The party had not officially started. The guests present were talking in small groups. The time before the opening is the best time to pull in investment. The faces of the swaying ladies and the men in suits and shoes are impeccable. With their sincere smiles, everyone seems to be best friends for many years.

Yu Siyang followed Xue Chengxiu, holding a champagne glass as a prop, surrounded by a group of entertainment company bosses. All-Star Entertainment is a competitor, but Hengsheng Capital, which backss All-Star Entertainment, is the purpose of the collection of this group of entertainment industry leaders.

However, business is discussed in the hidden meanings. In such an occasion, it is just a mix of familiarity and friendship.

The big guys of the entertainment company wanted to be familiar with Xue Chengxiu, and Yu Siyang took this opportunity to brush up with these big guys.

“Mr Xue is young and promising, and the artist in his hand is also promising.”

Mu Zhifeng’s face is round and fleshy, his eyebrows are thick, and there are two deep dents in the middle of the eyebrows. This shows that this person has a bad temper. He always smiled to hide his hostility.

At first glance, his words seemed to compliment Xue Chengxiu and Yu Siyang, but after thinking about it, they were a bit ridiculous.

Everyone knows that Xue Chengxiu is the chairman of the Hengsheng Group. All Star Entertainment is only part of the business chain of Hengsheng. Saying Yu Siyang as an artist in Xue Chengxiu’s hands, is it not making fun of the relationship between the two or something?!

Yu Siyang couldn’t hear it, and Xue Chengxiu naturally couldn’t show that he heard it. He raised the champagne glass in his hands and said, “General Manager Mu is kind, and my younger brother relies on General Manager Mu to take care of him.”

Hearing these words, the big guys all looked like they wanted to laugh but had to resist.

Who doesn’t know that the film invested by Fengyu Times had popularized the artists who are not under his banner and has successfully established a foothold in the film circle for them. Ji Man, who is highly praised by him, is still criticized for having zero acting skills. The old drama bone said in public that “Ji Man is the actress who most want to cooperate with”, and another potential actor was sold to Jiace by him. This joke made them laugh for many days.

“Poisonous Delicacy” beat the movies of the same period and made a lot of money for Fengyu. Fengyu had made money, but other companies had not earned or lost money. Naturally, they are willing to watch Fengyu’s joke.

The big guys in the entertainment industry are also humans, and they also have gossipy hearts.

They just wanted to know if Mu Zhifeng beat his chest in regret when no one was there.

Among those who have become popular with movies invested by Fengyu, the most popular is the young man in front of him who has been turned into a “sister-in-law” by Xue Chengxiu. Several bigwigs changed their carelessness and looked at the young man seriously.

The teenager is very young. He has a little childishness on his face. He is tall, thin and slender, with delicate facial features that are very recognizable. His eyes are pure and clear as if they have been washed with water. The light gray British suit on his body made him look noble and elegant like a little prince.

Whether the suit was readymade clothing or tailored, it can be seen that it is made by famous artists specializing in fashion. Naturally, they recognize that the young man is wearing P&H high-end wear created by the master Philip Hill.

“Master Philip Hill would be surprised if he sees you,” Xu Yan, the editor-in-chief of “MODE Impression”, followed his CEO to brush himself up in Xue Chengxiu’s presence, but now he can’t think of Xue Chengxiu, and his eyes are burning after looking at Yu Siyang. “The suits he designed by himself can be worn by very few people, but they are tailor-made for you.”

“Xu, I heard you talking about me.”

The few people who were speaking together heard a weird voice. Speak of Cao Cao, Cao Cao is here[1], and the speaker is Philip Hill.

Xu Yan walked over and hugged him quickly, “Phil, why are you here?”

“I’m on vacation in China, and a friend asked me to come and play.” Philip Hill’s Chinese pronunciation is very strange, and it made people listening not understand him.

“Phil, you absolutely can’t believe that there is someone in this world who can wear a suit you personally designed so perfectly,” Xu Yan said while turning sideways, motioning Philip Hill to look over, “Your design is too tricky, if it weren’t for you inheriting BSL, P&H alone would have definitely made you lose even your pants.”

At this time Philip Hill could not hear what Xu Yan was saying. He stared at Yu Siyang with eyes having a look as if he had been hungry for a week. And he was a feast cooked by a three-Michelin-star chef.

“God’s masterpiece.” Philip Hill exclaimed, turning around Yu Siyang three times to the left and then three times to the right.

This is what his suit looked like in his mind.

