“Gold-Medal Screenwriter” director team, in front of the monitor.

The chief director let out a long sigh and buried his face in his hands in despair.

“Director Zhao, what should I do about this?”

“If I knew what to do, would I still sit here and sigh?”

“But this Luo Xiu is too open in front of the camera. After the recording is over, should I find someone to talk to him?”

“Talk to him?”

The director finally raised his head, turning his head with a strange expression: “Who will talk to him, me or you?”

The director’s assistant hesitated: “After all he’s a new actor, so it doesn’t need you to go in person, right? If you’re worried, I’ll make a special trip?”

“You…” The director was annoyed and found it funny as well, “Do you think you’ll make a special trip to send him a message, you can still be wronged, should I praise you?”

“Then, how dare I.”

“If you know you don’t dare, then don’t have random ideas!”

The chief director had a cold face, and the special assistant was startled for a few seconds before he blinked his eyes to react, then he leaned down and asked carefully: “Is there any… big man behind him?”

The chief director hesitated to speak and waved his hand in annoyance for some reason: “This is not something you can worry about. Don’t ask too many questions, learn to be clever yourself.”

The special assistant smiled awkwardly: “Hey.”

[Actor group Luo Xiu, third place out. Gu Nian from the screenwriter team, the hunt was successful.]

A loudspeaker sounded over the dense forest.

The chief director turned back to the monitor: “There is one last place left, the competition should be over soon. After two hours of groping in the woods, they will definitely not be happy to record. You can ask someone to send them back to the room to wash up, and send them lunch.”

“But what about the post-game recording?”

“After three o’clock in the afternoon, arrange costume and make-up for the guests.”

“Okay, Director Zhao.”


In order to make it easier for the guests to rest, lunch was delivered directly to the guests’ respective rooms.

Most areas of the island had been disconnected from the Internet, and the mobile phones and computers distributed by the program group were no different from bricks at the moment. After taking a shower, Gu Nian collapsed on the bed, facing the ceiling of the room.

Although her body had been tossed into a state of collapse by the dense forest CS for more than an hour, she really couldn’t sleep now- thinking about the 200ml cup of devil liquid, and her baby goose’s “fragile” crystal stomach, she had a headache thinking about the supplementary recording in the afternoon.

Gu Nian was tossing and turning on the bed, worrying about what to do when there was a knock on her door.

Gu Nian’s thoughts were deep, and the sudden sound startled her, so she hurriedly sat up on the bed.


The door stopped for a second or two, and a gentle voice came through the door: “It’s me, Luo Xiu.”

Gu Nian immediately got out of bed and opened the door.

The one standing outside was indeed Luo Xiu.

The camouflage uniform was gone, and he had replaced it with a white T-shirt and light gray trousers. He also chose a pair of thin glasses without color frames. He was dressed very casually.

Gu Nian asked in a daze, “Why didn’t you rest in the room?”

Luo Xiu: “Am I disturbing your rest?”

Gu Nian waved her hand immediately: “No, I’m worried that you will not be feeling well.”

Luo Xiu smiled faintly and lowered his eyes to look at her: “Having said that, I’m not as vulnerable as you think. And…”

“And what?”

“Without internet, it’s boring to be alone in a room.”


Gu Nian looked up in doubt.

Luo Xiu paused, “What’s the matter?”

Gu Nian muttered, “Zhu Hanyu told me clearly before that you are the kind of person who can spend a whole afternoon without saying a word to anyone with just a book and a pot of tea.”

With downcast eyes, Luo Xiu smiled softly: “I prepared an excuse all the way, but I didn’t expect it to be exposed so easily.”


“Well, the truth is,” Luo Xiu paused, “I just wanted to find you, there is no other reason.”


Gu Nian froze.

[Only I can be your prey.]

The words that she forcibly ignored in the morning, with some strange and strong emotions that she didn’t see but could detect, suddenly caught up to her again.

Looking at those still gentle and harmless brown eyes, Gu Nian panicked for no reason.

“That, that, are you coming in?”

Gu Nian followed the panic-provoked instinct in her heart, held the door and turned around, wanting to slip into the room first. But as soon as she took a step, the wrist hanging by her side was pulled up.

Gu Nian froze and turned around: “Luo Xiu, what’s wrong with you?”

Luo Xiu sighed softly, “Why do I feel that you seem to be avoiding me?”


“You left very quickly at noon today as well.”

“Ah, Um, isn’t that because I was covered in mud and leaves? I know you have a cleanliness habit, so of course you wouldn’t be chasing you at such a time.”

“…” Luo Xiu looked at her, his brown eyes glinting once or twice. Anyway there was a clear and almost cool emotional texture.

Gu Nian held her breath slightly, she was a bit unaccustomed to the atmosphere between the two of them, she had to say something, otherwise…

Luo Xiu suddenly smiled, gentle and helpless.

Gu Nian was stunned.

When Luo Xiu raised his eyes again, the emotion he showed before was gone. As if it was all her illusion, Luo Xiu just smiled helplessly: “Did the last thing I said this morning scare you?”

The girl came back to her senses and hurriedly denied: “No, I—”

“That’s a line from a script.”


Gu Nian, who had just racked her brains to find an excuse, froze and looked back blankly.

Luo Xiu smiled faintly: “It was a line from a script that my agent sent me before I terminated the contract with Dingke Media.”

Gu Nian continued to be blank.

Luo Xiu: “Before I couldn’t get into the emotion, and with the termination of the contract, I gave up on the script. But I suddenly caught that state in the scene in the morning, so I tried to get into the role.”


After recovering from the complicated emotions, Gu Nian could clearly feel that apart from shock and relief, there was something different in her heart that was hidden at this moment.

Gu Nian intuitively felt that this kind of emotion should not be touched, and it was best not to know it, so she tried her best to ignore it.

“Ah, so it’s just a script line?”

“I wanted to explain to you after the end,” Luo Xiu said softly apologetically, “but I didn’t find you, so I didn’t have time.”

“No wonder.”

Luo Xiu stared at her for a moment. Watching the girl’s every reaction, he had a gentle expression on his face as usual: “Did it really scare you?”

“It’s not like that,” Gu Nian smiled shyly, “I was just a little surprised.”

“Sorry, there won’t be a next time.”

“Next time?”

Gu Nian turned around blankly.

What will happen next time?

Luo Xiu lowered his eyes and seemed to be a little depressed: “Maybe it’s because I do not have a background in acting nor have I majored in it, but I have to empathize with the script before I try it.”

Gu Nian nodded: “I know, this is actually one of your talents. This time you performed very well.”

Luo Xiu: “Well, but in order not to scare you anymore, I will try my best to restrain myself in front of you—there will be no next time.”


Gu Nian came to her senses and stepped back. Then she shook his hand seriously: “No, you can’t restrain yourself! You are just inexperienced in acting, not untalented. If the key feeling of entering the play comes, then a few more experiences will definitely help your acting skills. You may even have great improvement—how can you resist such a precious opportunity?”

“But it will cause trouble to you.”

Gu Nian immediately denied: “Why, I’m a professional screenwriter, so I won’t have any trouble!”



A few seconds later, Gu Nian turned around with a broken expression and burst into tears.

Gu Nian, in order to improve your baby goose’s acting skills, you must hold on, you must withstand the temptation, you must not waver, let alone be hooked beyond the bounds!

Although thinking about the voice and hug in the morning, I still feel that my legs are weak…

It is too difficult to be a firm mother fan.
