My Wife is My Life! - Chapter 171
Her voice sounded slightly hoarse and she laid back on the chair already tired from the exchange.
The makeup artist opened up the makeup kit and started applying makeup on her.
A few of the buttons on the collar of Ji Qingqing’s pajamas had loosened, but she didn’t realize it as it was still early in the morning. Laying back, her white neck and smooth collar bones revealed faint red marks along the neck.
Instinctively, she scratched it with her hands.
The makeup artist noticed it while applying the makeup and asked, “Sister Qingqing, your neck…”
Ji Qingqing opened up her collar and glanced at it in the mirror. The few red marks on her neck were pretty noticeable, and they were slightly itchy.
She pondered for a few seconds. It seemed like she had some slight symptoms when she first arrived at the filming location, but she didn’t pay much attention to it because it hadn’t been too severe at the time. Now, thinking about it, it could be caused by the poor quality of the filming costume’s material, together with the mud that she got on her when filming the mud scene the previous day.
“Allergy. Help me to cover it up with foundation,” she said as she thought of the tattered clothes that she will be wearing today for one of the scenes.
“… Oh, okay.”
Wen Rou and the makeup artist looked at each other and exchanged looks back and forth. Their expressions went from understanding and confirming each other’s thoughts to a sudden realization.
So ‘that’ was the reason, as to why President Lu requested a leave for Sister Qingqing so early in the morning.
Usually, when a man and a woman stayed together in the same room, it would be normal for something to happen between them.
Though, President Lu seemed a bit too unreasonable. Sister Qingqing just recovered from a fever. Shouldn’t he hold back just a little?
Wen Rou let out a sigh. A man, no matter how he looks on the outside, can never change their strong lustful natures. She originally thought that he would be different than other men, but now it seems like they are all of the same kind.
Ji Qingqing got in the car and headed towards the filming site after 30 minutes of makeup.
At this time, the filming crew already got started on their work for the day. When Ji Qingqing first arrived, the crew was filming a fighting scene between the two main leads. Of course, no matter how intense the fight was between the two leads, their action would eventually be romanticized.
Ji Qingqing stood at the side and observed for a short while until the scene was successfully filmed. Then she headed over to greet Director Zhou.
“Director Zhou, sorry that I’m late.”
Director Zhou put down his headphones and looked at her worriedly. “Didn’t you request leave in the morning? Why did you come?”
Ji Qingqing cleared her throat and forced a smile. “It was only a fever. I recovered yesterday.”
“What happened to your voice?” Director Zhou knitted his brows and continued, “You’re still not fully recovered? Go back and take good rest if you’re not recovered. Don’t worry. President Lu had already requested leave for you and I’ve delayed your filming parts.”
“It’s fine. There’s no need to move them back. I already recovered. It’s just that…” Ji Qingqing continued to explain reluctantly, “I talked too much last night so my throat might be a bit sore, but it’s not because of the fever.”
“Are you really recovered?”
“Really. I’m fine.”
Director Zhou contemplated for a while. “Fine, then we will film the parts in the order that we discussed last time. Go get yourself changed first and have a good look at the script. I’ll find you later.”
“Ok.” Ji Qingqing let out a sigh of relief.
The second that Director Zhou left, Ji Qingqing went into the car and changed into the tattered clothes. Wen Rou considerately brought over a chair for her to sit down, along with a cup of warm water, and a box of Jinsangzi cough drops.
“Sister Qingqing, remember to get enough rest.” Wen Rou reminded her earnestly.
