My Wife is My Life! - Chapter 147
Somehow, Ji Qingqing felt that they misunderstood something, but she eventually decided not to explain and just smiled and nodded politely.
For the entire afternoon, Ji Qingqing sat there going through the script to memorize her lines. Occasionally, she would join Director Zhou and listen to him brief Qi Jingyun and Jiang Su on their scenes. The afternoon’s time flew by quickly and soon it was nearing evening. As Qi Jingyun and Jiang Su NGed too many times during the early afternoon, the filming got delayed and her night scenes were pushed to the next day.
Ji Qingqing knocked off early. She felt relieved that she did not have to film, as she herself was a rookie. And having more time to prepare would be good too.
Half an hour later, she arrived at the hotel and headed towards her room. Upon reaching, she remembered that Lu Lixing had changed the room to 2507 and the items in the room had been cleared.
After that, she turned and headed to the 25th floor.
2507 was one of two suites that Tianyu hotel had. It came with a master bedroom, living room, kitchen, and study. Compared to her 2109 single room, it was so much more spacious. And was more than enough for two people.
Afraid of bothering the two, Wen Rou placed Ji Qingqing’s items in the room and left quickly.
Ji Qingqing removed her makeup and went around the room. She spotted Lu Lixing seated at his desk, typing on his keyboard.
“Where’s Si Si?”
Lu Lixing stopped typing. Raising his head, he replied, “I asked someone to bring it to the veterinarian. I’ll bring it in tomorrow.”
Ji Qingqing nodded and asked, “It’s already 7, have you eaten?”
“Alright I’ll call for food then. Oh, and next time don’t order shark fin for me. Wildlife conservation is everyone’s responsibility!”
Lu Lixing smiled and gave an ‘En’ as a reply.
Ji Qingqing picked up the phone and called for food. After the meal, the two people didn’t bother each other. Ji Qingqing held the script and continued rehearsing her lines in the room while Lu Lixing remained in study, handling his work.
For the first day of work, Ji Qingqing felt rather unsettled, especially when she remembered how Director Zhou scolded the crew. It gave her chills. For the sake of avoiding potential embarrassment and screw ups tomorrow night, Ji Qingqing decided to recap the lines which she knew by heart once more. She stayed in the room alone and prepared her emotions.
Gazing at the empty space emotionally, she started to rehearse her lines.
“Why do you not love me, what does she have that I don’t? Do you even know…”
“You know? So all along you have been using me?”
“Has it ever crossed your mind that I would help you if you told me the truth? Why did you just lie and use me!”
“Lu Xichen…” Ji Qingqing brows furrowed. She sighed and looked at the script, something felt amiss.
In the script, Lu Xichen was a cold-blooded character who would stop at nothing to achieve power and influence. He did not even hesitate to use the female side character, who he lacked feelings for. Given such a character, Ji Qingqing immediately imagined Lu Lixing’s face on him.
Just to satisfy his personal desires, he forced her to call him hubby in front of everyone!
“Lu Xichen… No correction, Lu Lixing, if Father didn’t risk his life to take you in then, you would have been killed! For so many years, I thought your stone-cold heart would be warmed by me. But I could never imagine this. You ungrateful, cruel, shameless bastard! LU LIXING! Do you even have a conscience?”
Immersed in her emotions, Ji Qingqing cried out her lines with passion. She clenched her fist and did her utmost to incorporate the feelings of grief that engulfed her character after having found out that it was all an act, that the person she loved had been using her all along.
He was full of shit!
“Lu Lixing, do you even love me?”
“Why do you not love me? What must I do in exchange for your love? I can give you everything, including my life! I love you so much and…”
With a vivid expression, Ji Qingqing raised her voice and cried, “But… Even though you are ungrateful and cruel and shameless. But I…But I…”
Grief-stricken, she turned towards the door.
And when she turned around, she saw Lu Lixing appear before her, right at the door, looking at her with interest.
She wanted to stop her mouth, but it was already too late, she was caught in the surge of emotions.
“But even so, I still love you Lu Lixing!!!”
The room turned quiet instantly.
