He Woke Up and Became The Actor’s Cat Chapter 63

Chapter 63 – Love You

Qin Chen joked that Xu Jian was a cat demon, and Xu Jian answered him with a slightly speechless look.

After living for more than 20 years, it’s clear to Xu Jian whether he is a human being or not.

Before the car accident, Xu Jian never meowed nor could understand cat language.

In fact, even now, Xu Jian can’t understand cat language after he changes to a human, and there’s still a communication barrier between humans and cats.

Seeing that Xu Jian no longer frowned like a little old man, Qin Chen raised his chin at him, “Before you turn into a cat, do you want to brush your teeth and wash your face first?”

Xu Jian took out his phone and looked at the time, and replied, “You go first, Chen Doudou was looking for me just now. I’ll have a chat with him.”

Qin Chen heard this name from Xu Jian before. “Is it your good friend from the time you were in Ancient?”

“Yes.” Xu Jian lowered his head and tapped on his phone without raising his head, “He also likes Teacher Shen. Just now, I asked for two autographed photos and told him.”

After hearing Xu Jian’s words, Qin Chen stared at the hair whorl on his head for a few seconds, but finally said nothing and went to wash up first.

Xu Jian sent a video call invitation to Chen Doudou, which was answered after a few seconds of ringing.

When Chen Doudou saw Xu Jian’s face, the first thing he said was, “Erjian, have you finally come out of MLM?”[1]Multi-level marketing or a pyramid scheme

Xu Jian didn’t know whether to laugh or cry, “I told you, I didn’t enter MLM.”

Chen Doudou: “For a long time, you only sent messages without seeing anyone and you also didn’t say where you were, bubbling like a fake corpse.[2]to come back unexpectedly I thought you’ve been tricked into MLM.”

Chen Doudou has some baby fat cheeks, a baby face, big eyes, white skin, and two dimples when he smiles. He has a well-behaved look that can harvest a vote from mother fans.

It’s a pity that he, like Xu Jian, isn’t popular. Not to mention the true feelings of mother fans, he doesn’t even have two fans.

Xu Jian said solemnly, “If I really enter MLM, then I would’ve definitely contacted you frequently.”

Chen Doudou understood in seconds and he wasn’t angry with him. “Are you going to develop me under you?”

Xu Jian asked instead of answering, “Otherwise?”

Chen Doudou curled his lips, with an understanding expression on his face, “I knew we were plastic brothers!”

Afraid that he would suddenly turn into a cat again while chatting, Xu Jian also didn’t fool around with him, “I’m looking for you today because I have something important to say to you.”

Seeing Xu Jian’s serious face, Chen Doudou subconsciously asked, “You have no money again?”

Before Xu Jian shook his head to deny, Chen Doudou said, “My last film’s salary is given. Except for the share, there are more than 20,000 yuan. I’ll give you to use them first?”

Although Xu Jian didn’t say anything, Chen Doudou knew that he hadn’t gone home, and he couldn’t get in touch with him these days, so he guessed that Xu Jian hasn’t found a job to stabilize.

When wandering outside, no stable job means no stable income, so Chen Doudou worries about Xu Jian starving to death on the streets one day.

Seeing Chen Doudou had misunderstood, Xu Jian hurriedly shook his head, “I’m not looking for you to borrow money, it’s good news.”

Chen Doudou’s eyes lit up, “You’ve found a new company?”

Xu Jian: “… No.”

Chen Doudou’s shoulder collapsed, “Then what is it?”

Xu Jian smiled mysteriously and deliberately lowered his voice, “I got Shen Xi’s autograph for you!”

The listless Chen Doudou subconsciously spoke, “Oh…? Uh—”

Chen Doudou: “Ho** s!*&-! Really? Where did you get it? Have you met my idol?”

Listening to Chen Doudou’s suddenly elevated tone and shocked expression, Xu Jian playfully took two signed photos and waved them in front of the camera. He didn’t answer his series of questions but asked, “Want it?”

Chen Doudou hurriedly nodded his head, “Want!”

Old god Xu Jian was in, “Beg me.”

Chen Doudou had no integrity, blurting out, “I beg you, Father Jian.”

Xu Jian was satisfied. “When I have time, I will send it to you to the company.”

Chen Doudou was excited and howled in his throat, “Ahhhh, I love you so much!!”

Chen Doudou’s voice was so loud that Qin Chen heard him passionately confessing his love for Xu Jian through the door.

