Chapter 62

After this, they naturally couldn't continue the act.

In fact, Xi Ze's acting of this scene wasn't wrong. The original script had the teenager bow his head, letting the female teacher give him a comforting kiss. The script wanted to express that the youth fell in love with the female teacher, letting her live.

But this plot was revised a few days ago after Ming Yu had a discussion with the director. Ming Yu and Zhu Kejia's analysis was the same. Such an indifferent and antisocial teenager, how could he fall in love at first glance with the female teacher?

He didn't kill her, but he couldn't fall in love with her.

Thus, after talking with the director, the script was changed and everyone got a new script. However, Ming Yu's script had a lot of important notes written on it. Rather than replacing it with a new script, he used a black pen to make the contents of the new script onto a blank space.

Having said that, even in the original script, the youth shouldn't be the one kissing the female teacher!!!

Ming Yu pushed the man away, wiping at his forehead while seriously saying, "Your acting is really bad. The whole scene collapsed." He paused before continuing. "Fortunately, you are a model and not an actor."

Xi Ze watched the youth wiping his forehead and raised an eyebrow. This sentence was a little familiar?

The person who got NGs 20 times was actually criticizing him for poor acting. Xi Ze didn't get angry. He just raised his hands and asked, "Did I do something wrong?"

Ming Yu righteously said, "Of course, you made a mistake! I had a few lines of this scene crossed out, with the new plot marked next to it. The previous plot wasn't in the script at all. The teenager just hugged the female teacher and there was no comforting kiss."

Xi Ze was surprised when he heard this and exclaimed, "Your marking isn't good. I didn't see this story at all!"

"…You didn't see that big scratch?"

Xi Ze replied sincerely. "I think it was an emphasis mark."

Ming Yu, “… (/=_=)/~┴┴"

Who would put an emphasis in the middle of the world!!

Out of consideration, Ming Yu didn't go deeper into the problem. He was vaguely aware of something, but when he looked up at Xi Ze, the latter was looking at him indifferently. There was no sweating or agitation at all, like he was really telling the truth.

…No matter how Ming Yu ignored it, he knew that when the other person's lips touched him, his heartbeat became rapid and his ears somewhat hot. If someone was to carefully observe his ears right now, they would find that it was still a bright red, the heat not subsiding at all.

Ming Yu lightly coughed twice and suppressed this strange feeling in his heart. He temporarily decided not to think about it. On the other hand, he didn't notice Xi Ze looking down at him for a long time. Due to their height, Ming Xiaoyu couldn't see Xi Ze's eyes, but the latter could completely see him.

Xi Ze chose not to point out the slight shyness that was visible under Ming Yu's calm appearance. His lips just curved in a meaningful manner before pretending he didn't know anything.

Boiling a frog in warm water, even if it was heated once a day, it should be cooked at least 60~70% right?

It was also time to make some moves other than 'often send text messages' and 'occasionally meet.'

As a result, the two people were 'ghostly' silent. After a while, Ming Yu took the initiative to cook Xi Ze a bowl of noodles (yes, not instant noodles! A real bowl of noodles!). In this period of time, Ming Xiaoyu's cooking had greatly improved. His fans had long been unable to stand their god 'can't even make tomato scrambled eggs.' Thus, in one part of his Muse official forum, there was a red post that was never allowed to sink—

[365 days, I call Ming Xiaoyu to eat this!]

Every day, there were caring fans who would post their cooking recipes, including details of what to pay attention to. At first, they just wanted Ming Xiaoyu to stop eating nonsense like his tomato scrambled eggs. But slowly, more fans who loved to cook came together and threw Ming Xiaoyu to the side… cough, it became a group to exchange their cooking experience.

Even so, Ming Yu learned something from it. He couldn't cook braised lion head (stewed meatballs) or boiled meat, but wasn't a bowl of noodles okay? Just sprinkle some green onion and pepper, pour the sesame oil and pull out a bow of fragrant

Xi Ze was surprised when he saw this bowl of noodles. It was a world of difference compared to the instant noodles from New Year's Eve!

