After The Vicious Cannon Fodder Was Reborn CH 298 Extra 5: A Grand Wedding

Holding a wedding was a particularly troublesome matter for a rich family like the Li family, and a century-old family like the Song family whose traditions have been passed down for a long time and have the ability to maintain this kind of inheritance.

Fortunately, they gained experience from organizing the engagement ceremony before, and together with the preparation time of more than two years in advance, this time the Li family and old Mr. Song finally didn’t have to be as busy as they were during the engagement ceremony, and they could take things step by step or even nitpick and repeatedly finalize every detail——whether each dessert was salty or sweet, whether the flowers used at the wedding were roses or lilies, and whether the patterns on the chopsticks should be mandarin ducks entwining their necks or platycodon flowers. It was all things that seemed rather inconsequential to Tao Mu and Li Xiaoheng.

You c an fi nd t he la te st cha pte rs at ( th e ir on tr ee bl oo ms. c o m )

“That’s why you young people don’t understand! Why does the old saying always say that falling in love is a matter between two people, but marriage is a harmonizing between two families.”

It was a hot summer day, and it was rare to have a leisurely weekend. Liu Yao laid lazily at home, eating watermelon and playing with a tablet computer while enjoying the air conditioner. He also took the opportunity to set the family portrait that the whole family took together on Tao Mu’s graduation day as his screensaver: “Our old man is at such an advanced age, and only has you as his single grandson. How could he not be anxious when you get married? Let alone the Li family, Xiao Heng is the eldest son of their family. His marriage will definitely be a sensational event to the entire Beijing City! Don’t talk about anything else, let’s just talk about the piles of invitations. Those who know, know that you two are getting married, but those who don’t know might think that the Li family is going to hold some kind of business summit!”

In addition, Tao Mu had quite a few relatives and friends on his side as well. Excluding the industry friends and business partners accumulated in the entertainment and business circles over the years, there were still many old friends of the Song family, plus the social circle of Meng Qi and Liu Yao. All things added up, it was estimated that the number of guests invited on the day of the wedding banquet could exceed four figures.

There were so many people, including many wealthy business figures, young and old. Considering the venue and security support, the Li family finally decided to hold the wedding, after discussing with Mr. Song, on a private island under the Li family’s name. In order to ensure nothing goes wrong, as early as a month before the wedding, the private island which was located somewhere in the Pacific Ocean was essentially put under martial law. On the wedding day, all guests would fly directly to the island by private jet.

Apparently, when the Li family was finalizing the wedding process, they even thought about holding the wedding ceremony on the plane. They intended the two children to exchange rings at an altitude of thousands of meters, under the blessing eyes of all the guests, and then land on the island by parachuting. During this period, there would be fireworks blooming in the bright daytime sky. The whole scene was to be quite grand.

In the end, because the hardware facilities did not allow it——there was no giant airliner with a capacity of more than a thousand people in the world, so Father Li and Mother Li had to regretfully give up this romantic and rather deadly wedding ceremony. It also made the relatively conservative old Mr. Song heave a sigh of relief——because the Li family elders were very active in following old Mr. Song’s advice during the engagement ceremony, and adopted a Chinese wedding model. When it came to the actual wedding ceremony, considering the feelings of the Li family, old Mr. Song also offered to propose that the wedding process this time should be based on the Li family’s wishes. But old Mr. Song never expected that Father Li and Mother Li, who both looked so proper and serious on the surface, would be even less reliable than the two children. At one time suggesting skydiving wedding vows, then underwater wedding photos. This attitude of going up to ninth cloud to cover the moon and down to the five oceans to catch turtles was simply too much for old Mr. Song to hold up against.

Fortunately, after some hard work, old Mr. Song finally dispelled all kinds of whimsical suggestions from the Li parents and seniors, and finally put the wedding ceremony on the ground, avoiding the greatest possibility of turning the wedding of the two children into a classic Romeo & Juliet death of lovers scene.

But old Mr. Song could only do this much. As for the requests of the elders of the Li family for all kinds of whimsical ideas at the wedding ceremony, old Mr. Song really didn’t have the energy to object to them one by one, and as for the couple Liu Yao and Meng Qi, they had already raised their hands and surrendered early when the Li family elders proposed that the wedding be held at the bottom of the sea.

“However, I think a wedding in the air or a wedding under the sea is quite interesting. I never thought your parents would be so avant-garde and open-minded.” Liu Yao patted Li Xiaoheng on the shoulder. However, he didn’t dare to say this in front of old Mr. Song. In fact, when Father Li and Mother Li mentioned the underwater wedding, he was already quite tempted. He also wanted to have a romantic underwater commemoration with Meng Qi after Tao Mu and Li Xiaoheng’s wedding. In fact, aerial weddings were also a pretty good suggestion. But Meng Qi was afraid of heights and couldn’t skydive.

Tao Mu and Li Xiaoheng nodded repeatedly, showing a tacit smile at Yao Dad. In fact, the two of them also quite like skydiving and sea diving. However, considering old Mr. Song’s acceptance, they finally gave up such a fun and exciting wedding mode——it was not too late to try it out during the honeymoon! Anyway, the island and the plane belong to the Li family. After the wedding ceremony, everyone could spend a few more days on the island.

“I’ve grown this old but I’ve yet to see what a private island looks like until now! I’m really looking forward to it!” Meng Qi came out of the kitchen carrying the freshly squeezed watermelon juice. The watermelon was just taken out of the refrigerator, and it was ice cold. After taking it out, layers of water droplets condensed on the skin. There were even a few ice cubes floating on it, making it look even more refreshing.

Meng Qi signaled Tao Mu and Li Xiaoheng to pour for themselves, and couldn’t help but count on his fingers: “You two’s wedding is scheduled for September 9th. Calculating the time, it is in just a little over two months.”

“Two months and nine days!” Tao Mu and Li Xiaoheng emphasized in unison. This made Liu Yao and Meng Qi chuckle. At a glance, they could see through to the eagerness and impatience of the two boys.

There was no doubt that they were counting the days on their fingers!

Under everyone’s anticipation, September 9th finally arrived. The night before, all the guests who would attend the wedding ceremony flew to the Li family’s private island on two private luxury jumbo jets specially customized by the Li family.

According to the requirements of the Li elders, the interior of the plane had been arranged similar to a wedding venue. A huge wedding photo of Tao Mu and Li Xiaoheng was sprayed exaggeratedly on the fuselage outside. As a result, the first thing many guests did when they arrived at the airport was not to get on the plane, but to take out their mobile phones to take selfies with the plane. That scene was almost like that of a tourist attraction site.

“If you want to talk about grand, your Li family is the number one! There is even a private island just to get married on!” As Tao Mu’s closest (self-appointed) business partner in the entertainment industry, Long Tianao said solemnly: “I really didn’t expect that a family with such righteous morals like the Li family would like this kind of domineering CEO style. They are even better than a Long Aotian like me in showing off. Next time our company makes an idol drama, we must invite Chairman Li to come on as a consultant.”

Tao Mu and Li Xiaoheng just laughed and said nothing. Luo Yang, who was tanned so dark he resembled coal, walked behind his sister Luo Xi. When the scandal about Luo Yang’s jealous brawl with the third young master Lin came out, old Mr. Luo was so angry that he really threw Luo Yang into the army for reform. Luo Yang refused at first. He had been pampered and spoiled for so many years, even when he was studying abroad, he never suffered any hardship, so how could he bear the pain of training in the army. So he even tried to run back. But after being whipped several times by old Mr. Luo with the belt, he finally became obedient.

At that time, old Mr. Luo and Luo Yang made a three-pronged agreement. As long as Luo Yang could stay in the army obediently for two years, stick to his service time as a conscript, and fulfill his obligations as a soldier, old Mr. Luo agreed to let Luo Yang demobilize. Unexpectedly, after several years of experience in the army, Luo Yang, who gritted his teeth and persevered, got used to life in the army. He even achieved a personal second-class merit award. If Tao Mu and Li Xiaoheng weren’t about to get married this time, Luo Yang wouldn’t have come out of the army at all.

