Assistant Xu felt that there might be something wrong with his ears.
He quickly raised his head to glance at Ji Chen, then hurriedly lowered his head again, only his voice was slightly unsettled, “President Ji, you have a very important international meeting……”
“Postpone it.”Ji Chen didn’t even hesitate. “Just say that I have an urgent matter to do. Also, be sure to bring Li Huacheng to me.”
Assistant Xu nodded, knowing that Ji Chen had already made up his mind. He would naturally not say anything more as an assistant. Assistant Xu quickly retreated to arrange things, but in his heart, he was full of complaints—— President Ji, since you like Miss Jiang so much, why did you bother to back out of the marriage in first place?
Assistant Xu still couldn’t understand what Boss Ji was thinking even today.
He moved very fast and it didn’t take long to arrange everything.
“President Ji, everything has been set.” Assistant Xu respectfully reported to Ji Chen, “Sir Li has also been contacted. He agrees to participate in the reality show, but needed to talk to you first.”
No sooner than Assistant Xu’s words had fallen that Ji Chen’s personal phone rang. Ji Chen raised his brows, signaled Assistant Xu to go out first, and immediately connected the phone. “Hello?”
“Ji Chen, why did you suddenly think of participating in a variety show?” Li Huacheng was on the other end of the phone, his voice filled with laughter, “Is it because of that young lady of the Jiang family?”
Originally, Li Huacheng was just joking, but he didn’t expect Ji Chen on the opposite side to be silent. After a while, the smile on the actor’s face gradually froze. He sat up straight from the deck chair. “No way? Ji Chen, have you lost your mind?”
Are you serious? If you really want to marry Jiang Baiwan, why did you backed out before?
Ji Chen pursed his lips. “Watch the time. Don’t be late.” Then he hung up.
Li Huacheng looked at the mobile phone in his hand, and after a moment of daze, he quickly contacted his assistant, “Quickly, book me a plane ticket back to China. The earliest flight!”
Jiang Baiwan carefully hid the card Chu Yunhan gave her before going to the director. She felt so happy right now; the happiness of a rich person beyond ones imagination.
From a distance, the director saw Jiang Baiwan running towards him like a bird released out of a cage. Thinking of the phone call made by President Ji just now, he felt the cold sweat on his face come down again.
“Director.” Jiang Baiwan ran up to him. “I have something to tell you.”
The fat director quickly put on a smile on his face. “Miss Jiang, what’s the matter? If there’s anything you need, we can provide it as necessary.”
“No, no.” Jiang Baiwan smiled. “Director, I just want to tell you that the conditions here are really too bad. I want to discuss quitting the show.”
The director took a deep breath. He didn’t dare guess what the relationship between Jiang Baiwan and the big boss was. After pondering for a while, he said, “Miss Jiang, did you carefully read the contract when you signed?”
Jiang Baiwan was taken aback. Thinking of her attitude when Han Ling came with the contract, her expression shifted a bit. “……Is there any problem? At worst, I won’t receive payment for yesterday’s issue.”
The director sighed. “Miss Jiang, it’s not that simple. We will pay you once the show is finished, but if you take the initiative to withdraw halfway, our contract stipulates that you have to pay compensation for breaching it.”
Breach of contract? Jiang Baiwan was stunned for a moment. She looked at him suspiciously. “Director, you’re not lying to me, are you?”
“That was what’s written Miss Jiang, why would I lie to you?” The director said without even blushing. “If you’re not sure, you can ask the other guests.”
Jiang Baiwan looked at the other side’s confident appearance and couldn’t help but start to doubt herself. However, upon thinking of Chu Yunhan’s five million, Jiang Baiwan gritted her teeth and said, “That…… How much will I have to pay?”
The fat director smiled slightly. “Twenty million.”
“What did you say?!” Jiang Baiwan’s voice suddenly rose, then quickly lowered, “Why not just rob me?!”
The director was full of helplessness. “Miss Jiang, this was clearly stated in the original contract. The reason why liquidated damages are proposed is to ensure that you will not quit the show halfway.”
Jiang Baiwan: “……”
She suffered the loss of not reading the contract. But now it was too late to regret. If she stayed in this program, she could still get a small fee. If she quit now, she would have to find seven million more to pay the director.
After recognizing this fact, Jiang Baiwan let out a muffled “Oh” and left. She was still a bit reluctant to give up, so she ran into Tan Mi’s house and asked her quietly, “Tan Mi, do you know that if you quit the show midway, you will have to pay a penalty?”
“I know.” Tan Mi looked at her like as if she was looking at a fool. “It’s written in the contract. Everyone knows.”
Jiang Baiwan was stunned. “Everyone knows?” Everyone knew that if they quit midway, they would have to pay twenty million in liquidated damages? Were these people crazy? Why would they sign such a contract?!
