Chapter 75- He Said He Would Support Me
The next morning, after bidding farewell to the crew, Jiang Liucheng and his party headed to the airport and left by plane.
After returning to Yunshi, someone came to pick them up, so they had to go through the aisle.
After yesterday’s wrap-up banquet was reported on the Internet, some fans speculated that Jiang Liucheng would return to Yunshi today. His manager told him that there were a lot of people guarding the airport and asked him to walk through the aisle to avoid bumping into people outside.
Ten minutes later, they left the airport smoothly and got into the car sent by the company.
His manager saw Qin Lu as soon as he turned his head. His brows twitched, but he then quickly calmed down.
Anyway, Jiang Liucheng signed a contract with a company in which he has a share. The shareholder is blatantly dating the artist, and he doesn’t worry about it.
More than half an hour later, the car drove to the parking lot of the company.
Knowing that his manager wanted to discuss business matters with Jiang Liucheng, Qin Lu did not follow and only said affectionately to Jiang Liucheng. “I’m going to talk to Mr. Shi, and I’ll come back to you after that.”
“Okay.” Jiang Liucheng nodded his head.
After the two separated, Jiang Liucheng followed his manager to another floor.
Meanwhile, Qin Lu went to a higher floor and came to Mr. Shi’s office.
Mr. Shi received Qin Lu’s message in the morning and learned that he was coming today, so he was not surprised to see him. He even smiled at Qin Lu meaningfully; “Since the company signed Jiang Liucheng, you seem to come to the company more frequently. Like I told you yesterday, I didn’t expect you to come here with him?”
“When did you talk so much nonsense?” Qin Lu walked in, stretched his long legs, and sat on the only couch in the office. On the leather sofa, his legs were spread apart, and his expression was loose.
“It’s just that your appearances had increased in recent months.” Mr. Shi closed his computer and said with a smile: “Even if you are an investor in that web drama, you, the big boss, don’t need to come forward for this one. Is there something wrong with it? Or is there a purpose that you’re not telling others?”
Qin Lu said: “Is your surname Baminggua? Why are you too interested in gossip?”
“My surname is not Baminggua, but someone is interested in your little artist. They’re all asking me about him.”
Qin Lu’s heart moved. Not many people could find Mr. Shin and would find him just to ask about Jiang Liucheng. “It’s my mother, is that it?”
Mr. Shi: “I see that you’re still so sharp. How did you guess it?”
Qin Lu only mentioned his situation with Jiang Liucheng to his mother.”What did she ask?”
Mr. Shi: “First, tell me what your relationship with him is.”
Qin Lu raised his eyelids and gave him a blank look, “Didn’t you already guess it?”
Mr. Shi raised his eyebrows: “It’s actually true? Yes, I do count you as an old tree blooming. I thought you might not even have a date and that you’ve only been hugged three times in this lifetime of yours.”
Qin Lu narrowed his eyes at him.
Upon seeing his appearance, Mr. Shi immediately stopped gossiping, “Okay, auntie just asked me about Jiang Liucheng such as what kind of person he is. I told him that he is very obedient and not simply a child of hype. I’ve also added that he has ambition and doesn’t take the initiative to cause trouble. However, if someone dares to provoke him, he doesn’t seem to be able to swallow his anger.”
This is what Boss Shi summed up after reading about Jiang Liucheng’s past experience.
Qin Lu took out a pack of cigarettes from his pocket, lit one, and hesitated before saying, “What did she say?”
Mr. Shi didn’t stop him from smoking. Qin Lu didn’t usually smoke much, and he smoked more fiercely than him. “She didn’t say anything much. She just said that she didn’t expect you to like this obedient type. By the way, I was talking to her on the phone at the time, and her secretary just came in and said that a Weibo account had been registered. I guess she might plan to go to Weibo to search for events related to your little artist.”
Qin Lu hummed and took another puff of the cigarette.
Mr. Shi couldn’t see what he was thinking, so he said: “Aren’t you worried? Auntie is such a strong person; can she accept that you like men?”
Qin Lu put his hands on the sofa and spread his legs apart: “What if she doesn’t accept it? I am her only son, and she will not allow the Qin family’s property to fall into the hands of others.”
Mr. Shi knew what ‘others’ Qin Lu was referring to- Qin Dong’s illegitimate son. “It’s true that if she doesn’t accept it, she can’t do anything to you, but this is just an optimistic idea. What if she finds Jiang Liucheng in private and asks him to leave you? His career is still on the rise. It’s too easy to mess with him with aunt’s ability.”
Qin Lu raised his eyebrows: “When watching TV dramas before, my mother complained that this situation was too bloody. In her worldview, if two people are not suitable, time will sooner or later give it away. She will give the answer, and there is no need for her to act.”
Mr. Shi gave a thumbs up, “Auntie will always be my idol.”
“Let’s get down to business.” Qin Lu took the initiative to end this topic.
After hearing his words, Mr. Shi said: “Of course, I made a move. It seems that it is for real. The Chinese New Year will be over a month away. Now that all kinds of publicity have been spread out, a lot of advertising investment has been spent. Tongbao film and television industry knew it clearly, so they deliberately blocked our upcoming movie.”
Qin Lv: “Does the Mo family invest in a few movies that will be released during the Chinese New Year? I do remember that there is a specific film wherein they invested in a lot.”
“Yes, there are two. One of them has less investment as they focus on another movie, which is a sci-fi movie that burns a lot of money. The work was directed by Zhao Liqian. Mo is very optimistic. Even his cost of advertising costs more than necessary.” Mr.Shi smiled, but his smile was a bit sarcastic. Jiang Liucheng’s problem was actually just incidental, and Mo’s Group was willing to help Mo’s Entertainment because of profit.