“Congratulations to the two of you on your marriage. I wish you two a happy and long union.” Luo Yang, whose white and tender skin was tanned and his body was much more muscular than before, stretched out his hand to Tao Mu: “I was a bastard back then. Relying on my family background and bullying you so hard, but never apologized to you. Now I finally have a chance. Tao Mu, I’m sorry.”

Tao Mu looked at Luo Yang, the playboy back then had now completely turned into a soldier. Such a radical change made Tao Mu look at Luo Yang in front of him, and completely unable to remember the grievances of the past.

“It’s okay.” Tao Mu stretched out his hand to shake Luo Yang’s hand, and said frankly, “In any case, Chairman Luo helped me vent my anger.”

“You mean that incident exposed by FlyNews Entertainment about my fight with surnamed Lin that got my leg broken by my father?” Luo Yang suddenly smiled, flashing a mouthful of white teeth: “Then you are right, the two of us are even.”

“We’re even.” Tao Mu responded lightly. The two looked at each other and smiled.

Luo Yang continued to show off his white teeth: “Actually, we even prepared gifts for you to celebrate your marriage.”

“We?” Tao Mu repeated curiously.

“That’s right, we.” Long Tianao replied to Tao Mu’s words, and pointed to himself proudly, as well as Luo Xi, Luo Yang in front of him, as well as Feng Yuan, Gou Rixin, Qin Miaoru, Du Kang, Wen Bao, Chu Sui’an and the younger brothers and sisters of the Li family, as well as Big Brother Yun Yi, Lawyer Zhou Shenxing, and said mysteriously: “All of us prepared a big wedding gift together.”

“But we can’t tell you yet. This is a surprise.”

A surprise announced in advance? Tao Mu was a little speechless, but still looked forward to it.

The plane arrived at the island that afternoon. The next day was the official wedding. Because old Mr. Song tried his best to stop it, the wedding finally became one that was grand, romantic and conventional. Tao Mu and Li Xiaoheng exchanged rings under the witness of thousands of guests.

That night, bathed in the starry sky, Tao Mu and Li Xiaoheng, with the help of professional divers, put on their diving suits, carried oxygen cylinders on their backs, and quietly dived into the sea.

Different from the hustle and bustle during the day, the sea water at night looked so quiet and deep. The deep blue water rendered the whole world dreamy and quiet, with all kinds of beautiful sea fish swimming around. Tao Mu relaxed, thinking that this would be a trip for him and Li Xiaoheng. But unexpectedly, after swimming for a while, dots of lights suddenly came from ahead. Tao Mu and Li Xiaoheng swam in the direction of the light, and were surprised to find many people gathered in front, with flashlights in their hands. At first glance, many people appear to be floating in the sea in disarray. However, when Tao Mu took a closer look, he found that the positions of these people looked scattered, but they were actually quite organized. Nearly a hundred people were floating up and down in the sea water, and the flashlights held in front of their chests were also moving along with them, forming eight large words.

“A happy century together, forever united in love.”

In addition to these eight words, there were many people holding flashlights to form a galaxy of stars, which was constantly flickering around Tao Mu and Li Xiaoheng——after learning about the wedding gift prepared by Long Tianao and other friends, the younger siblings of the Li family as well as some young invited guests voluntarily participated as well.

One could not speak under seawater, but everyone’s feelings were the same. They all held the best wishes and hopes that Tao Mu and Li Xiaoheng, this newlywed couple, would be happy forever. Everyone around Tao Mu and Li Xiaoheng kept waving their flashlights, expressing their emotions excitedly.

Tao Mu and Li Xiaoheng were stunned, not expecting that everyone would give them such a delightful surprise. Besides the crowd, there were four more people swimming over slowly. It was Liu Yao, Meng Qi and Li Xiaoheng’s parents. The four elders swam in front of Tao Mu and Li Xiaoheng, and formed a circle around Tao Mu and Li Xiaoheng hand in hand, which meant that from now on, the two families’ elders would do their best to shelter the two younger generations from the wind and rain.

On the surface of the sea, old Mr. Song, who was unable to enter the water due to his old age, shook his head in gratification and regret: “This is too much fuss…..I can’t even go down.”

Standing next to old Mr. Song, old Mr. Li, who also failed to be able to enter the water, smiled and patted his old in-law’s shoulders: “This is the romance of the young people. We old people just need to watch from the side.”

Old Mr. Song nodded helplessly. Dean Tao, who was also sitting on the deck of the speedboat, also smiled.

That’s right, even if the elders were old and they couldn’t give the children the fresh excitement and romantic life they wanted. But they could still accompany the children in other ways, trying their best to protect the happy life the children wanted.

This was probably what a family was, the meaning of the existence of family elders!

In the seawater, Tao Mu, who never thought that his friends and family members would concoct such a big move, was so touched that he couldn’t help crying, and even had to surface early due to lack of oxygen.

After returning to the boat, Tao Mu, who was still wearing a diving suit, couldn’t wait to take off the oxygen cylinder and eye mask, hugging his Yao Dad, Xiao Qi Dad and Mother Li, and even wanted to hug old Mr. Song and old Mr. Li who were standing on the boat, and said with a choked voice: “Thank you, thank you all.”

In this life, having you all by my side is really my greatest fortune.

“We’re all family, what’s there to thank!” Liu Yao and Meng Qi smiled at each other, and patted Tao Mu’s back tenderly. Li Xiaoheng also put his arm around Tao Mu’s shoulders.

And not far away, nearly a hundred other friends also floated up one after another. Everyone either floated in the sea or climbed onto the yacht, smiling and watching Tao Mu, who came up one step earlier, acting like a baby in the arms of his elders, and couldn’t help laughing and whistling.

“Be happy!”

“A happy century together!”

“To grow old together!”

“Forever united in love!”

“No shame, no shame!”

You c an fi nd t he la te st cha pte rs at ( th e ir on tr ee bl oo ms. c o m )

Hearing the blessings from his friends, Tao Mu, who was also held in Li Xiaoheng’s arms, nodded fiercely. He firmly believed that he would be happy in this life.

Just like the protagonist in a fairy tale, after the story was over, with the company of all family members and friends, he would always live a happy life without shame.

The End.

TN: My longest TL project of 2 years, has finally completed! Although I will miss it, I am also glad to move on *sheds a waterfall of tears* Thank you all for the support and making this happen 💛💜. Just like our favorite Taoli couple has their happy ending, this 2 year long TL project can also end on a celebratory note🍾🥂🎉🎆

After The Vicious Cannon Fodder Was Reborn CH 297 Extra 4: Getting The Marriage Certificate

On the day of the graduation ceremony, at two o’clock in the afternoon, the bustling media reporters and young fans with cameras and posters on the sidewalk opposite the Civil Affairs Bureau.

The nanny car had just driven into the section of the street where the Civil Affairs Bureau was located, and from a distance, one could already see crowds of people opposite the Civil Affairs Bureau. The Ceramics standing on the sidewalk also noticed Tao Mu’s nanny car, and immediately excitedly waved the fan posters of Tao Mu and Li Xiaoheng they made and the flashbulb signs wishing them a happy marriage. At the same time, there were also organized cheering slogans from the crowd——

You c an fi nd t he la te st cha pte rs at ( th e ir on tr ee bl oo ms. c o m )

“To the Taoli couple, we wish you a happy marriage for a hundred years.”

The slogans practiced in advance were uniform, and the voices of the Ceramics could be heard even by the office staff on the top floor of the Civil Affairs Bureau building. But no one rushed forward to block the nanny car. There were none of the things that Tao Mu had worried about before happening, which would affect the normal work order of the Civil Affairs Bureau. Seeing this astonishing scene, even the media reporters who were running to the nanny car couldn’t help but stop and press the shutter to take pictures of this scene.

