RS: Chapter 44
A’Xue and Old Chen pulled at A’Zhao’s sleeve, advising him not to go on.
However, A’Zhao was originally a straightforward and cheerful person, with a sense of justice. Despite their attempts, he kept insisting, “Brother Yuan, I think I should speak on this matter. Ming Yu is a newcomer, he probably hasn’t been trained in acting before. Once he was put in a group with Old Lu, what should Old Lu do?”
A’Zhao looked at the pale face of Lu Zhenxi and asked, “Old Lu, tell us. Weren’t you just playing on the phone instead of rehearsing? I wanted to ask you about it, but Ming Yu’s peaceful manner stopped me. Am I wrong?”
Lu Zhenxi’s expression changed dramatically at A’Zhao’s words. Brother Yuan also looked at Lu Zhenxi in a thoughtful manner, finally understanding the situation.
At this point, Ming Yu was frowning slightly but didn’t say anything. He didn’t agree with A’Zhao to defend himself, nor did he act like a white lotus and speak up for Lu Zhenxi. He just stood there with his head bowed.
However, this appearance just solidified Brother Yuan’s thoughts.
Brother Yuan sighed softly and scolded, “Lu Zhenxi, you aren’t a child. Why couldn’t you work together? You were able to enter my class, so playing on the phone during rehearsal time is really wrong. I am in charge so tonight, please invited Ming Yu and everyone else to a meal to apologize. Then I will let this matter pass.”
Brother Yuan’s suggestion wasn’t unpleasant.
After all, everyone was part of the same company. Lu Zhenxi wasn’t really sociable or have a good relationship with A’Zhao, but he was already a debuted model.
Sure enough, Lu Zhenxi wasn’t stupid. He didn’t expect A’Zhao to help the ‘outsider’ and expose his shortcomings, and he was suddenly at a disadvantage.
Lu Zhenxi had already debuted and his agent was Zeng Shu, so his conditions were good. However, everyone knew that Zeng Shu was in charge of two supermodels and several popular first-tier models. Lu Zhenxi was a small and unknown model and hadn’t seen Zeng Shu for almost half a month. His assistant mostly managed him.
All in all, Lu Zhenxi’s position in the company wasn’t really good. His agent being hostile to Ming Yu’s agent was the only reason why he dared offend Ming Yu so recklessly.
And in his heart, he thought that Zeng Shu was much more amazing than Zhao Rui. Ming Yu might be in the limelight recently, but Cheng Su was still far ahead.
Lu Zhenxi showed some disdain as he thought this. Finally, he cleared his expression and bowed to Ming Yu. “Sorry Ming Yu, I shouldn’t have played with my phone during the rehearsal. I don’t want to be at odds with you, so I will invite you to dinner tonight as an apology.”
His words were perfect, but his tone wasn’t very sincere, causing Brother Yuan to frown.
But Ming Yu just smiled and shook his head. “There is no need for dinner. I understand you heart and it isn’t a big deal. After all, we will be classmates.”
The youth’s voice was pleasant and gently, reminding them of a spring breeze. Brother Yuan couldn’t help thinking in his heart, ‘Look! Ming Yu is dignified and not arrogant. He doesn’t let the pressure get to his heart! Lu Zhenxi, you really have a lot to learn!’
…Well, if he was a villain, Ming Yu would be a black-hearted sesame bag.
Look at this gentle expression, this wall of calmness!
Ming Xiaoyu didn’t say anything, letting the upright A’Zhao reveal the truth. This allowed Ming Xiaoyu to control their hearts.
But for A’Zhao, Ming Yu had different thoughts. Once no one was paying attention, he carefully watched the other person and had some ideas.
If it was someone else’s business, Ming YU wouldn’t help. But one of Ming Xiaoyu’s rules of life was to already repay gratitude.
A’Zhao helped him without asking anything in return. Such people weren’t common in this industry, so he should really do something for the other person.
The matter was temporarily over. Lu Zhenxi still found it difficult to smile, but the others were laughing again.
Brother Yuan started to give advice on the shortcomings of the five people. Old Chen and A’Zhao wanted to get away, but Brother Yuan dealt quick blows.
There wasn’t a lot of content in the afternoon class and Lu Zhenxi invited everyone to eat. Therefore, Brother Yuan made a suggestion. They would end the class ahead of schedule and go out to eat together. This could be considered a welcoming party for Ming Yu.
While tidying up the books on the table, A’Xue smiled and said, “Thank you so much, Ming Xiaoyu. Old Lu is so stingy! Wanting him to treat us? The degree of difficulty is too high! If it wasn’t for you, I really don’t know when we could eat a meal bought by Old Lu!”
Ming Yu just gently shook his head. “Lu Zhenxi is too polite. In fact, it isn’t a big deal.”
