In the Mountain Villa, on the second floor, it was all in the dark. There was a shadow leaning on the banisters. She had her head up with her eyes closed. No one knew what was going on in her mind.
Not far away on the road, another person was leaning against the front of the car, thinking back about what had happened before.
When the reality was aired out in the open, it was not only the courage to accept that was needed. What was also needed was how to pick the path of the future in the most reasonable way. And that was something he could not accept.
Tonight would be a sleepless night for both of them.
After a long while, Xia Ning’s phone rang.
Xia Ning looked at the incoming call and seemed somewhat soft. She picked it up at once.
“Yeah, I’m home. Going to the set tomorrow.”
“No worries. I will take care of myself. You too.”
“Jin Yan, I said it out loud. I feel relieved. No matter how that person is from now on, it has nothing to do with me.”
Yes, she told him with brutal honesty that every time he approached, she felt extremely gross.
The next morning, Xia Ning dressed herself up in the house and was ready to go to the press conference directly.
This was the first publicity for ‘The City of Desperation’. All the main creators would be there.
When she drove out of the house, Xia Ning saw the black Bentley parked on the side. She moved her eyes away, pressed the gas paddle and drove away.
In the car, Qiao Yu watched Xia Ning leave and looked to the front without any emotion on his face. After a sleepless night, he still did not feel sleepy at all.
All of a sudden, his phone rang. Qiao Yu took a look and picked it up.
“Press conference, okay. I see. I will go.”
Qiao Yu hung up and sat back in the seat. After some silence, he drove away.
The press conference was hosted in the conference hall in the AS Hotel. Because Qiao Yu was the investor, the crew got a lot of support from the Shengshi Group in many aspects.
When Xia Ning arrived, Zeng Jun, Lin Nan, and a few others were already there.
“Xia Ning, this way!” Lin Nan saw Xia Ning walking in and waved to her immediately.
Xia Ning was wearing a simple blue dress. With her hair plaited up, she looked gentle and elegant. Her young and agile face, of course, attracted a lot of attention.
She walked towards Lin Nan calmly under all the camera flashes at her.
“Why are you so late?” Lin Nan held Xia Ning’s arm and walked to the side. He looked at her face. “Why does your face look so bad? Did you not sleep well last night?”
Xia Ning smiled slightly. “I lost some sleep last night. I’ll go back and rest once the press conference is over.”
Lin Nan nodded and said, “The place where we are filming this time is not great. You should take care of yourself.”
Xia Ning nodded. “I know. Thanks, Brother Lin.”
Zeng Jun saw Lin Nan and Xia Ning standing together and said suddenly, “Xia Ning, Lin Nan, come over here.”
“Let’s go.” Lin Nan held Xia Ning’s hand and walked over.
Xia Ning saw Lin Nan in the front and smiled slightly. Why did she feel like she went back to the past? Back then, he used to hold her hand like this as well.
The movie hadn’t started filming yet so the reporters were asking about the director’s idea behind the movie. Of course, there were questions about the personalities of the male and female leads. Xia Ning kept smiling and did not answer the questions directly.
Even Lin Nan could not help but praise Xia Ning for her high IQ and EQ.
Of course, the reporters were concerned about Lin Nan’s personal life.
Some reporter asked straightforwardly, “Movie King Lin, someone said you were planning to get married a while ago. Is that true?”
Xia Ning heard this and remembered suddenly that last time when Lin Nan was helping her distract the media, he was asked the same question. She tried hard to hold her laughter back and wanted to see how he was going to answer this.
Lin Nan darted a look at Xia Ning on the side and turned to the reporters and said, “Yes, I do have plans to get married.”