A leader of the Civil Affairs Bureau, who had been paying attention to the movement outside, couldn’t help but praise: “Tao Mu’s fans are of high quality!”

There were so many people gathered outside, at first the Civil Affairs Bureau was worried whether the presence of these fans would affect their normal work. Fortunately, the big fans of Tao Mu Fan Club and the staff of Tao Mu Film and Television Company cooperated tacitly and managed the other small fans very well. Nearly thousands of fans gathered without any signs of clamor or noise. Even before Tao Mu’s nanny car appeared, thousands of fans stood silently across the street, hardly making a sound. If they didn’t stick their heads out of the window from time to time to take a look, they wouldn’t have even noticed so many people gathered outside.

Such fans who were so disciplined and quiet were so rare that even the staff of the Civil Affairs Bureau were shocked. “As expected of a bigwig’s fans.”

Although he was worried about whether the actions of the fans would affect the normal work of the Civil Affairs Bureau, and as a result he had sent staff from his film and television company to contact the big fans of the fan club in advance to help maintain order. Tao Mu didn’t expect his fans to be so well behaved. Standing under the sun for so long in the midsummer season, they really didn’t cause any trouble for him at all.

“You are all good children.” Tao Mu, who got off the nanny car, walked up to the fans and waved to everyone with a smile: “Thank you for coming. Thank you for your long-term support.”


Before Tao Mu finished speaking, the Ceramics staking out on the street opposite the Civil Affairs Bureau were already so excited that their voices broke.

“Tao Mu, we will always support you!”

“Tao Mu, we love you!”

“Tao Mu, you and CEO Li must be happy!”

Of course, there were also some alternative voices that were particularly eye-catching amidst the noisy screams and blessings.

“It doesn’t matter if you are not happy. Tao Mu, you still have me, I will always wait for you!”

Before they even finished speaking, Mr. Li threw a sharp eye knife over, and some love rivals hidden among the fans suddenly fell silent. There was another burst of laughter from the crowd. Some of the Taoli couple CP fans held up the chibi fanart version of them and shouted: “It doesn’t matter, we still support you!”

“Mr. Li, you have to treat Tao Mu good!”

Due to time constraints, Tao Mu had no way to sign autographs for the fans, and of course he couldn’t take pictures with everyone, so he waved his hand and said, “We’ll go in first to get the certificates, and you all don’t leave. I’ll treat everyone to dinner tonight.”

The Ceramics agreed with a look of surprised delight. Tao Mu and Li Xiaoheng didn’t say any more, waved to everyone again, and then entered the door of the Civil Affairs Bureau.

The two walked directly to the lobby of the marriage registration office with the staff in charge of recording the vlog.

It was his first marriage in several lifetimes of reincarnation. Tao Mu, who had never been in the Civil Affairs Bureau even for filming, seemed particularly nervous. CEO Li, who could stir up storms in the international financial market, was similar. The two of them coincidentally had the same expression, walking to the window with a very serious expression. That appearance was similar to two people preparing to go to the international negotiating table. So much so that the staff of the Civil Affairs Bureau couldn’t help but also become serious.

According to the process, before getting the marriage certificates, one must first fill in an “Application for Marriage Registration Certificate”. Tao Mu and Li Xiaoheng carefully browsed the form, filled it out carefully, and then exchanged with each other——

All of a sudden, including the staff of the Civil Affairs Bureau and the production team members standing behind to record the event, everyone had the illusion that they were participating in a contract signing ceremony.

The staff of the Civil Affairs Bureau suppressed their smiles and motioned Tao Mu and Li Xiaoheng to read the last paragraph.

Li Xiaoheng subconsciously stood up. The staff of the Civil Affairs Bureau hurriedly said: “You don’t need to stand up, just sit and read.”

Li Xiaoheng sat down again with a serious expression: “My statement above is completely true. If there is any falsehood, I am willing to bear legal responsibility.”

The staff of the Civil Affairs Bureau took a look at Li Xiaoheng’s aura that made him seem like he was about to go to court, and lowered their heads with twitching mouths pursed tight.

After Tao Mu repeated the above paragraph, the staff motioned for the two to press their fingerprints. Then their marriage certificates were issued to the two.

“That’s it?” Li Xiaoheng took the marriage certificate with some disbelief. Checking back and forth.

In fact, there was another process of taking an oath after that. Because the news that Tao Mu and Li Xiaoheng were going to receive their marriage certificates directly on the day of graduation had spread all over the Internet since a few years ago. Coupled with the fact that Tao Mu was about to graduate so the media reporters kept reporting the old news. Many couples who were going to get married in the near future also calculated the time and rushed to the Civil Affairs Bureau to get their marriage certificates on the same day.

So as soon as Tao Mu and Li Xiaoheng entered the Civil Affairs Bureau, they found that there were a lot of newlyweds who came to collect their marriage certificates today. And there were quite a few newlyweds who received their marriage certificates in the morning but never left. They all wanted to witness the process of Tao Mu and Li Xiaoheng, the “Internet celebrity couple”, getting their marriage certificates with their own eyes.

So when it came time to take the oath, there were a lot of newlyweds who took the oath together with Tao Mu and Li Xiaoheng. Considering the live broadcast of that was still going on, Tao Mu and Li Xiaoheng originally wanted to wait until everyone had finished taking their oaths. However, many newlyweds expressed that they would not mind appearing with Tao Mu and Li Xiaoheng on screen. There were also people who were very straightforward and expressed that it was exactly because they wanted to rub off on the Taoli couple’s luck that they got their marriage certificates on the same day.

Seeing everyone saying this, Tao Mu and Li Xiaoheng stopped insisting. Standing on the dais together with several other couples who voluntarily appeared on the screen, they held up their marriage certificates bound with a red cover and read aloud: “We voluntarily become husband and husband/wife. From today onwards, we will jointly shoulder the responsibilities and obligations entrusted to us by marriage; to be filial to our parents, to respect and love each other, to trust and encourage each other, to forgive and give in to each other, and to help each other…..whether in good times or in adversity, in poverty or in wealth, in health or in sickness, we must stand together through thick and thin, share weal and woe, and become lifelong partners.”

You c an fi nd t he la te st cha pte rs at ( th e ir on tr ee bl oo ms. c o m )

Under the high-definition camera, the Taoli couple who were tall and handsome, stood among many new couples and read the wedding vows with everyone. And this scene was faithfully recorded by the camera and witnessed by netizens across the country. The two people who have been tricked by fate for several lifetimes firmly believed that they would be able to keep today’s oath.

Regardless of good times or bad times, poverty or wealth, health or disease, even life and death, time and space, they could no longer be separated.

After The Vicious Cannon Fodder Was Reborn CH 296 Extra 3: Graduation Ceremony & Speech

Beijing Film’s graduation ceremony was scheduled for the last Tuesday in June. As one of Beijing Film’s outstanding graduates, Tao Mu would speak on behalf of all the graduates at the graduation ceremony. In the eyes of Liu Yao, Meng Qi, old Mr. Song and others, regardless of Tao Mu’s status in society, this was probably the most honorable thing for a student.

As Tao Mu’s family members, Liu Yao, Meng Qi and old Mr. Song got up early in the morning. After carefully putting on their custom-made suit, they dawdled in front of the mirror for a few extra minutes. Seeing that the clock on the wall had reached six o’clock, they went into the kitchen and put the freshly cooked mini wontons into the thermos container, grabbed the bag of wedding candy that had been prepared long ago from the coffee table, and the family of three strolled downstairs, taking a leisurely walk in their way to the gated community next door. Neighbors in the neighborhood who got up in the morning to exercise or walk the dog saw the neat family of three, took a whiff of the delicious scent and greeted with a smile: “…..It smells so good! Mr. Song’s craftsmanship is indeed good. Sending breakfast to Mr. Tao and Mr. Li again?”

