After Sister Zhang left the banquet hall, the smile on her face immediately disappeared. She slapped Liang Tian right in front of the waiter.
“Put your intentions away! You can’t afford to offend anyone who attends this occasion. How dare you think about her? Is she someone with whom you can easily claim ties of kinship? She is the daughter of the Ji family. Although she’s only an adopted daughter, the Ji family values her more than their own son. She came to the entertainment industry to have fun. Don’t direct your crooked thoughts toward her. Otherwise, you won’t be able to handle the consequences.”
After being beaten, Liang Tian didn’t even dare to let out a sound. “I got it. Sister, I’m sorry.”
“Let’s go. What a disappointment!” Sister Zhang glared at him and turned around to leave.
Liang Tian followed closely, carefully opened the door, and fastened his seat belt, in fear that Sister Zhang would get angry.
Sister Zhang saw him like this, remembered his obedience and hard work during this period, and smiled. “Be obedient, and I won’t treat you badly. Didn’t you always want to terminate the contract with the brokerage company? I’ll help you. In addition to that, I’ll help you find a better brokerage company. Even though you aren’t the first brother, they’ll never treat you badly.”
[Yi ge (一哥) means the leader or the top person in the company]
“Thank you, sister!” Liang Tian said excitedly. He knew that his compromise had been useful.
And this scene was quietly photographed by a person in the corner, then posted on Weibo. Then it was carried by countless marketing accounts. Of course, these marketing accounts didn’t dare to offend Sister Zhang, so they blurred the background and put a mosaic on Sister Zhang’s face. The only face that was shown was Liang Tian’s.
In fact, the fact that Liang Tian was being taken care of by a rich woman had long been a secret in the entertainment circle; the major marketing accounts had also talked about this matter speciously. Only Liang Tian’s fans⎯⎯whose fandom name was “angels”—always firmly believed that their brother was innocent and that other people were buying black manuscripts to blackmail their brother.
But after this video was released, even the angels were unwilling. Still, they had to admit that the man in the video was the one whom they regarded as perfect.
For a while, Liang Tian lost countless fans. Not only that, but the data stations, like anti-black-material stations and so on, had announced that they were shutting down, one after another.

Of course, there were also fans who refused to believe it. They gathered under Liang Tian’s Weibo account and asked their brother to stand up and explain. Afterwards, the fans left a message on the official blog of Liang Tian’s agency, saying that the agency was useless. But the agency kept playing dead. There was nothing that the fans could do.
After running around, they finally returned to Chaohua to cry. [Chaohua, a buzzword on the internet, is the abbreviation of the “super topic”, a function launched by Sina Weibo. It’s a circle formed by a gathering of people with common interests, similar to the interest tribes on QQ. Most of those people are stars and idols. It’s just that, in the environment of Weibo, fans can communicate with celebrities and idols. This function aims to strengthen the communication between stars and fans]
Liang Tian actually knew about the bloody storm in his Weibo, but he didn’t have the heart to deal with it now. Fans were important, but, in Liang Tian’s view, Sister Zhang was much more important than fans. As long as Sister Zhang was sweet-talked, he’d have more opportunities and fans in the future.
Liang Tian’s act of turning a blind eye was the final blow to his fans.
There were more fans who’d taken off their powder. And there were quite a few fans who’d turned black.
[Taking off powder means to stop being a fan. Turning black means they became anti-fans]
Among them was a station sister who’d been Liang Tian’s station sister since his debut. Every time Liang Tian had an event, this station sister was always there.
[Zhan jie (站姐) refers to fans who use advanced cameras to take pictures of idols. The term zhanjie first came from the star-chasing culture in the Korean entertainment industry]
She also took off her powder.
Not only did she take off the powder, but she also backstabbed him.
She outright posted a group of photos on Weibo, stating that this was the last group of photos she’d post as Liang Tian’s station sister. She’d change her username the next day and go take pictures of others. Liang Tian was not worth it.
The photos were actually nothing, but the timeline was very clear. The photos showed that when Liang Tian and Sister Zhang were together, he hadn’t broken up with Jiang Xinyue, confirming that Liang Tian had cheated on her.
In the end, Sister Zhang made a move. First, she helped Liang Tian terminate his contract with the brokerage company, then bought a batch of internet navies to beat the rhythm, pouring dirty water on the brokerage company.
As for Liang Tian himself, he hid within his crew and filmed quietly, didn’t show up, didn’t explain, and let himself be ridiculed. This kind of performance actually deceived many fans, making them think that all this had happened because the agency had framed their brother. Instead, it was the news who had abused a group of fans.
Not long after, a scandal broke out in the entertainment industry about a movie star, quickly suppressing Liang Tian’s news.
Liang Tian looked at his phone and breathed a sigh of relief. His new agent was still very capable. It seemed that his compromise had still been useful. At the very least, if it weren’t for the help of Sister Zhang, he wouldn’t have been able to smoothly terminate his contract with his original brokerage company, and he wouldn’t have been able to own the current studio.
Therefore, no matter how harsh the scolding outside was, Liang Tian could turn a deaf ear to it.
After all, those insults were nothing compared to the benefits Sister Zhang had brought him. When he stood in a high place, to the point where it was unattainable for others, then who dared to say anything?
Just like now, some people secretly hated him and looked down on him, but they still acted like brothers in front of each other.
There were so many shortcuts he could take. Liang Tian no longer wanted to work hard by himself.
Liang Tian thought about marrying Sister Zhang. In this case, the relationship between them wouldn’t be a nurturing one, but one of true love. By then, he’d be able to clean himself up if they could have a child. Of course, if Sister Zhang didn’t want to have one, she could go abroad to find a surrogate, and then their relationship would be more stable. Sister Zhang would be more dedicated to helping him pave the way.
