Chapter 29 Two guests
The sun rose slowly from the distance where the water and the sky met, red hanging in midair, dyeing the sea red, a fishing boat swayed out to sea in the distance, the lighthouse still lit.
The sea was calm, the mountains foggy as the seagulls spread their wings and a new day began.
On the boardwalk around the coast, Lin Qin and Meng Chao ran side by side. Both were wearing shorts, two long legs attracting the photographer’s attention, the close-up lens staying on them for a long time.
The early morning sea breeze was slightly cool, with the salty smell peculiar to the sea water, brushing their faces from time to time.
“Is that today’s guest?” Meng Chao could clearly see, a car stopping on the highway in the distance.
The car had the show crew’s sponsor banner, and it appearing here at this point in time, it was most likely today’s guest.
Lin Qin looked in that direction only to see the door open and two people step out from the car one after another. Because of the distance, he didn’t see who had come out from the car, he only knew it was a man and a woman.
The two dressed in casual sportswear took out their suitcases from the trunk respectively. When they looked up and found Lin Qin and Meng Chao standing on the boardwalk, they waved excitedly.
“Come on, let’s go and greet them.” Meng Chao wiped the sweat beads on his forehead with a towel and said to Lin Qin.
Lin Qin hesitated for a moment then followed, but he was no longer walking side by side with the Meng Chao, instead falling behind him as he followed.
The man and the woman were indeed the guests this time. The man’s name was Zhang Yue and the woman was Jin Feiyun.
Zhang Yue was an actor. Because of the requirements of the movie he was filming, he had a beard and looked a few years older than his actual age. Born from a middle class status, his acting skills could be regarded as excellent in the younger generation.
A hot TV series of his was being broadcast recently, so taking this job was to promote that TV series.
Jin Feiyun was a popular small internet beauty, someone in the entertainment circle who had returned to the country after gaining overseas, H country’s female group’s debutee, she had strong dancing skills and was currently serving as a mentor for a talent show, so she often showed up on the hot search, having a little fame.
When they saw Lin Qin and Meng Chao coming, they quickly put down their suitcases and bowed down respectfully to them: “Senior Meng, Senior Lin.”
It was reasonable to say that Lin Qin who had just debuted for more than a year could be said to be Zhang Yue and Jin Feiyun’s junior, but the entertainment circle had never gone in accordance with the year you debuted, but rather your seniority. Lin Qin alone could give Zhang Yue and Jin Feiyun a run for their money within seconds because of his Cannes film award, so these two calling Lin Qin senior wasn’t wrong. Not to mention, Meng Chao who was known as the legend of the entertainment circle.
Meng Chao wasn’t wearing sunglasses because they were running, so he lacked the high sense of elegance he usually had in front of the lens, but standing here aloof and full of brilliance, he still gave people the feeling of gentleness.
He reached for Jin Feiyun’s and Zhang Yue’s suitcases, as he said half jokingly: “You are the guests today, making you god, so you don’t have to be so polite.”
This sentence eased some of the tension in the atmosphere and instantly pulled the distance between them closer.
Lin Qin who was standing behind Meng Chao didn’t know what expression to make, so he simply gave no expression and nodded at them. “Hello.” Feeling that this wasn’t enough he added: “You can call me Lin Qin.”
Actually, Lin Qin was younger than Zhang Yue and Jin Feiyun and personally felt that he didn’t deserve the honour of being called senior.
The expressionless Lin Qin looked very cold, but he still took a suitcase from Meng Chao.
The group of four people walked along the boardwalk to the villa and don’t know whether it was intentional or not, Meng Chao always stood between Lin Qin and the two guests, blocking the two who were trying to use Lin Qin to create effects for the show enthusiastically.