You c an fi nd t he la te st cha pte rs at ( th e ir on tr ee bl oo ms. c o m )

Old Mr. Song responded with a smile: “My grandson is graduating today and the morning will be busy, so he definitely doesn’t have time to eat.”

“It’s not as simple as graduating.” The neighbors who read the news every day said with a smile, “Mr. Tao and Mr. Li are going to get their marriage certificates this afternoon, right? Don’t forget to let us know when the wedding will be held.”

“We will definitely remember.” The smiles on Liu Yao and Meng Qi’s faces couldn’t be restrained even if they wanted to, and took out boxes of wedding candies and handed them to the neighbors around them.

Tao Mu and Li Xiaoheng live in a high-end community very close to the central CBD. It was less than half an hour’s walk from Li Xiaoheng’s company headquarters. Other than being affected by smog and sandstorms and the air quality being a bit poor, there were no other problems. Tao Mu and Li Xiaoheng moved here for the convenience of commuting to and from getting off work (of course it was more convenient to work overtime). Of course, most of the other residents in the community thought the same. So much so that when old Mr. Song and Liu Yao and Meng Qi first moved here, they would encounter the cover characters of financial magazines or financial weekly every time they took a walk. And most of these bosses were clients of Xiaoheng Capital or This often meeting at work and encountering each other frequently after work had Liu Yao and Meng Qi secretly wondering whether Li Xiaoheng moved here to create an atmosphere for working overtime.

After distributing wedding candies one by one, the family of three slowly entered the elevator of the building. When they entered the apartment, Tao Mu and Li Xiaoheng had already woken up. The room was full of people, makeup artists, stylists, the BulletScreen production team carrying cameras for live streaming, and two reporters from FlyNews Entertainment.

In the past two years, Tao Mu had repeatedly produced classic works with good box office sales, reputation and ratings as an actor and producer, and more and more people became fans of Tao Mu and followed Tao Mu. These people were no longer satisfied with watching Tao Mu’s performance through the screen, and looked forward to meeting Tao Mu in reality. However, in order to take care of the work of and several other companies, Tao Mu had no time to hold a fan meeting. As the CEO of, and several other companies, Tao Mu usually did not accept commercial jobs or endorsements. Even the most ordinary fans couldn’t be satisfied, and even on every birthday it was just a live stream on the Internet. As things went on like this, the expectations accumulated by the fans were getting thicker and thicker.

So this time, when the Beijing Film Academy had just announced the time for this year’s graduation ceremony on its official account. The Ceramics who have been looking forward to it for a long time could no longer hold back, and they all ran to Tao Mu’s FlyNews to leave pitiful messages, asking him to take this opportunity to organize a celebrity fan meeting——it was fine even if it was not a formal celebrity fan meeting, they just wanted to witness Tao Mu’s graduation ceremony and the process of Tao Mu and Li Xiaoheng going to the Civil Affairs Bureau to get their marriage certificates.

Having liked their idol for so long, fans also hope to have a ritual-filled witnessing process. While witnessing their idol’s happy life, they could also commemorate their four-year love for their idol.

As we all know, many star-chasing fans were not long-term fans. The most common in the entertainment circle were fickle fans who climbed walls in three months. But Tao Mu’s fans were exceptions. Almost most of them were diehard fans who have followed Tao Mu since he first entered school and founded This was of course because Tao Mu’s actual achievements were impressive enough,, and were too easy to use, and the financial analysis report given by Xiaoheng Capital was too accurate as well as in combination with other factors. But putting aside these things, four years of support and companionship were enough to prove something.

So this time, even Tao Mu who had a “stone heart” could not refuse the fans’ request. After thinking about it again and again, he still satisfied the wishes of the fans. In addition to agreeing that Tao Mu’s fan club could organize some Ceramics to stand outside Beijing Film and the Civil Affairs Bureau to witness Tao Mu’s graduation and certificate collection (as long as the actions of the fans do not affect the normal work of the school and the Civil Affairs Bureau), Tao Mu also promised to let FlyNews Entertainment follow the whole process on this day, and directly broadcast the whole process on Making sure that fans who could not come to Beijing due to work or other reasons could also witness the process of him receiving his graduation certificate and marriage certificate with their own eyes.

When Grandpa Song and Yao Dad and Xiao Qi Dad entered the door carrying mini wontons, Tao Mu had just finished styling, and was absolutely starving. His eyes lit up when he saw the thermos container in the old man’s hand, and looked very much like a little wolfhound just out of the nest.

“Yo, our Xiao Mu is really getting more and more handsome.” Liu Yao and Meng Qi looked at Tao Mu, who was sitting in front of the dressing table and letting the stylist tidy him up, and praised with a smile: “I can guarantee that you will be the best looking cub at the graduation ceremony of Beijing Film today.”

Old Mr. Song handed the thermos container to Li Xiaoheng, and couldn’t help but agree: “Of course my grandson is the most handsome. Anyone who is not convinced can stand forward and do a comparison.”

Tao Mu smiled and echoed, “I don’t dare to say anything else, but your grandson is definitely the most handsome cook, the best at cooking among actors, and the best at acting among producers.”

Li Xiaoheng poured the mini wontons in the thermos into a bowl and handed them to Tao Mu. The mini wontons stuffed with fresh meat were steaming hot. There were a few slices of coriander, seaweed and dried shrimp floating in the soup. A fresh and fragrant scent instantly permeated the room. All of a sudden, there were loud belly growling sounds one after another. The people holding up the lighting panel, the camera crew members and stylists all flushed——they got up too early in the morning and didn’t even have time to eat breakfast.

Old Mr. Song chuckled, and said, “Fortunately, I made a lot. You all have some to eat and fill your bellies. Let Xiao Mu treat you to dinner later.”

The eyes of the several employees lit up, and looked expectantly at Li Xiaoheng——or rather, the thermos container in his hand.

The corners of Li Xiaoheng’s mouth ticked up imperceptibly. He filled a bowl of mini wontons for himself, and said to everyone, “Go to the kitchen and get the bowls and chopsticks. Everyone can go ahead and serve yourselves.”

“Yeah!” The group of employees put down their work and rushed to the kitchen.

Ten minutes later, the group of people who had eaten to their content put down the bowls and chopsticks with satisfaction, which were almost cleaner than if they had been washed with dish detergent, and praised in unison: “Mr. Song’s craftsmanship is awesome.”

“So awesome!”

“Two thumbs up.”

“Our CEO Tao is so lucky to have a grandfather like you!”

Old Mr. Song smiled as he looked at this group of stinky boys who seemed to have honey in their mouths, and he was so happy that he couldn’t help grinning from ear to ear.

Due to the morning rush hour, when Tao Mu took his family in the nanny car, it took an hour and a half before they arrived at Beijing Film at a leisurely pace. It was already eight forty-five at this time. The graduation ceremony started at nine o’clock. Both sides of the school were already crowded with reporters and fans——not only Tao Mu’s fans, but also fans of other students. They all held banners celebrating their idol’s successful graduation, as well as support items such as posters and light boards. The gate was bustling with activity, and there were actually many small vendors who were attracted over after hearing the news and were now hawking their wares, adding to the noise.

Tao Mu spotted Qin Miaoru, Gou Rixin, Da Map, Xiao Pang, Feng Yuan and the group of children from the orphanage who were right in the middle of Ceramics. Even Dean Tao was there. Immediately, he didn’t know whether to laugh or cry. He got out of the car and walked up to the fans: “Why are you here?”

A burst of excited and high-pitched screams came from the crowd in an instant. The Ceramics who came into contact with their idol at close range were going crazy, and subconsciously surged forward. Fortunately, Tao Mu’s bodyguards and school security rushed out in time to maintain order, and the small leaders of the fan club tried their best to also cooperate, managing to prevent any accidents from happening.