Qin Chen’s hand paused and turned his head to look outside the door, with a seamless frown —

Love you?
 
Is this what good friends say to each other?


When Qin Chen came out, Xu Jian had just hung up the video call and turned his head when he heard the movement, “You’re done washing?”

Qin Chen gave a slight nod, “En.

Xu Jian got up. “Then I’ll go in.”

After Xu Jian went inside, looking at the two pictures he put on the coffee table and the words Shen Xi on them with eloquent calligraphy, Film Emperor Qin doubted his popularity and strength for the first time:

Is he not as popular as Shen Xi or is he not as good at acting as Shen Xi?
 
Why did this little heartless never ask him for an autograph?


For a moment, Qin Chen even wanted to throw the brightly smiling Shen Xi into the trash, but fortunately, he held back.

Forget it, so what if it’s his idol? The little heartless didn’t tell Shen Xi about his human and cat thing, only he knows.

Compared to his idol, Xu Jian obviously trusts him more.

Thinking of this, Qin Chen felt it didn’t matter anymore.

He was even a little happy in his heart.

…………

The next day, Xu Jian finally didn’t wake up in Qin Chen’s arms because he slept on the sofa.

Xu Jian appeared as a person in front of Xiao Nan and the others this time. After arriving at the hotel, he originally wanted to open a room for himself but was stopped by Qin Chen.

Facing Xu Jian’s unfathomable gaze at that time, Qin Chen explained at a volume that only the two of them could hear, “It’s not convenient for you to be alone at night after you turn into a cat. Besides, you don’t want the room cleaning staff to see a bed full of cat fur every time they clean it, right?”

Xu Jian: “……” Good point.

In the end, Xu Jian still shared a room with Qin Chen. When Xiao Nan saw this, she looked at them with meaningful eyes, with an expression of ‘no need to explain, I understand’.

On the other hand, Pan Min thought— it seems that Qin Chen is really optimistic about this seedling, Xu Jian. In order to sign him, he sacrificed to this extent.

Although she thought so in her heart, Pan Min felt that it was somewhat ridiculous for them to open a room together. But before she can say anything, she heard Xu Jian say that he slept on the sofa at night.

Pan Min had nothing to say. After thinking about it again, it’s not a big deal for two big men to share a room. Even a scandal won’t come out, they’re not a single man and a woman alone together.

Luckily, the hotel sofa is big enough. Otherwise, with Xu Jian’s 181cm height, sleeping on the sofa all night will be very suffocating.

When Qin Chen came out, Xu Jian had already tidied up and folded the quilt neatly on the sofa.

Qin Chen, who had purposely set his alarm clock and woke up half an hour earlier than usual, saw a neatly dressed Xu Jian and was silent for two seconds before asking, “Why are you up so early today?”

Qin Chen’s tone was a bit regretful, so Xu Jian looked at him confusedly. “Early?”

Qin Chen shook his head, “It’s nothing.”

Until he finished breakfast, Xu Jian didn’t know what exactly Qin Chen was being regretful of.

Is it because he got up ten minutes earlier than him?
 
This person is so petty? No one is allowed to get up earlier than him?

After eating breakfast and going to the set, Xu Jian followed Qin Chen like a small tail as usual. One was to learn from the crew and observe Qin Chen, and two was because his idol was also there.

Now everyone in the crew thinks that Xu Jian is an artist that Leyu is about to sign. He followed Qin Chen to get acquainted and expand his network, so it’s not surprising to see him again. Some people even took the initiative to greet him.

Qin Chen didn’t bring the cat this time. Everyone was a little surprised and some people smiled and asked him about the cat.

Hearing this, Qin Chen swept a glance at Xu Jian, who was chatting with Shen Xi, not far away. He pressed down the corner of his mouth and indifferently said, “Liked the new and hated the old, and ran away with others.”

The person who asked the question: “?”

Based on Qin Chen’s tone, the person could hear that he wasn’t in a good mood and smiled embarrassedly. It’s not good to ask whether he really ran away or was joking. He found a reason to excuse himself and quickly fled the scene.

Later, the person who asked the question described Qin Chen’s tone and expression when he said this to others, “Wah. Teacher Qin’s expression at that time, tsk tsk, what I knew is that his cat ran away, but if I didn’t know, it’s as if his wife ran away with someone.”

