TN: bonus chapter!💕
“Mr. Tao is reading the script?” Yan Sheng’s agent walked up to Tao Mu and started looking for a topic to chat about.
The sun above his head was blocked by a shadow. Tao Mu raised his head and looked calmly at the smiling man standing in front of him. Although he was sitting and looking up, he did not look any weaker for it.

“I’m Zeng Yiheng, Yan Sheng’s agent.” Zeng Yiheng smiled and stretched out his hand, taking the initiative to introduce himself to Tao Mu. Because Tao Mu had frankly said before joining the crew that he didn’t like Yan Sheng, although Zeng Yiheng really wanted to make connections with Tao Mu, he didn’t strike up a conversation rashly. But things were different now. Zeng Yiheng had some doubts in his heart and wanted to chat with Tao Mu.
“Do you mind if I take a seat here?” Zeng Yiheng asked politely, pointing to the empty lounge chair next to Tao Mu.
Tao Mu said, “Can I help you with something?”
Zeng Yiheng smiled and sat aside: “I remember Mr. Tao was keen to pray and worship at temples some time ago, was there any reason?”
Tao Mu said directly: “To ward off evil spirits.”
Zeng Yiheng asked again, “Mr. Tao also believes in the supernatural?”
Tao Mu closed the script and put it aside. He remembered that in his previous life, Zeng Yiheng, as Yan Sheng’s agent and junior, had a very bland perception of Shen Yu. Although he did not object to Yan Sheng’s relationship with Shen Yu, he did not express his support either. Even when Yan Sheng tried his best to suppress him when they were acting together in order to help Shen Yu vent his anger, he persuaded Yan Sheng against it.
Zeng Yiheng’s reason was that this kind of attitude would damage Yan Sheng’s image of being good and amiable to others in the industry. Although the original intention was not for him, and it didn’t have much effect in the end, Tao Mu considered Zeng Yiheng’s rare neutral position when he was criticized by thousands of people in his previous life, and did not push the other away with deliberate coldness.
“I’d rather believe it just in case.”
Zeng Yiheng pondered for a moment, and then asked, “I remember that Mr. Tao had dealt with Shen Yu several times before. I wonder what you think of Shen Yu?”
Tao Mu frowned and said directly, “I don’t want to make comments on this person.”
“Don’t get me wrong, Mr. Tao,” Zeng Yiheng chuckled and explained, “I don’t mean to sow discord. I won’t tell others about our conversation either. I just think that since Yan Sheng met Shen Yu, his actions and personality seemed to be completely different from before. As if he has become another person entirely.”
In front of Tao Mu, Zeng Yiheng was too embarrassed to complain about Yan Sheng acting like he had been bespelled or possessed. He could only say in a roundabout way: “Using a recently popular Internet term, there is something not right about his style.”
Tao Mu was expressionless: “What does Mr. Zeng want to say?”
Zeng Yiheng hesitated for a moment, but still asked: “I want to ask, about Mr. Tao burning incense at temples and asking for a peace amulet, and even now transcribing the heart-clearing mantra and Buddhist scriptures after work every day, does any of that have a relation with Shen Yu?”
Tao Mu raised his eyebrows and said directly, “I feel like my energy doesn’t mesh well with this person.”
So there is a relation?
Zeng Yiheng heard the underlying meaning and understood. He was about to ask Tao Mu which incense was more effective when he heard Tao Mu continue: “However, my situation is not the same as film king Yan. We are incompatible, but film king Yan and Shen Yu are practically a match made in heaven. I advise Mr. Zeng not to do superfluous things.”
As thanks for Zeng Yiheng’s neutral attitude in his previous life, Tao Mu gave the other some good advice. As long as one was under the halo of the plot, anyone who wanted to dismantle the official CP would not end well. Tao Mu didn’t want to see Zeng Yiheng turning into cannon fodder.
However, Zeng Yiheng didn’t believe in this evil: “I don’t know why Mr. Tao thinks this way, but Yan Sheng is my childhood friend and my business partner. Whether for the sake of our friendship or our career I won’t let Yan Sheng be confused into being with Shen Yu.”
“You don’t have to have such a big reaction.” Tao Mu chuckled, “Maybe it’s true love for the two of them!”
Zeng Yiheng seemed to be disgusted by this remark. After a long pause, he smiled and said, “Mr. Tao really knows how to tell jokes.”
Zeng Yiheng changed the subject and asked directly: “I want to ask Mr. Tao, when you went to burn incense and worship at temples before, which temple do you think was the most effective?”
Tao Mu didn’t speak, and looked behind Zeng Yiheng.
Zeng Yiheng turned his head and saw Shen Yu standing there pitifully, clutching the script in his arms, and said aggrievedly: “Mu Mu, Big brother Zeng, what are you two talking about?”
Zeng Yiheng’s head was covered with black lines, and he blurted out, “When did you get here?” He didn’t know how long Shen Yu had been standing here, nor how much Shen Yu heard. However, discussing his best friend’s little boyfriend with others behind his back, and even getting caught on the spot. Zeng Yiheng also felt embarrassed.
“I just got here.” Shen Yu looked at Zeng Yiheng with a puzzled expression. He didn’t understand why big brother Yan’s agent had such a big reaction.