The excited Ceramics calmed down a little, and immediately shouted: “CEO Tao, please sign an autograph for us?”

“And take a group photo!”

“And a hug!”

The crowd suddenly shouted one after the other in disorder. Seeing the popularity of their childhood friend/the boy who grew up under her watch, Dean Tao and the others were very pleased and said: “The children in the orphanage all want to see your graduation ceremony with their own eyes. I didn’t want to cause you trouble, so I simply contacted your fan club, and everyone came here to wait for you. It’s also quite meaningful.”

In fact, Tao Mu had sent an invitation to Dean Tao when the time for the graduation ceremony was just set. He wanted Dean Tao to accompany him to the graduation ceremony in the name of his family member. At that time, Dean Tao refused. Saying that the work of the orphanage was too busy, and she couldn’t get away for a while. Tao Mu was actually very disappointed. But he didn’t expect that Dean Tao had secretly kept a card up her sleeve. On the surface, she rejected Tao Mu’s invitation, but secretly she actually planned with the children in the orphanage and the clCeramics from Tao Mu’s fan club to come to show Tao Mu support.

Da Mao and Xiao Pang laughed and said: “Tao Mu, you don’t know, we are now the top management of your Beijing fan club! Brother Fansite Admin, get it?”

Da Mao held up the camera he had clutched in his hand, and said with a smile: “Don’t worry, I will definitely take handsome pictures of you today! My photography skills are very good now! I’m no worse than you.”

Qin Miaoru rolled her eyes at Da Mao, and said huffily, “Brother Fansite Admin, as if, they are called Sister Fansite Admin. Stupid Da Mao, you stole my position!”

Qin Miaoru, the self-proclaimed Sister Fansite Admin, patted Gou Rixin who was standing on the side. Gou Rixin was carrying the latest video camera of a certain international brand on his shoulders, and his posture was even more professional than the reporters waiting beside him.

Feng Yuan, who had grown into a 1.9-meter-tall boy, blushed and said succinctly, “I’m also a Ceramic.”

The little stutterer in the past had turned into an aloof male god, but his stuttering nature would immediately be exposed when he was excited: “Brother Mu, I wish you, a, a happy graduation.”

Tao Mu rubbed Feng Yuan’s cropped head with a happy expression. He looked at everyone with some emotion. Unexpectedly, everyone was so supportive and came to his graduation ceremony.

Just as he was about to say something, Qin Miaoru interrupted Tao Mu impatiently: “Oh my god, it’s almost nine o’clock. Don’t say anything, go in quickly. The graduation ceremony is about to begin.”

Tao Mu had no choice but to swallow his emotions back into his stomach, and said quickly: “When the graduation ceremony is over, there will be two hours to take pictures, and you guys can come in then.”

Then, Tao Mu supported Dean Tao’s arm, insisting that the elderly Dean Tao be a family member and follow him into the school.

When Tao Mu’s family rushed to the auditorium where the graduation ceremony was held, they saw the members of the Li family and the principal of Beijing Film standing together greeting each other, as well as many school leaders and other students’ parents surrounding them.

Seeing Tao Mu’s family enter the door, Father Li and Mother Li, who had been paying attention to the movement at the door, looked over immediately. Old Mr. Li harrumphed, and asked childishly, “Why did you only come now? We’ve been here for an hour.”

Everyone in the Li family also attached great importance to the graduation ceremony of their own son-in-law, especially as in the afternoon they would be going to get their marriage certificates. So they all got up early in the morning, and came to the school auditorium before eight o’clock. Unexpectedly, after waiting for almost an hour, the two brats Tao Mu and Li Xiaoheng arrived fashionably late. It really exemplified the saying “the emperor is not anxious but his eunuch are”.

Tao Mu and Li Xiaoheng walked over with smiles, and explained, “Make-up and styling took some time.”

Old Mr. Li took a serious look at Tao Mu, and commented with a stern face: “You are already handsome without makeup! If you put on makeup, you will be so handsome, and it would be too conspicuous when you take your graduation photos. What will other graduates do then?”

Tao Mu: “…..”

Li Xiaoheng: “…..”

The group of melon-eaters eavesdropping around them: “…..”

Probably because they didn’t expect old Mr. Li to praise his family member with such sincerity, the other people standing aside almost didn’t laugh out loud. The principal of Beijing Film coughed twice, managed to suppress his smile, and then said solemnly: “The ceremony will begin soon. Everyone should return to their seats.”

Everyone sat down under the guidance of the master of ceremonies. According to the college degree, Tao Mu sat with his three roommates, and next to them were students from Class 1 of the 2008 Department of Performance.

“The outstanding graduate is here!” Wen Bao started joking as soon as he saw Tao Mu, and raised a hand into a fist in front of Tao Mu, pretending to interview: “Mr. Outstanding Graduate, please express your thoughts, as the graduate representing so many students in the 2008 class to speak the graduation speech on stage, how does it feel——”

Before he could finish speaking, Du Kang pushed him away: “Look at what kind of question you are asking? You don’t have the slightest sense of entertainment at all.”

Du Kang was full of disdain for Wen Bao, so he seized the right to interview and asked Tao Mu, “May I ask Mr. Tao, what do you think of the practice of receiving your graduation certificate with one hand and your marriage certificate with the other on the day of graduation?”

The news that Tao Mu and Li Xiaoheng “will receive their marriage certificates on the day of graduation” had already been spread on the Internet a few years ago. Hearing Du Kang’s question, the students present immediately heckled and whistled quietly.

Tao Mu’s face was a little hot, and he pretended to be serious and said: “Don’t make trouble, don’t make trouble, the graduation ceremony has begun.”

The group of students looked at Tao Mu slyly. On the podium, the host had announced the commencement of the graduation ceremony. At the beginning, everyone stood up and sang the national anthem, followed by the principal’s speech, followed by the awarding of graduation certificates, speeches by the leaders and commendation of outstanding papers and outstanding graduates.

As the representative of outstanding graduates, Tao Mu would deliver a graduation speech at this time. When he walked to the podium under the eyes of everyone, he looked around at the school leaders, classmates and his most valued family members sitting under the stage. Li Xiaoheng held a bouquet of roses he had somehow gotten from nowhere in his arms, as if he was ready to go on stage to show his affection after he spoke. His Yao Dad, Xiao Qi Dad, Grandpa Song, Dean Tao, and the elders of the Li family all looked at him with smiles, and kept giving him thumbs up with both hands.

Looking at the familiar faces in the audience that were full of expectations and blessings, Tao Mu felt a sudden thrill of excitement in his heart. He put aside the speech he had prepared long ago, and began sincerely: “…..I grew up in an orphanage.”

Li Xiaoheng, who was sitting under the stage, looked over in surprise. He had seen Tao Mu’s original speech. But the beginning of the speech was not written in this way. The principal of Beijing Film and several other school leaders were also a little surprised. As the school leaders, of course they also read Tao Mu’s speech in advance. However, Tao Mu’s speech at this time did not conform to the content of the speech draft, and it was obvious that Tao Mu had changed his speech at the last moment.

“Many people think that the fate of an orphan who has no biological parents to protect them since childhood is bad. But I am very fortunate that my luck is quite good.” Tao Mu looked at the family members in the audience and said softly: “Since I was young, I have met too many good people. They all stretched out their hands without hesitation when I was at my most difficult in life. It was because of their dedication and care that I have come step by step to where I am today.”

