When she got to the set, Xia Ning went to say hi to Shi Hao first.


“Brother Shi Hao.” Xia Ning looked at the man who was standing next to the director, telling him what he wanted to express and said with a smile.


Shi Hao looked up at Xia Ning and nodded. “Xia Ning, you are here.”


Shi Hao was 34 years old and was a pioneer in contemporary pop music. His albums were almost always sold out once they were out and he had won the Best Music Award for three years. Plus, he had good looks and had a lot of girl fans.


However, Shi Hao announced that he was already married for three years when he was 30. A lot of fans were hurt by this, but Shi Hao’s wife was a beautiful and graceful lady. Eventually, the fans accepted her.


“I heard your next movie is starting soon. I was very worried about not being able to make it to your schedule,” Shi Hao said with a smile. “Then I won’t be able to use your name to get attention.”


Xia Ning knew Shi Hao was just teasing so she said with a smile, “I was afraid that my name would ruin your work.”


Shi Hao waved his hands. “Don’t be modest. You two will definitely be able to add a lot to my new song.”


“You two?” Xia Ning noticed the peculiarity in Shi Hao’s words.


Shi Hao raised his eyebrows. “I forgot to tell you, the man in the MV is not me. I was able to get Movie King Lin.”


Xia Ning looked surprised for a second. Why would Lin Nan be downgrading himself for MVs?


Shi Hao knew what Xia Ning was thinking and smiled mysteriously to her. “Do not underestimate a man’s determination.”


Xia Ning: “…” What was that? She could not follow.


Not after long, Lin Nan arrived as Shi Hao had expected. He was wearing a shirt and long pants. With his outstanding looks, he looked like he was around 30 years old.


“Xia Ning!” Lin Nan came to say hi directly.


Xia Ning nodded at him and said with a smile, “Brother Lin, I just heard from Brother Shi Hao that you are the male lead in his MV. I’m curious. How much money did Brother Shi Hao pay to get you here?”


Lin Nan smiled and did not speak.


But Shi Hao on the side looked mysterious. “I will tell you this. I paid nothing. Haha. I got a real bargain this time. Suit yourself here and I will talk to the director.”


Xia Ning saw Shi Hao’s back and was a bit helpless. “I wonder if Brother Shi Hao’s wife knows about this wanky side of him?”


Lin Nan looked at Xia Ning with some surprise. Obviously, he did not expect to hear that word from her.


Xia Ning realized she was not watching her words and coughed a little. “Just a buzz word from the Internet. I happened to see it and picked it up,” she said.


Lin Nan smiled and said, “Fine.”


Xia Ning darted a look at him. What was fine?


“Where have you been lately?” Lin Nan asked suddenly. “I couldn’t get through your phone.”


Xia Ning heard that and said apologetically, “Brother Lin, I’m so sorry. I lost my phone and that’s why it couldn’t get through. Later, I will send my new number to you.


Lin Nan heard her and somehow felt relieved. He thought she did not want to talk to him. Good thing it was just because she lost her phone.


“As a matter of fact, this MV is really some kind of publicity for our movie,” Lin Nan said suddenly.


Xia Ning looked at him, confused.


Lin Nan explained, “Both are about cradle robbers.” But he was not that old okay? A man reaches his prime in his forties. And he was only thirty-six-ish. Still young.


Xia Ning thought for a second and nodded. “True. Maybe we can be an on-screen couple and I don’t have to worry about gossips anymore.”


“I don’t mind that,” Lin Nan said with a smile.


Xia Ning sized him up with some disapproval. “But I do mind.”


Lin Nan: “…” So was she saying he was too old?
