Chapter 279: Ride With the Wind
EndlessFantasy Translation EndlessFantasy Translation
When morning arrived, Ning Meng quickly hopped down from her bed and got ready to head out. She had a meeting with Liu Miao at a hotel nearby.
The setting of “The Unforgettable First Crush” was set to be in Jingdu, thus, naturally, they had decided that it would be best for them to film it in the actual city here. Lemon Entertainment had already booked a family suite for Liu Miao and his family before they arrived.
There were a lot of things that they needed to discuss to make this TV drama happen—the cast, locations, and equipment. Of course, Liu Miao had already gotten all these issues in production planned out. All he needed was Ning Meng’s approval and signature on his proposal.
Being a person who liked to delegate duties and responsibilities, Ning Meng was more than happy to let Liu Miao take charge of everything. After about less than 30 minutes, she was already finished with her discussion with Liu Miao and threw herself comfortably onto the nearest sofa while Li Shiyao and Liu Miao continued discussing the script.
Meanwhile, Fei Bai, who had been recently promoted to be Li Shiyao’s bodyguard, stood by the door obediently. Even when standing idly, the man still displayed his intimidating tough-guy demeanor.
Suddenly, Ning Meng could feel her phone vibrating.
Oh, it was from Qi Shan who had started a conversation in the WeChat Group “Happy Idiots”.
Qi Shan: [I’ve been single for far too long. This is driving me mad. Literally.]
Su Ye: [?]
Qi Shan: [Now, when I am eating my breakfast, I can’t stand to see the chopsticks being in pairs. I have the urge to separate them!]
Su Ye: [… good for me, then. I only eat western food for meals.]
Ning Meng: […]
Just what on earth were these two stooges talking about?
Su Ye: [Oh, aren’t you coming to the office? Boss has let you out because Fei Bai is now leaving him to chase after love. You’d better get back here before he changes his mind.]
Qi Shan: [I’m on my way to catch the bus right now. Give me a break, will you? I’ve only just finished my breakfast.]
Su Ye: […]
20 minutes later.
Qi Shan: [Sh*t!]
Su Ye: [?]
Qi Shan: [When I reached the bus stop, there was a guy who kept munching on a packet of chips. Not only that, but he also kept offering his chips to the people around him. I had never seen such a generous person, so, I took two chips from him when I walked by him.]
Su Ye: [So?]
Qi Shan: [… However, the guy gave me a weird look. A moment later, that group of people started asking him if I knew him. It was only after listening to their conversation that I worked out the fact that this whole gang actually knew one another! D*mn it. Can you imagine how awkward it is for me right now?]
Su Ye: [… LMAO]
Zhen Shanmei: [LMAO]
Fei Bai: […]
After reading this, Ning Meng could not help but leave a message: [Qi Shan, thank you. You make me laugh every day with your antics.]
Qi Shan: […]
After having a good laugh, Ning Meng put down her phone to observe her surroundings again. It was then that she saw Liu Miao’s daughter was standing in front of her. The little girl had been staring at her the whole time when she was checking her phone.
Seeing that Ning Meng finally had time to chat, the girl said, “Sis, that comic was updated last night. Have you read it?”
Ning Meng nodded. “Yeah, I did.”
The girl sighed. “The story is a little strange. I don’t quite understand it.”
Ning Meng smiled, “Well, you’re young after all. It’s a little too early for you to understand romantic stuff like that.”
Tilting her head, the girl said, “No, I don’t mean that. I mean… the author’s way of penning her story has gotten a bit too… childish lately.”
Childish? What did she mean?
The girl sighed again. “In the past, she was able to draw comics that were much better in quality. The drawing was much prettier, and the plot was more wholesome and thought-provoking. I suppose… the author has forgotten some bits from her past. Maybe that caused her story to become so incoherent.”
Ning Meng was able to catch something peculiar from the girl’s words.
“What were the author’s previous works felt like?”
Hearing this, the girl took out her tablet and started to fiddle with the device. A moment later, she showed Ning Meng a comic. “Look at this. This is my favorite ‘Ning Meng’s comic’. It’s called ‘Ride With the Wind’.”
Ride With the Wind?
A frown was carved upon Ning Meng’s face after hearing the name. This was the name of a comic that she had drawn in the “real world”.