“Ah, oh,” Zeng Yiheng coughed twice, a little embarrassed: “Are you looking for me or Mr. Tao?”
“I’m looking for Mu Mu.” Shen Yu carefully looked at Tao Mu while holding the script: “I want to ask Mu Mu to practice the lines with me. What were you two talking about?”
“Which temple in Hong Kong has the most powerful incense.” Zeng Yiheng spoke before Tao Mu and said solemnly, “I also want to take Yan Sheng to go worship.”
Hearing this, Shen Yu’s face blushed, and don’t know what thought had flashed in his mind at the moment, but he said sheepishly: “Alright. When big brother Yan accompanied me on a night tour of Hong Kong, it was too late. We didn’t get a chance to visit the temples. After you have found out which temples, I’ll go with you two another day.”
He remembered that Tao Mu and Li Xiaoheng went together at the beginning. He heard that they even got a superior bamboo stick fortune. If there was a chance, he also wanted to go and have his fortune told——especially about his love fortune.
Zeng Yiheng’s face turned green. He stuttered and brushed it off perfunctorily. Without waiting for Shen Yu to say anything, he immediately got up and left in a sullen manner.
Shen Yu looked at Zeng Yiheng’s back and said thoughtfully, “Brother Zeng doesn’t seem to like me very much?”
Shen Yu turned to look at Tao Mu: “What did you tell him? He seems to have misunderstood me.”
Tao Mu had always felt impatience with Shen Yu: “Go ask him yourself.”
“Why can’t you tell me yourself?” Shen Yu stood in front of Tao Mu while still holding the script, and said confidently: “You don’t have to be shy. In fact, I heard your conversation just now. You told big brother Zeng that big brother Yan and I are a match made in heaven. We are true love. You also advised big brother Zeng to accept the fact that we are together. Mu Mu, thank you for supporting us so much. I was wrong before. I thought you really hated me and big brother Yan. I didn’t expect you to be so optimistic about us.”
Tao Mu’s words “true love” made Zeng Yiheng almost nauseated just now. But now he himself was disgusted by Shen Yu and had practically the same nauseous feelings as Zeng Yiheng.
Shen Yu couldn’t understand Tao Mu’s mood at all. Still like a beautiful white lotus flower, he stood there gracefully. He was moved to tears and continued on as if he was speaking to himself: “You are such an awkward person. Just say it if you like me. Why do you have to hurt me so much in front of me, and then protect me so much in front of others behind my back. Everything you did, I don’t even know. What if I misunderstand you? Actually, you also want to make friends with me, right? You were so vicious to me before, it must be because you were angry that I misunderstood you. I want to apologize to you and forgive you by the way.”
When Shen Yu said this, he huffed softly, wrinkled his little nose and whispered, “I don’t blame you for being so cruel to me anymore~”
Tao Mu rubbed his arms expressionlessly, watching goosebumps fall all over the floor. He had always admired Shen Yu’s self-talking brain circuit. But he never thought that Shen Yu’s skill could still level up.
He had clearly expressed his attitude, so why could Shen Yu still draw another set of completely opposite conclusions from his speech and behavior? This could no longer be explained by a filter or rosy tinted glasses.
Could it be that after being one with Yan Sheng, the halo of the plot had strengthened its radiation?
Otherwise, how could it be explained that even though Shen Yu clearly knew his attitude, yet he was able to come up with such a bizarre explanation overnight.
Tao Mu couldn’t understand, and was too lazy to think about it. He silently got up and put three meters between himself and Shen Yu.
Shen Yu stood on the spot with the script in his arms, smiling like a cat that just caught a fish. He was caught off guard when someone asked him from behind: “What are you laughing at?”
Shen Yu was startled and quickly recovered. It turned out that it was Yan Sheng who had just finished styling.
“Big brother Yan.” Shen Yu greeted with a smile, and loudly announced his discovery: “I don’t think Mu Mu hates us at all. It turns out that he has been caring about us behind the scenes. He also said that we are a match made in heaven.”
Yan Sheng looked at Shen Yu’s smiling face, and his face sank. Sure enough, he knew that his kitten had special feelings for Tao Mu. But Xiao Yu was already his. He couldn’t stand it, if there were still others hidden in the little one’s heart. It was even more intolerable for Shen Yu’s thoughts to be affected by others.
He wanted to let Xiao Yu know that only he was the best and only he could bring true happiness to Xiao Yu.
“Don’t be deceived by Tao Mu’s smooth talking. He could bear to hurt you before, and he will do so again.” Yan Sheng held Shen Yu’s shoulder and made up his mind secretly.
His little one was always so innocent and kind, willing to believe no matter what others say. But Tao Mu was a person who hid nefarious intentions, for the safety of Xiao Yu. He had to keep Xiao Yu away from Tao Mu.
Yan Sheng’s eyes darkened, and he swore to himself secretly.
That afternoon was his first scene with Tao Mu. He wanted to let Tao Mu know what film king-level acting was. He wanted to let Shen Yu thoroughly see Tao Mu’s character.
This person was not worthy of Xiao Yu’s worship and concern at all.

“Big brother Yan?” Shen Yu looked at Yan Sheng with confusion.
However, Yan Sheng, who had always been so caring to him, did not reply. He was silent and thoughtful, lost to thoughts unknown.