“Thanks to Dean Tao, she provided me my first home. Although the condition of the orphanage was not good at that time, it was indeed the first place to shelter me from wind and rain in this life. Dean Tao taught me by word and deed, and taught me to be grateful. Taught me to know that no matter what kind of predicament a person was in, he must maintain kind thoughts. To know how to cherish people who treat you well. Only by learning to cherish, can you have more and more things in your life. Thanks to my Yao Dad, Xiao Qi Dad and Grandpa Song, they gave me a second home. They also let me know the true kinship of real family members, and that in fact, there is no need to be obsessed with blood relationship. I am very grateful for your appearance in my life, so that I, Tao Mu, could also feel the love of two fathers and a grandpa. I would also like to thank Beijing Film, this school is my third home and the cradle where my career started. Here I have been cultivated and encouraged by many teachers, as well as receiving the support of my classmates. The reason I, Tao Mu, could achieve what I have today is all thanks to the teaching and support of the school.”

“The last person I want to thank is our family’s Mr. Li.”

When Tao Mu said this, there was a burst of tacit laughter from the audience. Tao Mu’s smile became more gentle and warm: “Your existence proves to me that a person’s life is very long, but in such a long road, there is someone who can support you as you walk on it. How blessed I am.”

Li Xiaoheng’s expression was calm, with a domineering CEO expression on his face, but the hands holding the bouquet of roses betrayed his excited heart.

“Finally, what I want to talk about is the definition of success.” Tao Mu paused, and looked at all the students sitting in the audience: “Many people think that to be an actor, one must be famous, popular, and to be an A-list superstar is considered success. But the definition of success is not so superficial. We are still young, and there will be many opportunities in the future. So don’t limit your eyes to one work or one role. Try to pay attention to everyone around you, you must work hard to maintain your connection with everyone who is worthy of your cherishment around you. Us Chinese people place importance on people as the foundation. Only with people will there be hope. I take myself as an example. I, Tao Mu, could achieve today’s achievements because I have encountered many people in my life who were willing to help. I also cherish them very much, and I have grasped onto every person who was kind to me.”

“Perhaps many people think that my greatest achievement is the creation of,, and etc, but in my opinion, the most correct thing I, Tao Mu, had done in my life was to grasp onto my family with two hands.”

You c an fi nd t he la te st cha pte rs at ( th e ir on tr ee bl oo ms. c o m )

“I hope that every student here can be like me and meet many good people who show kindness towards you and are willing to help you at critical moments. I also hope that all students can grasp every opportunity of kindness.”

“I think that if I, Tao Mu, can manage to be considered a successful person in everyone’s eyes, then this is my success. I also wish all the graduates a great future with brilliant prospects.”

After The Vicious Cannon Fodder Was Reborn CH 295 Extra 2: Graduation Performance (2)

Tao Mu’s graduation performance had been prepared for a year in advance. During this period, including his three roommates and more than 20 other students in the same class, they all settled down to rehearse. Other than the already signed jobs and endorsements, no one accepted any other work. In addition to daily rehearsals, the large group of people would also go visit the stage theaters under the introduction of Beijing Film’s teachers to learn and rehearse with the older generation of artists. Students who perform well would have the opportunity to perform on stage in place of their seniors, and experience the authentic atmosphere of a play performed on the best stage. After a year of precipitation, everyone’s acting skills have improved by leaps and bounds.

You c an fi nd t he la te st cha pte rs at ( th e ir on tr ee bl oo ms. c o m )

At the same time, as the most watched actor and producer in China, with more and more classic works produced by Tao Mu Film and Television Company, more and more young actors and popular stars were being shot to stardom. The many contracted artists under the company were also more and more valued by the industry. So this graduation show naturally attracted the attention of many industry insiders. Many behind-the-scenes bigwigs and management companies communicated with the Beijing Film Academy in advance and got invitations to the graduation performance. In addition, many A- and B-list stars also used the name of senior brothers and sisters to try their best to win the status of invited guests or performers, and returned to their alma mater to participate in the graduation performance.

So much so that on the day of the performance report, almost all the people sitting in the audience were the top figures in the circle. Many students had never seen such a big scene, and they trembled a little on the spot.

“Damn, I actually saw such and such film and television and such and such talent agency bosses, they actually came to watch the performance in person!” The class monitor who had already put on makeup ran back from the entrance of the backstage, a little incoherent from excitement.

“The directors of Yan Theater and Beijing Theater and the teachers who taught us have also come here in person. They are all sitting below! There are also many A-list superstars, my god! It feels like half of the entertainment circle is here!”

“How fresh!” Wen Bao, who was still sitting in front of the dressing table, rolled his eyes: “These words are almost the same as ‘you personally came out to go to the bathroom yourself’.”

The students who were a little nervous at first laughed out loud, and the class monitor thought about the scene Wen Bao described of a group of bosses squatting in toilet stalls together, and then laughed himself silly. In the pleasant atmosphere, someone suddenly sneered twice, and said to himself: “Actually, there is nothing to be nervous about. Those big bosses are all here to see Tao Mu. We are just the background board. The master himself is not nervous, so why are we so nervous!”

The graduation performance was a graded performance performed by each class as a unit. So only the students from Class 1 could perform with Tao Mu. The other two classes could only find scripts and rehearsal schedules and rehearsal venues by themselves. Some students didn’t care about the graduation performance, and they didn’t forget to take endorsement jobs during the rehearsal, packing their schedules to the brim. Tao Mu also saw this kind of thing, but he couldn’t say anything. After all, there were so many students in the school, not all of them were signed by Tao Mu Film and Television Company. For those students who signed contracts with other companies, their itinerary would naturally be restricted by the company. Tao Mu was not in the position, so of course he couldn’t control that much. He could only do his best to take care of most of the students who were willing to stay in school and follow the rehearsal honestly. Do everything possible to help everyone win the opportunity to perform on the theater stage. And in the eyes of those students who don’t follow the trend, these actions were undoubtedly Tao Mu ostracizing them.

Du Ming knew this best. When he first entered school and Tao Mu hadn’t created, Du Ming and several other students in the dormitory went to visit Tao Mu and his roommates, and felt that Tao Mu was very prejudiced against him. So much so that when reporters came interviewing, Du Ming couldn’t hold back, and said a lot of things to slander Tao Mu. When Tao Mu signed a large number of Beijing Film students, Du Ming was afraid that Tao Mu would make it difficult for him, so he didn’t dare to sign with Tao Mu’s company, and he didn’t even dare to sign with Tao Mu’s good friends Longteng Entertainment and Summer Star Entertainment. Instead, he signed with another established film and television company in the circle. Speaking of which, that film and television company really valued Du Ming and gave Du Ming a lot of resources.

However, compared with Tao Mu Film and Television Company, which could produce and sell itself and produce high-quality works every time, even the established film and television companies in the circle seem to be a bit declining in comparison. What’s more, the old film and television company that Du Ming signed was a big company, and Du Ming was not the only artist with development potential under their banner. Not to mention the large number of film kings, film queens, TV kings and TV queens, as well as A- and B-list superstars who represent the company’s face. Du Ming’s looks were good and his acting skills were good, but he still couldn’t compare with these long-established veteran actors and celebrities. So it was conceivable that the best resource in the company was not given to him.

So much so that even though Du Ming tried his best for two years, his popularity was only tepid in the circle. Compared with Du Kang and Wen Bao who debuted at the same time, the difference was too great.

From then on, Du Ming felt that he was pushed out by Tao Mu more and more. His mindset also became more and more unbalanced, and always felt that if he had also been able to sign with Tao Mu Film and Television Company, his current development would definitely be no worse than Du Kang and Wen Bao. The more he thought about it, the more uncomfortable he felt, and the more uncomfortable he was, the more he couldn’t help thinking like this. So much so that recently, he had become a bit overly sarcastic, and couldn’t maintain the generous and hearty image he set for himself back then.

