say much when he was in the box.”
Jiang Liucheng: “He’s not that kind of person. If you were talking about when he didn’t speak much, it should be because of Director Cheng was looking for him. It has nothing to do with you.”
Jian Qiao breathed a sigh of relief, “That’s good. I’ve been worried. I don’t want to make my idol unhappy because of me.”

Jiang Liucheng just lets him be.
At the Mist Killing crew’s hotel, Jiang Liucheng bid Jian Qiao farewell and returned to his room.
As soon as the door was closed, Li Qiu called and told him that the specific start time of the online drama had been set.
“The start time is just a week later, on the morning of September 5th. Before that, you should have finished the production in the Mist Killing crew.”
“The rest of the scenes can be completed in about three days; if it’s fast, it may be done within two days.”
“Even if it is three days, I will arrange another announcement for you for the remaining time. It is a luxury endorsement that the company has negotiated for you. With this endorsement, your worth will also increase a lot.”
“I only have time for the last two days. After finishing the project, I have an appointment with Qin Lu.”
“Two days is fine, but you will join the group soon. Won’t you be too tired?”
“No, I’m young.”
After Qin Lu returned to the crew, the makeup artist applied and styled him as quickly as possible as everyone was busy preparing for the next scene.
Several scenes were filmed until after one o’clock in the middle of the night when the sky suddenly started to drizzle.
Everyone hurriedly stopped working, moved props, and collected equipment.
Cheng Qinghua got into Qin Lu’s car and went back to the hotel together, “You rarely ask for leave when you are filming. But this time, you disappeared for a few hours. Where did you go?”
Qin Lu didn’t want to pay attention to him at first, but suddenly thought of something and said, “I went to see my troubled friend.”
Cheng Qinghua said twice, “Has his current troubles been resolved?”
Qin Lu “No, he has more troubles now.”
Cheng Qinghua: “What do you mean?”
Qin Lu: “The two of them had an appointment to go out to dinner, but his friend asked another friend, and the two had a good conversation at the dinner table.”
Cheng Qinghua touched his chin, “You mean he only made an appointment with you and later made an appointment with another?”
Qin Lu didn’t change his expression, “I’m talking about my friend.”
Cheng Qinghua: “Oh yes, I’m wrong. I’m really sorry. Every time you say you have a friend, I can’t help but think of a series of friends. People on the Internet say that a friend usually refers to me.”
Qin Lu responded lightly.
Cheng Qinghua was disappointed when he saw that he didn’t react at all. He thought he could blow him up. Before he went back, the more he thought about it, the more he thinks bout his series of friends. It seems that it is really possible that he thinks too much.
This friend should not be Qin Lu. He has known Qin Lu for so many years and has never seen a few close friends who can reach this level.
Qin Lu said, “My friend said that he not only had an appointment with him but also with several assistants.”
Cheng Qinghua was stunned for a moment, “It turns out that it’s not just the three of you. There are so many people. Why is your friend so unhappy?”
Qin Lu: “He probably feels that his friendship with his friends has been interfered with by a third party.”
Cheng Qinghua thought for a while, “There’s no way around this. You could tell your friend to him and his friend to meet each other more and chat more often so that your friend’s friend doesn’t have the heart to think about having another friend.”
Qin Lu thought for a moment, “This is a good way. I will tell him.”
So at noon the next day, when the crew temporarily stopped work, Qin Lu and Cheng Qinghua said that they had something to go out for.
“Where are you going?” This is the second time Qin Lu has left the crew.
“Liucheng is in the Mist Killing crew. I’ll go visit him.” Qin Lu told the truth.
Cheng Qinghua didn’t think of the content of yesterday’s chat at all, and when he heard this, he immediately said, “I want to see him too.”
Qin Lu glanced at him, “You can’t do that. The crew won’t be able to function without you now. If you leave, and the crew isn’t able to handle something, it will only cause us some delay.”
Cheng Qinghua knew that what he said was reasonable and looked disappointed, “Okay, I really envy you.”
Poor Cheng Qinghua, he unknowingly helping his rival in love to successfully get his crush.
