Tao Mu didn’t stay in Luo Yang’s hospital room for long. To be more precise, it was when Luo Xi received a call from old Mrs. Luo and learned that the Lin family from Hong Kong had come to visit old Mr. Luo’s hospital room. Luo Xi was afraid that the people from the Lin family from Hong Kong would say something that shouldn’t be said in front of old Mr. Luo, and caused old Mr. Luo to be so angry he fell ill again, so after she hurried back after hanging the phone call, Tao Mu also took the opportunity to take his leave.

After leaving the hospital, Tao Mu originally wanted to go back to the headquarters of FlyNews.com and discuss with his Xiao Qi Dad about contacting the military department and the publicity department to shoot a military drama. Looking at the time and seeing that it was almost noon, Tao Mu thought for a while and drove the car directly to Xiaoheng Capital to find their CEO Li for lunch.
Tao Mu was also a partner of Xiaoheng Capital, and he could freely enter and leave the company building. It was just that when entering the CEO’s office, the secretary needed to report in advance.
Li Xiaoheng did not expect that Tao Mu would come to him, and immediately put down the documents in hand, clearly looking a little overjoyed. Seeing this, Assistant Jiang, who was currently reporting his work to the boss, couldn’t help but secretly laugh, and then spoke faster to finish relaying the main points. After receiving Li Xiaoheng’s approval, he stepped back and left with great discernment.
“I’m here to find you for lunch.” Tao Mu casually sat on the sofa, his slender legs crossed, and also casually reported what he had been up to just now.
“The people from the Lin family in Hong Kong have also arrived?” Li Xiaoheng raised his eyebrows. He also knew that Luo Yang and Lin Rong’an had a big fight in the entertainment club and both suffered losses. Old Mr. Luo was so angry that he had a heart attack because of this incident, and Li Xiaoheng had even gone for a hospital visit with the rest of 5the Li family.
In fact, according to Li Xiaoheng, he felt that Tao Mu could have also gone with the Li family. It was a pity that Tao Mu didn’t agree to it and insisted on going alone.
Li Xiaoheng failed to invite Tao Mu to make the hospital visit together, so when he returned home, he was naturally ridiculed by Chairman Li again. This time, even Mrs. Li and his younger siblings were not on his side. Third brother Li, who had always been slightly intimidated by him, even had his courage swell to the point where he held a copy of “The Complete Love Skills” and attempted to act as a mentor in front of him, chattering endlessly on the tricks of chasing a life partner.
The plummeting family status made CEO Li, who was always stern and serious and at the top of the food chain, suddenly realized that if Tao Mu could not be brought home as soon as possible, his status and image in the family would always be defined by the word “coward”.
As CEO Li’s thoughts trailed off for a while, Tao Mu was still conflicted over what to eat for lunch. Speaking of which, his stinky habit of picky eating was worse than in his previous life, and it was something that his Grandpa Song had spoiled him into developing. Now, his appetite was becoming more and more “condescending”, and the dishes made by ordinary chefs were no longer able to grace his palette.
Li Xiaoheng watched with a warm smile as Tao Mu sat there thinking seriously about what dishes he wanted to eat, thinking about which private restaurant to go to try which chef’s craftsmanship. Suddenly, he felt that Tao Mu in this mode was very cute.
Tao Mu, who had never been described by the word “cute” in his past and present life, shuddered subconsciously, and finally decided to go to Wen Juxiang to eat mutton pot.
But as soon as the two came out of the company building, Tao Mu received a call from his Xiao Qi Dad who wanted to discuss with him about the celebration party held for “The Great Wall of Flesh and Blood” as well as the matter involving Tao Mu’s classmates signing to his film and television company.
“It just happened to be lunchtime, you can talk while eating.”
The date of two who managed to find time to meet with such difficulty suddenly turned into a three-person lunch meeting. When Meng Qi drove to Wen Juxiang, he realized that he had accidentally become a third wheel.
But Mr. Meng not only did not feel guilty, but rather gloated happily. He pulled out the chair with a smile and sat down, not forgetting to apologize to Li Xiaoheng in a fake fashion: “Uncle didn’t disturb the date between the two of you?”
Tao Mu smiled and said, “No. What date, we just haven’t seen each other very much in recent days, so we just decided to have a meal together.”
Tao Mu’s attitude was so magnanimous that Meng Qi couldn’t make fun any longer. Li Xiaoheng could only act as if nothing happened, but in fact he responded affirmatively with a very aggrieved voice, then picked up the sesame sauce and other seasonings on the table, and helped Tao Mu prepare the dipping sauce.