When the others in the background heard Du Ming’s resentful and self-pitying complaints, they couldn’t help but exchange looks. The atmosphere became a little weird for a while. Sitting in front of the dressing table while waiting to get on stage, Tao Mu, who was chatting with Li Xiaoheng, smiled and said, “Du Ming is right, you guys don’t need to be so nervous. In fact, think about it from another angle, the graduation performance doesn’t mean anything, it’s just an answer to our four years of college life. We worked hard to rehearse and make this performance more perfect, in order to draw a successful conclusion to our college life. But even if there are some mistakes, it’s okay, after all, most of you have already signed a contract. Whether you signed with my company or other companies, you will have more opportunities to interpret different roles in the future. No matter what role you get, all we can do is to do our best to play it well. As for what kind of reaction your work would get after the release, that is the audience’s business. We can’t control it.”

Hearing Tao Mu’s words, most of the students began chatting and laughing again. After laughing, they were all busy with makeup or reciting lines over and over again, and not many people paid attention to Du Ming who kept complaining.

Du Ming’s face changed again and again. Looking at Tao Mu who lowered his head to fiddle with his phone again, he didn’t dare to say anything in the end.

In the huge backstage, everyone got busy step by step. Du Ming stood where he was, watching the students coming and going, feeling as if he had been forgotten by everyone.

Du Ming suddenly thought of the many people who had opposed Tao Mu over these many years. Whether it was Shen Yu, who was like an unkillable cockroach at the beginning, or Sheng’an Group, which had a big business and strong capital, as well as including the later Shen Group, they have either disappeared without a trace, or their assets have shrunk and they could no longer make any waves. It seemed that Tao Mu had a kind of magical power, and anyone who opposed him and hated him would end up with nothing good.

Thinking of this, Du Ming suddenly felt a chill down his spine. He couldn’t help but distance himself farther away from where Tao Mu was sitting.

The backstage was busy and chaotic, and Tao Mu too lazy to pay attention to what was going on in the mind of an outsider. The order of the graduation performance was determined by the class number, and Tao Mu’s class would be going on stage first.

After a year of rehearsals, the acting skills of all the members were online. Although the script elements were nothing new, the pace of the plot was pleasing enough. So much so that after a performance, Tao Mu and the group of classmates’ performance naturally won a lot of applause. All the guests who attended the graduation performance also presented flowers and flower baskets one after the other, filling the entire backstage.

As Tao Mu’s family members, Li Xiaoheng and the Li family members, as well as Liu Yao, Meng Qi, and old Mr. Song also sent flowers and gifts——Li Xiaoheng sent flowers, while old Mr. Song simply made a plate of fresh fruit cakes and brought them over. As soon as the delicious Chinese cakes entered the backstage, it was snapped up by everyone. The students who tried their best to perform a good play were hungry, and old Mr. Song’s desserts were just enough to fill their stomachs.

Wen Juxiang’s young master, who was gobbling along with everyone, said by the way: “When the graduation performance is over, I’ll treat everyone to eat mutton hotpot.”

Du Kang chuckled, and suddenly said: “You are quite ceremonial, with a start and an end.”

Everyone was taken aback when they heard the words, and suddenly thought of four years ago, the first time everyone had a meal together when they first entered the school, and it was mutton hotpot at Wen Juxiang. Now four years have passed, and they were about to graduate, meeting up once again for a meal at Wen Juxiang to close a chapter of their lives. Four years have passed by in a hurry, but everyone’s mood was almost the same. Whether it was the joy of just stepping into the school, or the joy of just stepping into the society, everyone was full of confidence and felt that they had a bright future ahead. They would definitely strive to create their own world in the highly competitive entertainment industry.

Thinking of this, all the students couldn’t help looking at Tao Mu, who was surrounded by his family and friends, because all these vigorous and hopeful expectations were brought to them by Tao Mu, who was constantly creating miracles.

Tao Mu’s graduation performance was a complete success. That night, relevant news climbed the hot search lists of major social networking sites. Related news that Tao Mu Film and Television Company was preparing to launch the movie version of “Reincarnation” also spread. The actors in the film version were the same as the actors in the graduation show, and they could be regarded as a graduation gift from Tao Mu to everyone.

After many years, the impression that “Tao Mu’s productions must be high-quality goods” had long spread among audiences and movie fans. Now that Tao Mu Film and Television Company announced that it would release the movie “Reincarnation”, fans of Tao Mu and the other actors as well as pure movie fans became excited, and they became the tap water, discussing and recommending endlessly on and other entertainment forums. The massive heat and the reports of various news media immediately attracted the attention of most audiences.

The members of the Shen family, Zhuo Yan, Yao Wenxiao and others who were far away in Shanghai had also heard of it.

“What an ungrateful white-eyed wolf!” A new version of the Apple phone was slammed on the sofa, and Shen Yan said bitterly: “No matter what, this little bastard was given life by his parents. Even if we did something to be sorry for him back then, blood will always be thicker than water. Now that the Shen family is in trouble, he actually avoids us like the plague so far away. He even had the Li family threaten us not to pester him. Mom and Dad, you really gave birth to him in vain.”

Hearing what Shen Yan said, Shen Shiyuan let out a long sigh, and Mrs. Shen began to cry silently again.

Shen Yan looked indignantly at Shen Chen who was sitting at the dining table and was still reading the news: “Brother——”

“Stop whining!” Shen Chen just ignored her. In contrast, it was Shen Shiyuan who frowned and interrupted Shen Yan: “You are actually not embarrassed to say such a thing. If it weren’t for the fact that you two, mother and daughter, did too much at the beginning, breaking his heart time and time again. The relationship between Xiao Er and us wouldn’t be so stiff. That it can’t even be saved even if we wanted to.”

“But——” Shen Yan wanted to refute, feeling unconvinced. However, she was interrupted again by the impatient Shen Chen.

“Enough!” Shen Chen put down the tablet and rubbed his brows wearily: “If you have time to complain, why don’t you think about what you should do. Don’t think about provoking Tao Mu, you can’t win against him. No matter what you do, it will be your own loss.”

Shen Yan snorted unconvinced. However, thinking of Tao Mu’s indifference and disgust towards her back then, she really didn’t dare to appear in front of Tao Mu. She could only complain a few words at home.

Shen Chen didn’t pay any attention to Shen Yan anymore. Probably because the halo had been tilting towards Tao Mu in the past two years, all those who have evil thoughts towards Tao Mu would always become more and more superficial and one-sided and unlucky. So Shen Chen was not worried that the disgruntled Shen Yan would really do something. She didn’t have the guts. Of course, the most important point was that Shen Chen didn’t have the time and energy to take care of Shen Yan’s emotions.

The past two years have not been easy for the Shen family. With the continuous recovery of memories, neither Shen Chen nor Zhuo Yan could completely be assured of each other. In fact, with the incident having reached the current level, those blood feuds that have lasted for several lifetimes were no longer important. What was stuck between the two parties was simply distrust of each other.

Just like Shen Chen never believed that Zhuo Yan would let the Shen family go, Zhuo Yan also couldn’t believe that Shen Chen would get along with him peacefully. Therefore, the two parties who both possessed memories walked into a dead end of “enemies meeting on a narrow road”. Zhuo Yan would try his best to disrupt all of Shen Chen’s plans, and Shen Chen would try his best to grab hold of Zhuo Yan’s weaknesses. The specific manifestation was that in the past two years since recovering the memories, neither of the two parties could develop their careers with peace of mind, and all their energy was spent busy destroying the other party.

The chess game had been repeated countless times. Both chess players knew all the context and the behavior of the other. So the final result was that no one could get the upper hand. A long stalemate would naturally consume the original capital owned by the Shen family and Zhuo Yan. As a result, the two people who clearly had many precious memories had no way to use them effectively, and could only stalemate in constantly destroying each other’s plans.

