Chapter 70: Movie Release!!
As soon as Su Tiantian had left, Ning Wentao collapsed onto a chair and started weeping into his hands. Despite that, he was still trying to comfort Ning Meng.
“Meng Meng, don’t you worry. I will never forfeit my shares to Cao Xuehua. I’ve thought of everything. After resigning, I’ll sell this mansion, and then, you can use the money to invest in the company and be the board chairman.”
1 billion yuan was gone.
Yet, the company still needed to go on, and one could not run a company without money.
Hearing this, Ning Meng comforted him. “Dad, don’t worry. This movie will definitely be huge.”
Ning Wentao tenderly touched the sofa next to him, ignoring what she had said. “This redwood sofa was always your mom’s favorite. If I am to sell the house… I might as well bring this with me.”
“Dad, don’t you believe me?”
Ning Wentao threw a glance at her before he started counting her sins.
“When you were 12 years old, you wanted to invest in making robots. I gave you 1 million yuan. That’s all gone.”
“When you were 15 years old, you wanted to invest in fashion. I gave you 10 million yuan. That’s all gone.”
“When you were 18 years old, you wanted to invest in car racing. I gave you 20 million yuan. That’s all gone.”
“When you were 22 years old, you wanted to invest in the stock market. I gave you 30 million yuan. That’s all gone.”
“And finally, you wanted to invest in E-sports last year. I gave you 50 million yuan. What happened? Poof. That’s all gone too.”
Ning Wentao held his tears back as he said, “How are you going to convince me to believe in you?”
Ning Meng’s mouth was twitching upon hearing this.
“I was so young. How could you have given me so much money?”
Ning Wentao threw her another glare. “Why? Because you’re my daughter. That’s why!”
She knew this man loved his daughter, and yet, she had not realized that he would pamper her that much! She knew now that no matter what she said, he would not believe her, and so, she put a hand on Ning Wentao’s shoulder and comforted him. “Let’s just wait for 10 days first. We’ll see.”
10 days later, “Shifting to Mars” and “The Hero” were finally on the silver screen. Due to Su Tiantian’s involvement with “The Hero”, the movie’s title—”The Hero” was the most searched keywords on Baidu and Sougou. There were countless people singing their praises about the movie, and Su Tiantian’s fans were all boasting about how great their idol’s acting skill was.
On that day, Ning Meng was not at Lemon Entertainment. Instead, she was spending her time drawing at home.
Suddenly, her phone vibrated. It was Qi Shan, and he shared a link in their Wechat group.
Qi Shan: [Some nosy journalist has publicly written about the bad blood you have with Su Tiantian. The article is quite detailed too. Now, there are so many people ridiculing you online! @Ning Meng]
Ning Meng’s mouth twitched after seeing this.
Ning Meng: [It’s understandable. I’m not a banknote, I can’t expect everyone to like me.]
Qi Shan: […]
Qi Shan: [Fine. I’ll see how long can you keep up with this attitude. Oh, maybe… you’re secretly crying in the bathroom, eh? Heh, come on, admit it. Admit it so I can laugh at you.]
Ning Meng: [I’m drawing. In fact, I was drawing you. But… it’s just too bad…]
Qi Shan: [Too bad… what?]
Ning Meng: [Too bad that your face is too thick. I don’t think my canvas can fit you in.]
Qi Shan: […]
After exchanging heated words with Qi Shan, Ning Meng put down her phone and crossed her cold sweaty fingers. To be honest, she was quite anxious.
In the novel, “Shifting to Mars” was said to be “perfect because of its imperfection”. Now, she had fixed and done away with the “imperfections”. Would this movie still do its magic?
Despite how confident she looked, deep down, Ning Meng was still anxious. One small change could send a massive ripple of the butterfly effect. If so, could things still happen like it was supposed to?
A long, dreadful night had finally passed. It was, finally, the day when the box office was out!
