"Mr. Lu, there really isn't a problem with it. It's already perfect." The assistant expressed his honest opinion to Lu Jinnian. Seeing as he was still a little anxious, he wanted to calm his nerves, so he looked all around him, and in the end, grabbed a pile of documents from the table. He walked up to Lu Jinnian, and said, "Mr. Lu, how about we play a game to see if the heavens will allow your confession to succeed or not succeed?"
Lu Jinnian slightly nodded, then stared with rapt attention at the assistant's test.
The assistant grabbed the first document and said. "Confession succeeds..."
He grabbed the second document. "Confession doesn't succeed..."
"Confession doesn't succeed..."
When the assistant saw the last document, his expression instantly stiffened. He didn't dare sneak a glance at Lu Jinnian.
How could the last document coincidentally be 'Confession doesn't succeed'!
In that split second, Lu Jinnian's expression froze over. With a light tone, he helped the assistant reveal the answer, "Confession doesn't succeed?"
The assistant instantly felt a cold shiver crawl up his back. He quickly shook his head and said, "Mr. Lu, it was a simple mistake. Let's go again now... again... This time, I'll start with 'Confession doesn't succeed', then it'll end with 'Confession succeeds'..."
"Leave!" Before the assistant could finish, Lu Jinnian casually grabbed the computer's mouse, and chucked it at the assistant. This time, the assistant completely shut up, hugged the documents in his arm, and bolted out of the office.
Lu Jinnian sat back in his office chair in rage. He raised his hand and massaged his head. He stared at the documents his assistant counted just now, then dawdled for a while, recounting, "Confession doesn't succeed... Confession succeeds... Confession doesn't succeed... Confession succeeds..."
"Confession succeeds!" Lu Jinnian looked at the last document, and slowly said those two words. Then, he shut his eyes, and sat back into his chair. He secretly thought that he'll definitely succeed. Definitely succeed!
Though Lu Jinnian called Qiao Anhao to say that he might be home late, and for her not to wait for him to have dinner, he still managed to get out of his dinner meeting and drive home early on his own.
On his way back, he gave Qiao Anhao a call, as he knew that she'd be eating at the lower floor of the mall. And so, he drove directly to the parking lot of the mall, and went to find her.
When Lu Jinnian arrived, Qiao Anhao had just finished eating. He casually paid the bill, and seeing as it was early, he suggested that they go watch a movie.
Qiao Anhao didn't mind.
As Lu Jinnian hadn't thought in advance what movie to watch, he chose the one that was about to play.
When they sat down in their seats, the movie had already started. Lu Jinnian froze as he realized that the female lead happened to be Lin Shiyi. He then realized that Huan Ying Entertainment had invested in this movie half a year ago, but it was only recently released in cinema.
He was so concerned with the time, that he completely didn't pay attention to the cast. When this film was shot, Qiao Anhao hadn't entered the entertainment industry yet, and Song Xiangsi was filming in Hollywood, so Lin Shiyi was considered for the role of the female lead.
Lu Jinnian knew that Qiao Anhao and Lin Shiyi had never gotten along, yet this was the movie he chose. He was a little afraid that she'd be unhappy, so he turned to glance over at her, and whispered in her ear, "Who in the world has such bad taste to cast such a crappy female lead?"