As if he sensed the other person's surprise, Ming Xiaoyu put on a calm demeanor and said, "It is too bad I am busy today. Otherwise, I could cook braised lion's head, boiled meat, crystal shrimp or sweet and sour pork."

Xi Ze calmly replied, “Oh?” I remember that you still owe a favour?"

Ming Yu was surprised at the words. A hint of a bad feeling flashed through his head.

He could only listen as Xi Ze said, "Then you should cook braised lion's head, boiled meat, crystal shrimp and sweet and sour pork for me. Then I will consider this favour returned."

Ming Xiaoyu, "…(┙>∧<)┙へ┻┻"

Alas, why did he say those words?

He wasn't an upright person and was hit by thunder!

Ming Xiaoyu, how could you say such narcissitic things?

Things were settled for the moment, so Ming Yu and Xi Ze sat the table eating the noodles. It was slippery but both people didn't make a sound. Xi Ze was always elegant and calm, so it was impossible for him to make sound when eating. On the other side, Ming Xiaoyu looked at the script and only ate a few handfuls as he occasionally picked up the pend to write something.

The fourth time this happened, Xi Ze gently put down the chopsticks and sighed. "If you use the feelings that I just showed, there should be no problem."

Ming Yu shook his head because he was very self-aware. "You don't understand my acting. If I don't carefully figure out every detail, there might be a problem."

Xi Ze, "…"

I just want to have a quiet meal with you…

Since the meal couldn't continue, Xi Ze chose to stand up and go to Ming Yu in order to give some advice. As he walked, he said, “You should pay attention to your eyes and the movement of the corners of your mouth. When saying the lines just now…the…"

Ming Xiaoyu raised his head,  “(⊙?⊙)"  Why wasn't he saying anything?

Xi Ze, "…!!!"

What is with these words? No… they weren't words!!

In the clean notebook, seven or eight earthworm-like characters unexpectedly appeared. These characters! It was like a knife. The visual was enough to cause shock!

Even the calm Xi Ze was petrified in place!

A long time passed and Ming Xiaoyu's face was like "( ̄o ̄)".
Xi Ze finally recovered from seeing this handwriting. He turned to look at the young man next to him. He wanted to speak, but it was like he couldn't find an exit or know where to start.

…It was too much, Xi Ze couldn't understand it, let alone the readers.

Before he saw Ming Yu's writing, he didn't think the youth would write…such…earth-shattering characters.

Xi Ze secretly looked at the five year contract signed by Ming Yu and saw the youth's signature. The signature wasn't pretty, but it could be considered serious and average.

Later, Ming Yu's signature became more elegant. Like Fei Sixin said, Ming Xiaoyu's signature was really good looking, he had certainly received professional training and practiced the signature.

Fei Sixin's guess was right.

In Ming Yu's precious life, the industry didn't pay attention to the models' manners, but a signature was something that was often required. Ming Xiaoyu thought his words were straight edged and big, but his agent made an unspeakable expression and invited a special calligraphy master to design 'Ming Yu's' signature. Then he was forced to practice it for several months before obtaining such a cloud-like signature.

In other words… the agent thought it was too helpless ╮(╯_╰)╭.
Xi Ze stared at Ming Yu for a long time and suddenly asked, "Your signature doesn't look like this?"

Ming Xiaoyu, "…Ah?"

Xi Ze demanded. "Sign your name for me. It shouldn't be what I remember."

Before the Ji and Ya fashion show, Ming Yu had left his name on the signature wall. Many models and actors practiced their signature after their debut, so when Xi Ze saw his signature, it wasn't strange that he thought 'Why is it different from the contract three years ago?'

His muse, he was really good in every aspect. Oh, apart from acting.

And now…

Ming Yu placed his pen on top of the notebook and wrote out a fierce and sharp 'Ming Yu', looking exactly the same as the signature on the wall.

Xi Ze, "…"

Was this the legendary 'golden on the outside, shabby on the inside?'….

Chapter 63

That night, Xi Ze chose to stay at Ming Xiaoyu's home very late.