Jiang Baiwan looked at Tan Mi very sadly, thinking in her heart how the five million she just gotten and hadn’t yet warmed up in her hand, had to be returned. Why didn’t she look carefully at the contract back then? Jiang Baiwan only felt that the world had lost its color. After thanking the other party listlessly, she turned around and walked towards the door.
Tan Mi called out from behind her, “Why are you asking about it?”
“Nothing.” Jiang Baiwan prevaricated. Before going out, she stopped again. “Tan Mi, does the special guest also know about the penalty?”
Tan Mi raised an eyebrow and put down the comb in her hand. “Everyone who comes to the show is required to sign a contract.”
Jiang Baiwan gritted her teeth. “Okay, thanks.”
Chu Yunhan! You liar who played with my feelings!
That night, when Jiang Baiwan was sleeping, she dreamed of five million bills flying with wings away from her.
Chu Yunhan’s day as a special guest was a bit awkward at first, but with Shui Lan’er by his side, everything became acceptable. After Jiang Baiwan took the five million and promised to quit the show, Chu Yunhan’s mood became better.
But the next morning, when it was almost time for Chu Yunhan to depart, Jiang Baiwan still hadn’t left. Chu Yunhan glanced at Jiang Baiwan from time to time, and his mood, which was originally quite bright, gradually became unpleasant again.
——Was Jiang Baiwan planning to go back on her word? Sure enough, it was a mistake to trust this sinister and wicked woman!
“Yunhan?” Shui Lan’er who was standing beside Chu Yunhan felt his mood changing. She held his hand with some concern. “What’s wrong?”
Chu Yunhan smiled reassuringly at Shui Lan’er. “It’s nothing, Lan’er. I’m just a little bit reluctant to part with you.”
Standing by the side, Jiang Baiwan’s ears twitched. After one night, she looked rather sluggish. However, her pair of eyes was piercing and she was now staring at Chu Yunhan. If eyes could kill, Chu Yunhan would have been poked into a sieve long ago.
Tan Mi, who was next to Jiang Baiwan, glanced at her subconsciously, and was startled by the dark circles under her eyes. “What did you do last night? Did you fight with someone?”
Jiang Baiwan grinded her teeth hard. She squeezed out a few words, “It’s nothing. Keep your nose out of it.”
Chu Yunhan could feel the stare on his back. Jiang Baiwan’s eyes full of resentment seemed real. Let alone him, even everyone present could feel it.
“What’s the matter with you?” Chu Yunhan couldn’t ignore it in the end, and could only reluctantly ask Jiang Baiwan.
Unexpectedly, because of this sentence, Jiang Baiwan, who was still desperately enduring just now, couldn’t control her anger. She furiously came towards Chu Yunhan in a few steps, took out the bank card from her pocket, and threw it in front of him.
“Chu Yunhan, you liar! How could you play with my feelings?!”
As soon as Jiang Baiwan said these words, the surroundings became completely silent. Everyone was shocked, and only the director was so excited that he quickly and quietly asked all the live cameras to take close-ups of Jiang Baiwan and Chu Yunhan.
In the live broadcast room, the number of comments filled the entire screen at once. Most of the people were shouting 【Awesome】, while all of them were imagining a big drama—— What exactly did Chu Yunhan do to Jiang Baiwan? Did he used and dumped her? Or was he stepping on two boatstwo-timing?
Chu Yunhan’s handsome face had turned black as the bottom of the pot, but Jiang Baiwan on the opposite side was very righteous. She raised her chin and said unashamedly, “Is there anything wrong with what I said?!”
You knew that I would have to pay twenty million! But you actually didn’t tell me!
Chu Yunhan gritted his teeth. He took a deep breath, “Jiang Baiwan, you—”
However, before Chu Yunhan could finish his sentence, he was interrupted by the sudden sound of a car engine.
Everyone followed the sound and saw a black luxury car parked at the intersection. After the door opened, two men appeared in front of their eyes.
The bullet screen began to explode again.
【Sh*t, sh*t, sh*t, sh*t! Movie King Li Huacheng! How did Li Huacheng come to this show?!】
【Isn’t Li Huacheng on vacation abroad?! Why did he suddenly come back?!】
【The program group have a gold minesuper rich; extravagant with money ah! They can even invite movie kings!】
However, Jiang Baiwan looked at the man next to Li Huacheng with a frightened face. As if he had telepathic connection with her, Ji Chen suddenly raised his face and his eyes collided with Jiang Baiwan’s across the air.
——It was the man who gave her the check that day! Why did he come to this show?!
Jiang Baiwan was screaming inside. The aura she had while facing Chu Yunhan just now was swept away, and the only thing she could think about was how to get away without attracting attention.
Looking at Jiang Baiwan’s appearance like she would run away at any given time, Ji Chen slowly raised the corners of his mouth and showed Jiang Baiwan a stiff but ‘well-meaning’ smile.