Sparks also has a movie coming out at the beginning of the year, which is the biggest competitor of Mo’s sci-fi movie.
“By the way, one of our dramas got stuck in the release approval checkpoint. It was also Mo’s fault. This is merciless.” Mr. Shi clicked his tongue twice.
Qin Lu was about to finish his cigarette. He put the cigarette butt out in the ashtray, stood up, and said, “If Tongbao can’t cooperate, then cooperate with Zhongcheng Film and Television. I have already discussed this with them. As for the stuck drama, it would not be a big problem.”
“Splendid,” Mr. Shi praised, “You have completely taken over the family business?”
Qin Lu poured a glass of water, took a sip, and said, “Not yet. The old man took over the family business. I don’t dare to delegate power to that part, probably because I’m afraid that my mother and I will kill his illegitimate son after it.”
“He brought out.” Mr. Shi clicked his tongue, “Mr. Qin is becoming more and more confused as he gets older.”
Qin Lu scoffed. He smiled and said: “It doesn’t matter; it won’t last long anyway. Not to mention the fact that he broke the contract first. Even if I agree, my mother will not agree.”
Mr. Shi: “That’s true.”
Qin Lu walked towards the door, “If there is nothing else, I’ll go first.”
“Wait.” President Shi stopped him, “Speaking of which, there is one more thing about your little lover.”

“You should have heard of XX Variety Show, right? Its first season was very popular, and now the second season is about to be released. They want to invite you to be a resident guest. It just so happens that this variety show will start broadcasting next year, so it won’t delay your rest. It will take a while to get on. If you can get on this variety show, you will be able to maintain exposure for at least half a year, it will only be good for you, so my suggestion is to take it.”
In an office, Li Qiu was talking to Jiang Liucheng about his future work arrangements.
“I’ll think about it.” Jiang Liucheng has never been on variety shows, so he doesn’t know much about variety shows.
“Actually, you don’t have to think about it. I think you can accept it. The resident guests invited by this variety show are all well-known. The advantages outweigh the disadvantages for you, and you are so popular recently their price will not be lower than this amount.” Li Qiu compared a number in front of him
No one would think of too much money, and Jiang Liucheng didn’t care too much at first, but he suddenly thought that when he married Qin Lu in the future, he should indeed bear half of the responsibility of supporting his family. With Qin Lu’s status, his usual expenses should not be low. It’s time for him to consider making more money.
“I’ve never participated in variety shows. Variety shows generally need people with a sense of variety. I don’t know if I have any.”
Li Qiu saw that he was worried about this, so he smiled: “You don’t have to worry about this. I received a lot of invitations from variety shows, and I thought you were going to be filming, so I declined it. This just happened to hit the time.”
“You may not know, you have the title as a walking humanoid food safety inspection machine. As long as you are on a variety show, you will definitely be able to create a lot of jokes, and there will be a lot of fun. Those variety shows that want to invite you are interested in this, and it is easy to create topics. Just based on this, you don’t have to be afraid of not being able to cope up”
“Well, I will seriously consider it.” Jiang Liucheng said.
Seeing that he was more serious, Li Qiu felt relieved as long as he took this matter to heart.
Jiang Liucheng’s cell phone rang suddenly. When he took it out, he saw that it was a message from Qin Lu, saying that he had finished talking and now he was going to come down to find him. He also asked him what did he talk about his manager.
Jiang Liucheng replied that they had just chatted, and Li Qiu didn’t keep him when he saw this, “Do you need me to ask the driver to take you back?”
“No. I’ll be going first, then.” Jiang Liucheng shook his head and walked out.
Jiang Liucheng came to the elevator. Just as it dinged, the elevator opened.
Qin Lu stood inside and beckoned at him.
Jiang Liucheng immediately walked into the elevator, shoulder to shoulder with him. “I have work tomorrow and the day after tomorrow.”
Qin Lu: “It’s okay. I’ll be busy for two days, just right.”
At this moment, Qin Lu’s cell phone rang.
Qin Lu glanced at the caller. He was a little surprised, but he was also expecting this call. Thus, he answered the channel: “Why are you calling me again?”
“I’m free the day after tomorrow.”
Qin Lu raised his eyebrows and turned on the speakerphone: “So?”
Jiang Liucheng heard a strong and nice female voice coming from the phone: “I checked. Xiao Jiang has no important work the day after tomorrow. You can delay this for a while, but not for a lifetime.”
Qin Lv: “`You also know that he has a job tomorrow and the day after tomorrow. Should I tell him otherwise? As for being so urgent…”
“This is very urgent.”
“Okay, I’ll tell him right away. “
After Qin Lu finished speaking, he hung up the phone without giving the other party a chance to answer.
Jiang Liucheng blinked, “Is this your mother?”
Qin Lu: “Well, she called me last night and said she wanted to see you, but before I had time to tell you, she actually went to investigate your schedule. She is really busy at ordinary times, so she probably can’t wait to see you.”
Jiang Liucheng did not hesitate, “Then I will meet her. It happens that I want to see Auntie.”
Qin Lu was startled, “You want to see her?”
Jiang Liucheng: “If we get married in the future, our life will definitely be happier if we have her blessing. And I have to promise Auntie a good life for you so that she will give you to me at ease. Although I don’t make enough money now, I will work hard in the future, so that’s about it.”
Qin Lu didn’t expect that one day he would be placed in such a position by his partner, and a smile gradually appeared on his face: “Are you going to support me?”
Jiang Liucheng: “Well, I will definitely support you.”
In the evening, the strong woman received a message from her son.
——He said he wanted to support me.