Old Chen interrupted from where he was listening on the side, “Don’t say that! Anyway, it really is rare for Old Lu to buy us a meal!”
Soon, everyone was chatting again. A’Xue and Old Chen joked about Lu Zhenxi, while the latter was acting strangely. Ming Yu had just arrived and didn’t bring anything with him, so he waited outside the door for everyone to pack up.
The slowest A’Xue was still packing her things when there was a sharp ‘click’ sound from beside Ming Yu.
Ming Yu turned with a startled expression, seeing a gently man standing in the doorway.
The pair stared at each other for a moment, before Ming Yu nodded lightly. The other person glanced at him a few more times with a thoughtful expression. Ming Yu was trying to figure out who this was when Lu Zhenxi let out a strange sound of surprise, “Brother Zeng! What are you doing here?”
Ming Yu was suddenly enlightened and looked at this handsome and elegant man.
—So this was Zeng Shu?
Zeng Shu didn’t pay attention to Ming Yu’s look as he walked to Lu Zhenxi, laughing lightly. “Ah, there is a trip you need to go on tomorrow, so I came to find you.” Zeng Shu paused before asking, “I just heard, you need to treat them to a meal?”
A bright light flashed in Lu Zhenxi’s eyes at the words.
Ming Yu, “…”
He guessed what was going to happen next—
Tell the parents!
That’s right. For 5,000 years of Chinese civilization, the time-tested trick in a children’s quarrel was一
Tell the parents!
Oh, there was another terrible trick: Tell the teacher.
Lu Zhenxi was smart. He didn’t exaggerate or lie. He just told Zeng Shu why he had to treat them to dinner. Once learning that it was due to Ming Yu, Zeng Shu looked slightly surprised and turned to glance at the boy standing in front of the door.
Zeng Shu had recognized Ming Yu at first glance.
Forget about how fast this youth’s popularity was growing in recent months. By virtue of his agent being ‘Zhao Rui,’ Zhen Shu already had all of Ming Yu’s details firmly in his mind. He even knew the result of the revised physical test this morning.
Zeng Shu didn’t like Zhao Rui.
This was known to many people in Muse.
The two men had a very bad relationship since entering the company. Zeng Shu was powerful and used his skills to become Muse’s first-tier agent. The latter didn’t have a lot of skills, but he had the solid backing of chief stylist Zhou Wei Zhuo, allowing him to meet a lot of senior Muse members.
There was also a small incident. In fact, when Ming Yu was first discovered by Muse scouts, Zeng Shu and Zhao Rui fought to get him. Finally, Zhao Rui became Ming Yu’s agent, so these two people were still fresh in Zeng Shu’s mind.
Now that he knew his model was in a predicament because of Ming Yu, Zeng Shu couldn’t help taking a more serious look at Ming Yu.
However, Zeng Shu was Zeng Shu. He didn’t speak for Lu Zhenxi, reprimanding him instead. “Don’t do something stupid and practice well.”
Lu Zhenxi nodded at the words.
But Lu Zhenxi was surprised by the next words. Zeng Shu smiled and said, “This isn’t a big deal. It is just a trivial matter. I will pay for tonight’s dinner. However, Lu Zhenxi can’t attend the dinner. After all, we have a trip tomorrow.”
Brother Yuan, A’Zhao and the others weren’t aware of anything unusual and agreed to Zeng Shu’s proposal. But Ming Yu’s lips dropped slightly and he quietly watched Zeng Shu.
Zeng Shu had done two things. First, he paid for Lu Zhenxi. Second, he took Lu Zhenxi away from the dinner.
By doing these two things, he was acknowledging Lu Zhenzi’s mistake but not giving any responsibility to him. He seemed to be saying: ‘You might think he is wrong, but he won’t get any punishment.’ Accepting this proposal was a small psychological victory.
The two people stared at each other for a moment. Then Ming Yu sighed and nodded, “Okay, Brother Zeng.”
Zeng Shu couldn’t help revealing a cold smile. He turned to Lu Zhenxi and said, “Let’s go,” before walking with Lu Zhenxi to the door.
Ming Yu stood silently in front of the door, watching the two people come closer.
Once Zeng Shu and Lu Zhenxi were less than a metre away, Ming Yu planned to step aside and let the two men open the door. However, he had just lifted his feet when he suddenly felt his left hand being pulled!
Ming Yu raised surprised eyes to the door, falling into a pair of deep eyes. Somehow, his heart became quiet. The stuffy and helpless feeling from being forced to compromised completely disappeared!
The beautiful youth gently smiled as he looked at his friend standing outside.
Then that handsome and elegant man pushed open the door in an indifferent manner. Once the door was pushed open, the long shadow of the man suddenly appeared in the training room.
As a result, a powerful and oppressive aura spread instantly.