Thin but not too thin, the raised waistline must match the slender legs, the temperament must be clear and pure, the gestures must be elegant, there should be no trace of baby fat on the face, then it is perfect.

“What’s your name?” As soon as Philip Hill grasped Yu Siyang’s hand, Yu Siyang took his hand back and hid behind Xue Chengxiu unconsciously. It meant that if you are sick, take medicine and don’t give up treatment!

Xue Chengxiu was very satisfied with the teenager’s subconscious avoidance action and guarded his own child behind him like a guardian. “Mr. Hill, the party has already begun. If there is anything you can tell this brother’s manager later.”

Philip Hill’s sight was blocked. He looked at the man who stopped him, “Ah-I know you, Mr. Xue of Heng Sheng.”

Xue Chengxiu nodded coldly, turned around and said something to Yu Siyang, then patted his shoulder and told him: “Go to your seat and sit down.”

The organizers gave Yu Siyang the seats at the same table with all the popular first-tier traffic actors. Although Yu Siyang is now only a quasi-second tier, there is a chain of contempt in the entertainment circle today. The TV circle is worse than the movie circle, and the music circle is even more degraded. Secondly, the front line of these tablemates is all popular in the TV circle, but they can’t get past that threshold to the movie circle.

Yu Siyang, who debuted on the big screen, was at the same table with them, and was brought by Zhan Heng. At least there was no dissatisfaction on his face. As for the private thoughts, it was their own business.

Facing strangers, Yu Siyang often did not know how to take the initiative to talk to others. None of these people could be named by him. After saying hello, he sat quietly and stared at the stage intently.

The guests at the venue were arranged in round tables. Xue Chengxiu sat at the main table on the left in the middle of the first row. The people at the same table were basically the big guys who just spoke.

These people are all human beings. Seeing Xue Chengxiu solemnly introduced Yu Siyang to them, and also called Yu Siyang his “brother”, but not asking him to their table or asking the organiser to add a seat, it became clear. What is the relationship between Xue Chengxiu and that boy? The boy is very important to Xue Chengxiu, and he can’t be scorned.

The CEO of “MODE Impression” raised a glass to Xue Chengxiu, “When will Mr. Xue’s younger brother come to shoot a set of covers for our magazine, how about it?” These words sounded well, but Xue Chengxiu did not easily promise. He just said: “It’s a blessing for my younger brother to get into Zhang’s eyes. When he has time, I will ask my younger brother if he wants to.”

Mr. Zhang smiled and stopped talking, watching intently at what the host was introducing on the stage.

The Esquire charity gala offered a wide variety of lots. Advertising resources, master paintings, celebrities’ shoes, bags and clothing, etc. are all voluntarily donated for auction, and the donations are also by big-name celebrities. Even such a popular artist like Yu Siyang is not eligible to donate yet.

At this time, the host on the stage was introducing a set of pottery works, which are the pottery sculptures specially made by famous contemporary ceramic masters for the party. A group of ten kittens with different poses, all of them are extremely cute.

When Yu Siyang saw this group of pottery cats, he liked it. When he heard the bidding price of 50,000 yuan and every necessary increment of 1,000, he was immediately stunned.

It is good but expensive!

“Do you like this group of sculptures?”

Yu Siyang turned his head, looked at the woman in the white skirt who was talking to him in surprise, nodded, “Very cute.”

“It’s really cute.” The woman in the white skirt stretched out her hand and said, “Hello, my name is Zou Bimeng. “

“Hello, my name is Yu Siyang.” Yu Siyang shook hands with her quickly.

“I know, I watched your acting. Your acting skills are good.”

“Thank you, thank you.”

Yu Siyang was embarrassed. He hadn’t seen Zou Bimeng’s work and couldn’t think of how to return the compliment.

He didn’t like to watch TV dramas. He occasionally watched movies. He spent most of the time reading books. Therefore, he only knows a few famous movie stars, like Zhan Heng and Yi Jiaojiao, TV actors, except for a few very famous old opera bones, he didn’t know anyone else. Zou Bimeng, the new queen of ratings, is a passerby in Yu Siyang’s eyes.

Zou Bimeng wasn’t disgusted, but eagerly found a topic to chat with Yu Siyang.

“You are shooting now. I watched the stills and look forward to the movie’s release.”

“Well, I’m also looking forward to it.”

Yu Siyang ended the topic with a single sentence.

“Is the director Liu Cai strict? I heard that film directors are very strict with actors.”