Tao Mu loved to use sesame sauce when he ate hot pot. So when eating mutton hotpot, he specially asked for a whole bowl of sesame sauce with minced garlic, spicy millet, green onions, soy sauce and rice vinegar, plus a proper amount of sugar, sesame oil, chili oil poured on top. With this seasoning, Tao Mu could eat a big plate all by himself.
Meng Qi looked at Li Xiaoheng who was very familiar with preparing dipping sauces for Tao Mu and putting Tao Mu’s favorite ingredients into the copper pot without a moment of rest, and couldn’t help smiling. “You went to the hospital to see old Mr. Luo, how is he?”
Tao Mu heard his Xiao Qi Dad’s question, and only then remembered that old Mr. Luo wanted to recommend him to the task of producing the army conscription promotion drama. Instantly, he relayed the whole thing to his Xiao Qi Dad.
Meng Qi didn’t expect that old Mr. Luo, despite lying on the hospital bed, had the energy to ponder about this kind of thing, and couldn’t help chuckling: “This is a good thing. If such a drama can really be made, it will positively affect the image of FlyNews.com and BulletScreen.com as well as be beneficial for their future development. I will ask the people in the production department to file the project as soon as possible. As for the communication with the military department and the publicity department, I think it is better for you to come forward in person.”
Pausing, Meng Qi added: “It just so happens that you are also an actor. And your acting skills have been recognized by teachers in the industry. Although you have never been a male lead before, your reputation and image are not lacking than those of the A-list superstars. This time, for this cooperation with the military to shoot an army conscription promotion drama, due to the subject matter, I estimate the age of the protagonist to be about 18-20 years old. Which matches your age and image. If there are no complaints from the military side, you can also be the protagonist of the drama.”
Such a mainstream conscription promotion drama produced in cooperation with the military. As long as the filming was done, one could imagine how much help it would bring to Tao Mu’s acting career. The most important thing was that as the founder of FlyNews.com, Tao Mu was also a drama student professionally being trained. He was a sophomore this year, and he had not yet starred in a movie or TV series.
Thinking of this, Meng Qi couldn’t help but say: “Our Xiao Mu’s conditions are so good, it’s long overdue for you to be the leading actor. At that time, you can also bring back a best actor award. Lest some clownish people who relied on being in a few lousy dramas, and being the leading actor a few times, keep forcefully marketing themselves through you.”
In the final analysis, Meng Qi was still grumpy about Shen Yu’s actions. If it wasn’t for Tao Mu’s disagreement, Meng Qi really wanted to do something through FlyNews.com.
Fortunately, Shen Yu was blocked by SARFT now. In the future, he could no longer appear and disgust people in front of the media.
At this time, Meng Qi didn’t know that Shen Yu appeared in Luo Yang’s ward and acted out a scene from a dog-blood idol drama with Tao Mu. Tao Mu was too lazy to tell his Xiao Qi Dad these lousy things either. He just briefly mentioned his experience of visiting old Mr. Luo: “The operation was very successful, and his health is recovering. But when I came out of the hospital, I happened to see someone from the Lin family in Hong Kong came to visit old Mr. Luo. I wonder how those two families are discussing?”
Luo Yang and Lin Rong’an got into fisticuffs out of jealousy in the entertainment club. One broke his right leg and the other became an eunuch. Such explosive gossip had long been on the front page of FlyNews.com and other entertainment media. Thanks to the ban order just issued by SARFT, Shen Yu, this calamity that caused the fight between the two playboys, was not able to keep his name in the major newspapers and weekly magazines, but only referred to with the vague “S name artist” in the reports. Which happened to allow Shen Yu and the Shen family to keep a vague veneer of dignity.
Thinking of this, Meng Qi chuckled unconsciously: “…..I just received a call from the old madam of the Lin family this morning. In the tone of one ordering a servant, she asked FlyNews Entertainment to withdraw all reports related to Lin Rong’an. Otherwise, FlyNews.com would be held accountable for legal liability.”
When Li Xiaoheng heard this, he frowned and said: “FlyNews.com is a nationally recognized social platform, and FlyNews Entertainment is also a news media with relevant qualifications, and has the right to collect news information and report them. The Hong Kong Lin family wants to pursue FlyNews.com’s legal responsibility? By what right do they intend to hold FlyNews accountable? And how do they intend to hold FlyNews accountable?”

“I’m also very curious about this.” Meng Qi said with a smile, “So I had Lawyer Zhou communicate with them.”
Thinking of FlyNews.com’s weak, pitiful and helpless, but especially good at fighting chief legal advisor, Li Xiaoheng fell strangely silent. Inexplicably, he felt a little sorry for the Lin family who couldn’t understand the situation.