The more Liang Tian thought about it, the more he felt that this method was good, but he also knew that Sister Zhang had no plans to get married. He also knew that, other than him, Sister Zhang also had two young models. Liang Tian didn’t dare to argue with her. He could only try his best to express himself and work hard to serve Sister Zhang so that she couldn’t leave him. He had been working hard towards this goal.
Then, Flying Clouds was broadcasted, becoming a big hit. Several of its lead actors went viral. Although the second male lead’s acting was somewhat worn-down, he had also gained many fans. And Jiang Xinyue even gained 8 million fans in a month from her role as the junior sister.
At the end of the year, she was nominated for Best Supporting Actress of the Magnolia Awards for playing that role. She finally succeeded in winning the award.
Although there were no works shortlisted at the Magnolia Awards ceremony, as Liang Tian was a guest performer, he also attended. He walked the red carpet in an out-of-season outfit, and the scene was endless.
But when Liang Tian saw Jiang Xinyue standing on the stage, holding the trophy and smiling confidently, his heart stopped for a moment. If he hadn’t taken that step back then, maybe everything would have been different now, right?
But there was no “if” in this world.
Regardless of the strange looks the people around him were giving, Liang Tian clapped his hands with a smile on his face, as if he were genuinely happy for her.
Jiang Xinyue walked off the stage while holding the trophy, and the next performer happened to be Li Huairou. When the two met backstage, Jiang Xinyue took the initiative to give Li Huairou a big hug. After all, without her, she would’ve missed the role of junior sister, let alone today’s award.
“Thank you!” Jiang Xinyue’s tone was very sincere.
Li Huairou blinked and pushed Jiang Xinyue away. “Alright, don’t get bored, go back quickly. Sit down and wait to see my performance. I’ve prepared for today’s performance for a long time.”
Jiang Xinyue nodded with a smile.
Others were a little surprised. These two usually didn’t have much contact with each other, so how come they acted so familiarly?
Jiang Xinyue hurried back to her seat and sat down. When the music started, she ignored the pleasantries with the people around her and immediately concentrated on watching.
Liang Tian also watched seriously. He had to admit that, after not seeing her for a while, Li Huairou’s stage performance had improved a lot. She turned the microphone on, sang and danced, and her breath control was smooth. He stared blankly at Li Huairou on the stage as she vividly exuded her stage charm.
Liang Tian suddenly remembered that it seemed like he hadn’t been on stage for a long time. Singing, dancing, and sweating on the stage seemed to be things from a previous life.
Was he envious? He should be, but he had no choice.
After Li Huairou’s performance ended, she didn’t leave immediately, instead changing her clothes and coming down. Seeing this, Jiang Xinyue changed seats and sat with Li Huairou.
Jiang Xinyue looked around, feeling that it was a little strange. “Where’s your brother? Why didn’t he come with you?”
“He went out to seek inspiration,” Li Huairou said with a smile.
Jiang Xinyue was a little skeptical.
“Well, the real reason is that my parents urged him to get married, so he hid away,” Li Huairou said with a smile.
Jiang Xinyue couldn’t help laughing. It turned out that talented producers could also be urged to marry by their parents!
“What about you? Aren’t they doing the same to you? My parents are already rushing me,” Jiang Xinyue asked. “But if you were married, you probably wouldn’t look for people in the industry, would you?”
“I’m a no-marriageist, and my parents know it,” Li Huairou said indifferently.
“They have no objections?” Jiang Xinyue was a little surprised.
“Just cry a few times and it’ll be fine. They love me, and they don’t want to embarrass me,” Li Huairou said with a smile. The Ji family parents thought that she’d still be young and confused for a while, and that she might change her mind after a few years. That’s why they didn’t force her. But there was no need to let Jiang Xinyue know about these details.
“What about you? Never thought about dating again?” Li Huairou asked back.
Jiang Xinyue shook her head. “I’m in the rising stage of my career now, and I don’t plan to fall in love and get married in such a short time. Besides, in our line of work…” Jiang Xinyue didn’t say the rest of it out loud, but Li Huairou also understood what she meant. She was afraid that Liang Tian had disgusted her so much that she had lingering fears in her heart.
Li Huairou patted Jiang Xinyue’s hand, silently comforting her. Don’t worry. You are the female lead, and there’ll be a high-quality male lead worthy of you.
“Hello, Ms. Jiang. Let me introduce myself first—I’m Cao Rui. I want to cooperate with you on a script. Do you have time?” Just as they were speaking, a man’s voice rang out.
Li Huairou’s eyes lit up. Speak of the devil and he doth appear. The male lead makes an appearance.
Li Huairou stood up. “I’m leaving first. You guys take your time.” When the male lead appeared, the first movie they collaborated on was not universally favored, but it was a good hit at the box office. Jiang Xinyue also won the first Best Actress award in her life with this movie and officially announced her relationship with Liang Tian. Afterwards, the female lead of every movie with a male protagonist was Jiang Xinyue. Many characters were even tailor-made for Jiang Xinyue.
The male lead had discovered his feelings for the female protagonist very early on, but the female protagonist and Liang Tian had not broken up yet at that time, and the male lead could only hide this emotion in his heart until the two broke up. Finally, the male lead confessed to the female lead. But the female lead did not accept his confession.
Later, at the premiere of every movie, the male lead had to confess his love to the female lead. It wasn’t until the fourth time that she agreed.
Now the situation had changed. The female lead and Liang Tian had broken up a long time ago, so maybe their love would be smoother?