“Alright.”

“Has he scolded you?”

“No.”

“If I have the opportunity to be directed by Liu Cai, I’m even willing to have no lines.”

“Oh.”

“…”

Yu Siyang brought the conversation to death again.

Zou Bimeng could see that Yu Siyang was really unfamiliar and couldn’t find a topic to talk about and was not deliberately cold or negligent.

But because of this, she feels even more unable to start a conversation, she really wants to have a good relationship with Yu Siyang.

Not to mention the man who led him to the big guys before the party started. She specifically inquired about him; he was the chairman of Heng Sheng. She thought that Zhan Heng’s support to him alone was enough to make most people in the circle jealous.

With such high-quality resources, if she doesn’t make a good relationship with him when he is not yet popular, is it possible to wait until he is unattainable?

While Zou Bimeng was pulling Yu Siyang to chat, the pottery kitten on the stage were taken away for 2.4 million.

Yu Siyang’s face was upright, but his heart was screaming. The kitten set was so expensive, I don’t know which local tyrant took it away, the evil rich man.

The lot on the stage was replaced by a silver necklace with a very unique design. Zou Bimeng liked it very much at first glance, and immediately raised the placard for the price, and finally stopped forcing Yu Siyang to chat.

Here, Zou Bimeng went to bid, and Xiao Xianrou, who was sitting on the other side of Yu Siyang, came over to talk to him.

He didn’t know what kind of mentality the people at this table had. They had filmed together, they knew each other, and they chatted with each other. They didn’t talk when they saw Yu Siyang’s high-cold appearance, so they didn’t try to bring him into the conversation. After Zou Bimeng became the first person to eat crabs[2], everyone came to chat with Yu Siyang.

Even if Yu Siyang ended the topic at every turn, they all pulled him, and they talked vigorously with each other.

As a last resort, Yu Siyang could only continue his awkward chatting work, while bringing the conversations to death, all the while calculating in his heart when the party will end.

He’s really suffering.

At about 11:30 in the night, the party ended. Yu Siyang breathed a sigh of relief, exchanged phone numbers and WeChat with the people at the table, and after a polite farewell, found Xue Chengxiu and went home with him.

Sitting in the car, he couldn’t help but spit out: “Those people can really talk. They dragged me to talk for a few hours, and I didn’t know what to say. They had endless topics. I felt embarrassed. I don’t even know how to chat.”

“It’s okay, just ignore them if you don’t like it.” Xue Chengxiu patted his hair comfortably.

“How can I really ignore it?” Yu Siyang muttered softly, and then immediately changed the subject, “Tonight there was a set of pottery kittens, which were super cute. They went for more than two million. I don’t know which local tyrant got them.”

“Liked that kitten?” Xue Chengxiu asked.

“Yeah.” Yu Siyang nodded vigorously, “Unfortunately, I don’t have money to buy it. It’s too expensive. I have no more than 20 yuan.”

Xue Chengxiu chuckled and motioned to the bodyguard sitting in the co-pilot to bring the box over, “Open it and take a look. Is it this set?” The bodyguard immediately handed a bamboo square from the front seat to the back, and Yu Siyang took it with great care, put it on his lap, and untied the tie.

The square gift box was filled with dark red velvet, and ten pottery kittens of different shapes lay on the velvet.

“Mr. Xue, you bought this?!” The expression on Yu Siyang’s face gradually changed from surprise to happiness. He took out a sleeping kitten from the box and placed it in his palm, admiring: “So cute.”

“I knew you would like it, so I took it.” Xue Chengxiu also took out a paw-licking kitten from the box and poked the kitten in the face of his child.

Yu Siyang’s eyes turned into two crescent moons, and there seemed to be bright stars in his eyes, dazzling others, “Aren’t you just having a good heart?”

“Yes, there is a good heart.” Xue Chengxiu said in a low voice, his eyes deep and moving, and there seemed to be endless words in it as if he still wanted to say something more.

Yu Siyang stared at his eyes blankly for a long while, suddenly lowered his head, picked up another squatting kitten, and said in a concealed manner: “These cats, Mu Mu will definitely like them. I will put on his bedside tonight. He must be very happy to see it when he woke up early in the morning.”

Xue Chengxiu chuckled: “You can decide. It was specially bought for you.”

Yu Siyang tried hard to restrain the urge to cover his ears. He felt that it was really inexplicable. Why did he feel that Mr. Xue’s laughter is sexy?!