Don't imagine crooked things. God Xi didn't do the things you are imagining. Rather, he carefully guided Ming Xiaoyu on how to write!

Xi Ze admitted that he had a bit of an obsession with cleanliness, but it wasn't paranoia.  But once he saw Ming Yu's handwriting, his designer aesthetics couldn't let him bear such a detail. The muse he chose really wrote with such handwriting!

Change! It must change! Even if it didn't look good, at least it wasn't too ugly!

…Later, this thought slowly became 'Well, we will start with it being pleasing to the eye.'

For two hours, Xi Ze sat beside Ming Yu, writing out each character in a seal copybook. Xi Ze finished writing and then handed it to Ming Yu to copy. The paper was transparent so it could be copied! Can't you even draw a stroke?

Xi Ze guessed right. Ming Yu couldn't even draw a stroke. The moment he did, the character would instantly be restored to the original dog writing, without any improvement.

Xi Ze, "…"

Ming Yu, "…In fact, my handwriting is okay?"

Xi Ze, "…"

In the end, Xi Ze completely gave up on the strokes practice, having him practice calligraphy. Who came up with this stupid idea? This little fish already had ugly handwriting to the extent that even his strokes were ridiculous!

Ming Yu said, "…I feel like your expression is saying that my characters are really ugly."

Xi Ze asked with indifferent eyes, "Do you?"

Ming Yu carefully looked at him before nodding with certainly. "Yes, I feel like you are now saying 'How can someone write such ugly words? Is this really a person's writing?' But Xi Ze, my handwriting isn't ugly to that extent, right? I am exaggerating a lot."

Xi Ze, "… ?_?"

Ming Yu, “…”

Since this failed, Xi Ze's choice was direct hands-on teaching with the youth!

As the man's slender fingers grasped Ming Yu's fingers while holding the pen, Ming Yu felt a strange feeling fill his heart. This posture could be regarded as an alternative type of interlocking ten fingers, but Xi Ze's serious expression meant Ming Yu couldn't think that.

Ming Yu had a vague guess about the man's behaviour. But after figuring it out, his lips curved and he didn't say anything as the other hand holding his started to write out a stroke.

Ming Xiaoyu thought his handwriting was quite good? Yes, but he also understood that Xi Ze's characters were absolutely well written. Fei Sixin had previous said that Xi Ze wrote even better than Du Ruo. Du Ruo had been practicing calligraphy since she was 4, so you can guess how good Xi Ze's words were.

Xi Ze's handwriting was recognized as beautiful in the industry.

Despite holding a cheap pen and Ming Yu's hand, Xi Ze wrote out smooth characters that weren't sharp. His characters seemed to be like a phoenix elegantly landing on a lake, perfect and wonderful. After seeing it for a long time, he could tell that it wasn't hard characters. It was like Xi Ze was writing with a very small pen.

A hot temperature passed down at the point where their fingers met. Ming Yu calmly looked at the other person holding his hand to write beautiful characters and his lips slightly tilted up.

In the case of friends, this behaviour was already too much.

But none of the two men raised any questions, simply continuing with their actions.

By the time the two of them filled two sheets of paper, MIng Yu hadn't yet found the knack for writing, but he vaguely had an idea. According to Xi Ze, "If you persevere, maybe three… within a year, you can write normal words."

Ming Yu, “…”

Please think before speaking next time! Swallow down your 'three years!'

In the end, Xi Ze didn't leave Ming Yu's home until 11 p.m. Once the other person left, Ming Yu wasn't 'shy shy' or in chaos. He calmly washed up like nothing happened and slept early.

Only, before closing his eyes, Ming Yu gaze up at the city lights reflected on the ceiling, thinking for a long time. Finally, he slowly closed his eyes and fell asleep.

On the top floor of the Muse apartments, Xi Ze poured himself a cup of warm water and called Ding Bo.

Ding Bo was in a very noisy place. However, once he heard Xi Ze's call, he quickly left the room and asked, "Why are you calling so late? Aren't you going to a party tomorrow?"

