Chapter 168: Encounter At The Restaurant

Translator: Henyee Translations Editor: Henyee Translations

For the entire afternoon, Xia Ning, Lin Nan, and Zeng Jun were discussing the scripts and did not even have time for lunch.

When they got out of Zeng Jun’s house, it was already five o’clock.

In the garage, Lin Nan opened the car door and said to Xia Ning who was also opening the door, “What about dinner together?”

Xia Ning turned around to Lin Nan and smiled. “Sure. Just in case Brother Lin mentions this to me every day and gets worried about me forgetting about it.”

Lin Nan heard and chuckled. “Of course. Otherwise, once you are famous, I don’t think I will have my spot in the queue.”

“Of course not. Being able to dine with Movie King Lin is my honor,” Xia Ning said with a smile. “You can pick a place and I will follow your car.”


The two got in their cars and drove out of the garage.

Lin Nan picked a local restaurant in the city center. After they parked the cars, both of them put on some disguise and walked in separately.

The room was booked before and the dishes were picked by Lin Nan beforehand as well.

Xia Ning smiled at Lin Nan across the table and said, “Looks like Brother Lin has prepared everything. If I did not come with you tonight, was Brother Lin planning to come by yourself?”

“I thought you’d come!” Lin Nan stood up and poured some tea for Xia Ning, as well as for him.

Xia Ning held the teacup and raised it to Lin Nan. “Thank you, Brother Lin, for your consideration in advance.”

“No need to mention it.” Lin Nan raised his cup and looked at Xia Ning with a smile. “You are brilliant enough. All you need is an opportunity to be famous.”

Xia Ning took back her smile. “Many people are brilliant enough but just missing this kind of opportunity. That’s why they are buried.”

“You are right about this.” Lin Nan nodded and frowned a little. “I used to know a senior who had very good acting skills but didn’t have an opportunity. In the end…” As he spoke, he went into silence.

The atmosphere in the room cooled down a little. Xia Ning lowered her head and took a sip. She then changed topics. “I’ve been back in S City for more than a year now, but I haven’t had a chance to have the local dishes. Thanks to Brother Lin today, I have the opportunity to enjoy the food.”

Lin Nan looked to her with a smile. “Do you want to see the menu and order something else? I just guessed your taste for the dishes I ordered.”

Xia Ning looked at Lin Nan and was a bit speechless. “Brother Lin, this is on me today. You want to order more and bankrupt me?”

“You donated ten million. I guess you couldn’t care less about this small amount of money.” Lin Nan chuckled. He stared at her bright face and looked gentler.

Xia Ning hummed. “Just because I donated all my money, now I have to eat dirt.”

“Then I’ll pay!” Lin Nan said with a smile.

“Nope, otherwise, you will say that I owe you a meal next time.”

“You are holding a grudge against me!”

The atmosphere between the two got better and better and they had a great time at dinner.

After dinner, when Xia Ning was ready to pay, she realized that Lin Nan had paid already.

“Brother Lin, you can’t do this. I was just joking. I can afford a dinner.” Xia Ning looked at Lin Nan and said helplessly.

Lin Nan opened the door and said to Xia Ning, “A guy and a lady’s first meal cannot be paid by the lady. Save some face for your Brother Lin, okay?” As he spoke he squinted his eyes at her. “Give me a chance okay!”

Seeing him being funny, Xia Ning chuckled. “Then next time…” Before she could finish her words, the corner of her eyes caught sight of a familiar figure walking towards her. She stopped talking and looked over.

The man walked in front of the group. The handsome face was a bit cold like usual and the haute couture suit outlined his perfect body. His entire body was as noble as a king. The others next to him were following him and trying to say something to him. His eyes fell onto Xia Ning all of a sudden.