The transition scene was prepared by the props team long ago. The equipment and actors can start shooting at any time after they are in place. The first two days went smoothly, but there was a problem on the third day.

A special actor accidentally broke his leg while skateboarding with other people on the set. He went to the hospital for an X-ray and said that he had a bone fracture.

The doctor advised him to have a good rest and not to jump around before his bones healed for a hundred days after a serious injury.

But the problem is, although the special actor’s role isn’t heavy, his identity in the play is a mid-level boss, and he has two action scenes with the male lead played by Qin Chen. How can he shoot if he doesn’t jump?

The actor couldn’t film with a plaster on his leg, and the director was immediately anxious when he heard the news, “Can’t shoot anymore? Then what should we do?”

I can’t find a suitable person to replace him ah.

The assistant director was also embarrassed, “But his bone is fractured. Not to mention whether he can film, what if the actor is left with a medical condition?”

And the effect will certainly be greatly reduced.

The director was silent after hearing this. His body is the revolution’s capital.[3]fig. good health is a prerequisite for work [Mao Zedong’s saying]Although he was anxious, he’s not so insane as to let the actor with a plaster go into battle.

Don’t talk about injuries, working is dedication. If there is something wrong with your body, everything will be in vain.

Just when he was in a dilemma, Xu Jian’s figure holding water flash past in front of the assistant director.

He stared at Xu Jian’s upright posture for two seconds, his legs were 1.8m long. Finally, the assistant director’s eyes lit up, “Brother Chen, I have an idea, see if it’s okay?”

Brother Chen, that is, the Chief Director, looked at him, “What?”

Unless an actor falls from the sky, it’s not good news in his opinion.

The director is also quite depressed. The filming of this movie wasn’t too good. First, the problem with the third male lead, and now a bone fracture…

The assistant director leaned into the director’s ear and whispered for a while, but finally, the director hesitantly looked at him, “Is this okay?”

The assistant director was also not sure, “Desperate times calls for desperate measures. I can’t think of any other way for the time being. If it doesn’t work, then we’ll talk about it again.”

The director carefully thought for a while and finally hardened his heart and nodded, “Okay, you go to negotiate, the salary is not a problem. As long as the acting skills are acceptable, don’t ask too much.”

Assistant director: “Okay, I’ll ask.”

…………

Ten minutes later, Xu Jian looked at Qin Chen in surprise. “You said let me act?”

Qin Chen nodded, “The director wants you to try it.”

Just now, the assistant director found Qin Chen and urgently asked him if Xu Jian could save the day and try the role for the mid-level boss.

Xu Jian was dumbfounded, “Why?”

He is just a small actor who is such a flop. What’s more, he has now terminated his contract with Ancient; he’s not even an actor. Xu Jian couldn’t understand why the director would look for him.

Although the role isn’t much, he is also a little boss with a famous surname ah. Isn’t the assistant director so sloppy in picking people?

At that time, Qin Chen also asked the same question to the assistant director. The latter laughed and replied, “Leyu signs people based on strength and we believe in Leyu’s actors.”

After hearing Qin Chen’s explanation, Xu Jian understood. “The director thinks I’m a newcomer to your company?”

Qin Chen nodded, “As far as the current situation is concerned, that’s right.”

Xu Jian felt that this was a big misunderstanding, his expression was a little anxious, “You didn’t explain to the director? I’m now a 3 NOs.”

Qin Chen was slightly stunned, “What do you mean by 3 NOs?”

Xu Jian counted with his fingers, “No company, no popularity, and no agent. In short, 3 NOs.”

After counting, Xu Jian was still a bit disheartened, so he weakly raised his eyes to Qin Chen and said, “You can explain it to the director, I can’t do it.”

Looking at the wilting Xu Jian for a long time, Qin Chen still said unhurriedly, “I think this is an opportunity for you.”

Xu Jian looked up, “Huh?”

Meeting Xu Jian’s puzzled gaze, Qin Chen asked, “Are you going to give up your dream of being an actor?”

Xu Jian was stunned at his words.

Because of his dream of becoming an actor, Xu Jian didn’t miss every class. He and Chen Doudou improvised in the dormitory for six years, even if Chen Doudou was always the only one in the audience…

Before Xu Jian could speak, he heard Qin Chen say in a deep voice, “No need to explain it to the directors and the others. If it’s a misunderstanding, so be it. You can do a good job.”

“Mr. Xu, I’m looking forward to working with you.”
