My Wife is My Life! - Chapter 218
When they returned back to the Lu house, Lu Lixing recounted the day’s events to Old Lu.
Old Lu was experienced. He had seen all sorts of people and even dealt with them. As for how Lu Lixing handled the matter, he didn’t say much and only replied a single line, “You are a person who is about to get married. It’s about time you take a step back from your work. After many years of work, you should make use of this chance to give yourself a good break.”
Just like how Old Lu put it, Lu Lixing had worked hard for so many years and his work was pretty much integrated into his life. Now that he suddenly became free, he did not know what he was supposed to do.
After dinner, Ji Qingqing received a call from Qin Yue.
On the phone, Qin Yue’s voice sounded hesitant. “The situation is like this. Previously didn’t I tell you about those two variety programs? Well, after the team discussed it, we feel that it’s more suitable for you to attend the survival challenge program. Originally, we had contacted the television station production team, but today, the director of the program called me and told me that the guests for this program have already been selected.”
Ji Qingqing wasn’t too bothered about it. In the entertainment industry, it was common for filming opportunities and drama roles to be snatched. This was not something that was completely guaranteed and you also can’t say that the opportunity is for sure yours.
“But for the dating-related program, I mentioned previously….”
Without waiting for Qin Yue to finish speaking, Ji Qingqing quickly interrupted him. “If it’s about the dating-related program, then nevermind; currently it’s not so suitable for me to attend that.”
Qin Yue obviously knew the reason why Ji Qingqing couldn’t participate in this program. If there were alternative choices, he too wouldn’t have risked his life to move the soil on Lu Lixing’s head.
TL note: ‘Move the soil on someone’s head’ is a Chinese phrase that means offending/going against a powerful person
“Listen to me first, I recently checked the program invitations we have. Now that the policies from above are stricter, there aren’t many variety programs. Since the survival challenge program was snatched by others, the only one left in our hands is this dating program. I know your worries, but you are also clear about our current situation; if we make good use of this program, then there is a chance that we can use it to reverse the situation and completely clear up all the bad impressions. When the program airs, it would be during the same period that your television drama broadcasts too. With all the virality, it would be a very good opportunity for you to make a comeback!”
Even though Qin Yue had described it in a flowery manner and listed the benefits till it was sky high, Ji Qingqing still firmly refused.
This kind of dating program where celebrities who do not know each other cohabitate for three days would definitely require intimate contact, and this may possibly create another scandal. If she was still single it’d be fine, but now the Lu family was currently preparing for the wedding. At this moment, if she went all ‘lovey-dovey’ with another man and let it get broadcasted on television…?
And let’s not get into how this matter would clearly let Lu Lixing wear a green hat. Lu Lixing would definitely kill her; it would be after the program broadcasts—the news of her wedding spreading and once they learn of all this, the fans would certainly scold her to death!
Everything that Ji Qingqing thought about; how could Qin Yue not consider them beforehand. He tested the waters, “How about you try to invite Lu Lixing to attend this program with you and participate in it?”
Lu Lixing and her attending this program together?
Ji Qingqing was taken aback by that suggestion.
What sort of joke is this? How would the busy President Lu who attended to multiple important matters have the time and energy to participate in this kind of program?
Ji Qingqing immediately rejected the suggestion. It was something that didn’t require consideration.
“It’s not possible. Given how busy he is, he won’t have the time. How about this? Brother Qin, if we don’t have the opportunity to attend variety shows, we can put it aside in the meantime. In the future, there will still be other opportunities.”
Seeing Ji Qingqing’s insistence, Qin Yue knew it wouldn’t be easy to persuade her. “Okay, we’ll leave it at that. In the future, if there’s an opportunity, then I’ll notify you again.”
After they casually talked for a bit, Ji Qingqing ended the call.
In her WeChat, Director Zhou had sent her a message informing her that the cast photo was released and asked her to repost it on her Weibo account.
Ji Qingqing opened her Weibo and looked at the drama’s official Weibo account. The latest post posted was the release of the drama’s main cast photo. The photo had been photoshopped and inside it, Ji Qingqing was dressed in red with peach makeup style applied on her face, making her look really pretty and cute.
