Yan Jinyi was slightly stunned because she was really stumped by his question.
Seeing her reaction, a dim glint flashed in Huo Xishen’s dark pupils and he said, “Darling, you didn’t even have a heart-to-heart talk with me, so you shouldn’t come to blame me.”
‘This girl seems to be bubbly and unrestrained on the surface but she actually has trust issues, huh? It’s hard for her to trust anyone, let alone let her guard down and give her heart to someone.’
He wanted to force her to come to terms with herself.
Huo Xishen slowly got up and walked closer to Yan Jinyi, looking at her from above.
Her eyes were mesmerizing, like that of a feline.
He planted a kiss on her forehead with his thin lips before continuing, “Darling, don’t do unto others what you don’t want done unto you.”
For the first time, Yan Jinyi began to panic while facing Huo Xishen.
She tilted her head to stare at the floor and said, “I-I was just kidding with you.”
“Darling,” he said, raising her chin with his long index finger, forcing her to look at him. “I can compromise and give in to you in everything, but I can’t let you toy with your own feelings.”
After saying that, she left.
Yan Jinyi stared at his back and wondered, ‘What does he mean? So does he like me or not?’
She couldn’t help but scratch her hair. She…didn’t know if she liked Huo Xishen or not!
Her original intention was to flirt with Huo Xishen, but she did not expect to have really fallen for him. Yan Jinyi felt that she couldn’t even bring herself to face Huo Xishen so she decided to leave it at that and just move to the Black Cloud Fortress.
Money can indeed erase all worries and woes. At the very least, she had been immersed in the joy of counting money the past two days, thus completely forgetting about Huo Xishen’s question.
“Sister Jinyi, Director Tao is here.”
Yan Jinyi obediently put a large stack of money into the drawer and said, “Okay, let him in.”
When Tao Wei followed Zhao Xinchen in, he saw Yan Jinyi sitting on the office chair, clad in a delicate and vivid purple dress.
Her long black hair was held with a jade hairpin, and with the ancient decor around her, she looked as if she had transmigrated from ancient times.
“Jinyi, your Black Cloud Fortress is really good,” Tao Wei said as he rubbed his hands, looking rather fawning. “Can I apply for a membership card?”
Yan Jinyi was a little surprised. “Huh? Director Tao, are you not a VIP here?”
“Hah, I’m usually too busy to come here, so I just need the most basic membership card. After all, I’m not a wealthy man!”
‘Director Tao must have made loads of money from Female Fortress Leader and Moon. He definitely isn’t too busy to patronize Black Cloud Fortress either. He just can’t bear to part with his money.’
“Director Tao, help me find a production that has a low budget but an interesting script and I will give you a free membership. How does that sound?”
The corners of Tao Wei’s mouth twitched. ‘So she specifically asked me to come here just for that? You want a production that has a low budget but is also exciting? Hah, write one yourself.’
Of course, the other party is the second young grandmother of the Huo family, Tao Wei certainly do not dare to say so.
“Jinyi, do you want to the cost of the script to be low or for the overall investment amount to be low?”
Yan Jinyi rolled her eyes. “The latter, duh.”
“Do you want the setting to be modern-day or in the ancient times.”
“How much is your budget?”
Yan Jinyi thought about it and held up five fingers.
“What are you thinking? Five million.”
‘Five million for a costume drama, and a wonderful script? I’m afraid she really thinks the actors don’t cost any money.’
“Jinyi, did you forget to include the actors’ pay? Including their pay, the total budget will definitely exceed five million!”
‘Oops~ I seem to have really forgotten.’
Yan Jinyi frowned.
“It doesn’t matter, I’ll be starring as the female lead. I don’t need to be paid.”
‘You can’t pay yourself a salary either’ Tao Wei secretly thought to himself..