The man gently replied "Ah," and then asked, "Have things with Luo Cheng been resolved yet?"

Ding Bo sighed heavily and replied. "Yes, 'Eda Lisa' isn't happy but we also can't cooperate with their US side any longer. Now the two sides are discussing the issue of the contract. Everyone is saying that the other party breached the contract first, so it is very troublesome."

"Go find Raymond Celtic."

Ding Bo was surprised and asked, "Are you getting involved in this matter?"

"This is Eda Lisa. You handled it well, so good luck."

Ding Bo laughed and said, "If you allowed me to find Raymond earlier, I wouldn't have to listen to so much nonsense. By the way, didn't you go to the Muse apartment today? Why are you resting so late?"

After chatting with his old friend for a while, Xi Ze suddenly asked, "Send me a copy of Ming Yu's upcoming jobs."

Ding Bo asked with surprise. "What? How can I possible have it? It is in that kid Zhao Rui's hands."

"Shen Xiang will have a way. I will be waiting for your email. Goodnight."

After giving an order, Xi Ze didn't wait for Ding Bo to reply and suddenly hung up the phone.

In the still and dark night, the atmosphere of spring became clearer. However, winter was till trying to wreak havoc for a while. The strong evening breeze whistled through the city at high altitudes, while Xi Ze looked down through the window at the night lights of the capital.

It was very easy to communicate between smart people.

He didn't have to put out some things because he already conveyed what he meant, and he knew that the other person understood.

He was a designer, but before he became a designer, he was Xi Ze.

What type of identity did a muse have for a designer? A muse was their source of inspiration, someone they could get countless inspirations from.

Why did one particular person in the world become their muse, not one of the other 7 billion people in the world?

It was because at first sight, they were attracted to him/her. This person was the beauty their heart was longing for, the most profound embodiment of beauty.

As a designer, if he didn't pursue the beauty he had been craving all his life, what would he pursue?

That person was always bad, always opinionated, secretly mischievous and cunning.

…Yes, he was cute.


The next day, Ming Yu only got 2 NGs before smoothly passing.

Don't mention the director, even Zhao Rui and Luo Ru were greatly surprised. When they asked Ming Xiaoyu what panacea he ate to receive suddenly enlightenment, Ming Yu didn't try to hide it. "Yesterday, Xi Ze helped me act it out."

Zhao Rui, "!!!!!"

After a moment, Luo Ru asked, "Xiaoyu, did you go to the company yesterday?"

Ming Yu unexpectedly shook his head. "Xi Ze came to my house to help me. I didn't go to the company."

This time, Zhao Rui and Luo Ru, "!!!!!"

There was only one person, Sister Cheng left and she took on the mission of questioning Ming Xiaoyu. "Xiaoyu, did Xi Ze come to find you for some matter, so you asked him for help and he agreed?"

The next moment, she saw this handsome youth smile and asked with surprise, "Sister Zheng, why do you think that? Xi Ze came to my home to visit. He saw me pondering over the script and offered to help. Oh yes, I cooked him a bowl of noodles as thanks."

It turned into Zhao Rui, Luo Ru and Sister Zheng, "!!!!!!!"

A bowl of noodles?

You paid Xi Ze back with a bowl of noodles?

This was Xi Ze, not Ding Bo! (Ding Bo: Hello!)

A bowl of noodles as thanks really didn't fit!!!

Ming Xiaoyu, don't you have a conscience? God Xi helped you with acting?

It was too hard to believe.

In any case, the next two scenes passed quickly after Ming Yu finished the most difficult shot. At this point, the MV shooting was entirely over and there was a farewell dinner to celebrate the success of the filming.

At the table, Zhu Kejia and Ming Yu took a photo and added each other as friend. Zhu Kejia slightly edited the photo before posting it on her Wiebo, as well as mentioning Ming Xiaoyu.

【 Zhu Kejia: Today I finished shooting with Small Mushroom Ming Yu. Ah, he is really young, I feel like old bacon next to him. Haha. [/Picture] 】