The Yao family were also dragged into this vicious circle. After all the truth came to light, Yao Wenxiao was the only one in the Yao family who recovered the memories. However, the Yao family and Zhuo Yan joined hands to trap the Shen family, and in the end the Yao family suffered the consequences. And of course, Shen Chen’s handwriting was indispensable in this——there was no way around it. After all, if Shen Chen wanted to deal with Zhuo Yan, he had to start with all the illegal actions Zhuo Yan had made to seize the Shen Group. And in order to protect himself, Zhuo Yan had to put those charges on the Yao family who were accomplices. The final result was that an elder of the Yao family who was in charge of handling the matter went to jail. Of course the Yao family couldn’t bear such a big loss. Coupled with the fact that Yao Wenxiao had recovered his memories, of course new and old grudges must be avenged…..

Tao Mu, who was at peace with himself, finally let go of everything, but the Shen family, Yao family, and Zhuo Yan who couldn’t do the same, even if they recovered all their memories, they were still struggling in the vicious circle of hatred. Even though they clearly possessed knowledge on many business opportunities from the memories, there was no way to develop with peace of mind. No matter whether it was Shen Chen or Zhuo Yan, whenever they wanted to invest in good stocks, they would always be sabotaged by the other party and could only watch the great opportunities go to waste. Even though they clearly had a bright future and career, they could only keep struggling in the quagmire——or more accurately put, if they even showed signs of struggling out of the quagmire, they would be decisively pulled back down by their opponent, such that no one could break free.

You c an fi nd t he la te st cha pte rs at ( th e ir on tr ee bl oo ms. c o m )

Even if the two sides sought a short-term reconciliation in order to strive for stable development, in the end there was no way to really trust each other. All the bad qualities from the depths of human nature kept them vigilant, and they would rather maintain the status quo than let the other party really develop. In order to avoid the threat of raising a tiger only to bite them in the throat.

But these bad things were no longer part of Tao Mu’s consideration. The day after the graduation performance was the official graduation ceremony. In the morning, he took his graduation photo and received his graduation certificate. In the afternoon of that day, Tao Mu went to the Civil Affairs Bureau together at the urging of Li Xiaoheng. The wish of “getting married on the day of graduation” that the two spoke of back then was completely realized.

After The Vicious Cannon Fodder Was Reborn CH 294 Extra 1: Graduation Performance (1)

Preparations for Tao Mu’s graduation performance began in the second semester of his junior year. Because most of the 2008 Beijing Film students signed with Tao Mu’s film and television company, the schedule of the graduation performance was easily coordinated. CEO Tao waved his hand, and all the students in the same year followed suit in practice in the first rehearsal room of the school.

The script of the graduation performance was called “Reincarnation”, which was written by Tao Mu himself. It was about a CEO who had always been obsessed with making money to the extent he could not extricate himself. But when he woke up one morning, he suddenly found himself stuck on one day forever.

You c an fi nd t he la te st cha pte rs at ( th e ir on tr ee bl oo ms. c o m )

The domineering CEO was a man who was very self-disciplined and so powerful that he was very cold and indifferent. He lived step by step, like a robot with all the programs set up every day. Get up at five o’clock in the morning, go for a run, browse relevant news at home and abroad, always have coffee and sandwiches for breakfast, then go to work at the company on time at nine o’clock in the morning, or fly around the world on business trips according to the itinerary.

On the day when the story began, according to the domineering CEO’s itinerary, he was going to attend a very important contract signing event. However, that morning, he had received a call from his mother, tactfully expressing that she missed him, hoping that the domineering CEO could take time to go home and visit them, his parents.

The domineering CEO’s response was to transfer 100,000 yuan to his parents’ account, and order his assistant to buy good health care products to send home. He even thoughtfully ordered a seven-day tour with a group for his parents to help them dispel loneliness, and then expressed that he really didn’t have any time.

Later, he also received a call from his girlfriend informing him that she wanted to break up. So the domineering CEO proposed to his girlfriend on the phone. His sincere attitude originally touched his girlfriend’s heart but soon afterwards, in order to make it on time to the important contract signing, he perfunctorily brushed her off and once again angered his girlfriend. After some hysterical accusations and criticisms, the girlfriend broke up with him angrily and hung up the phone.

Afterwards, the domineering CEO who was not in a good mood encountered an absent-minded employee who was late for work, almost causing the signing ceremony to fail. The domineering CEO managed with difficulty to save the mishap and fired the employee according to the employee guidelines, only to have the employee attack him out of revenge…..

All in all, this day was very messy and bad. However, when the domineering CEO finally came home from work, after finishing all the work and getting ready to go to bed, the next day when he opened his eyes again it was to return to this day again.

During the first reincarnation, even though the domineering CEO realized that something was wrong, he had no interest in investigating the cause. He still lived his life step by step. However, with repeated reincarnations, even the domineering CEO who was obsessed with work couldn’t help but disperse his energy on other things. Anyway, even if the work was finished, it would start again the next day. No matter how good the results of his efforts today, when the sun rose the next day, it would still disappear.

Amid such thoughts, the domineering CEO finally began to change. He noticed that the fired employee was late because the employee was involved in a car accident on the way to work while dropping off his daughter to school. In order to ensure the smooth progress of the signing ceremony, the employee had to send the daughter off on the ambulance alone, and then call his divorced ex-wife. Amidst the unbelievable questioning and scolding of his ex-wife, the employee entrusted the injured daughter to his ex-wife, and brought the injured daughter to the ex-wife himself before rushing to the signing site. Even so, he was late. And was questioned and dismissed by the domineering CEO. And the reason why the employee got divorced in the first place was because he was too busy at work to take care of his family…..

The experiences of the employee made the domineering CEO think deeply. On this day, he did not try his best to save the signing ceremony, but returned home silently. Due to preparing for this contract signing, he also didn’t sleep well for many days. He wanted to go home and rest. Then the next morning, the domineering CEO who returned to this day once again received the call from his parents.

This time, the overbearing CEO willfully rejected all the appointments for the day, went home to accompany his parents, chatted with them, bought groceries and cooked meals with them, ate with them, took a walk with them to digest the food and then watched TV with them. He was surprised to find that the very youthful parents in his memory have gray temples, wrinkled skin, and even their backs were not as tall and straight as before.

That night, the overbearing CEO stayed at his parents’ house. This was also the first time since he had been working for so many years, that he had put down all the work at hand and spent time with his parents wholeheartedly. When he opened his eyes again, the domineering CEO returned to his bedroom once again. And in this reincarnation, he accompanied his girlfriend who decided to break up, and also learned about her helplessness and loneliness…..

In the end, of course, the domineering CEO realized through repeated reincarnations that what he should cherish and care about the most was not his work, but his family and beloved. So he took his girlfriend home to meet his parents and finalized the wedding date. Even though he knew that he would start over again the next day, the domineering CEO still patiently promised everyone a happy future. Of course, the ending was different this time. On the second day, time finally started to continue to flow.

The inspiration for this script came from Tao Mu’s experience of constant reincarnation. However, the main purpose of the story was to tell everyone that if you were blindly immersed in work or one thing and could not extricate yourself, and have no energy to pay attention to the surrounding scenery and people around you, even if time kept moving forward, then for this person, these passages of time were also meaningless. Because he would stay on this day forever.

Just like Tao Mu in the past, he was blindly immersed in the emotion of revenge and being recognized by the Shen family and couldn’t extricate himself, so no matter how many times he reincarnated, he would always stay in one place. Time seemed to flow, but it was actually static. Because the elapsed time had no meaning to him.

While Tao Mu was pondering the script, Li Xiaoheng was nestled beside him to browse the news of the day, and process a lot of company documents that needed his approval.

The two of them nestled on the same sofa. The afternoon sun poured through the floor-to-ceiling windows, and the shadows cast by the dark green trees flickered in the breeze, making the living room extraordinarily bright and warm.

Tao Mu tapped on the keyboard for a while, then raised his head and said to Li Xiaoheng: “…..Actually, the prototype of the hero is you.” To be precise, it was the Li Xiaoheng who had never met Tao Mu. In every life that passed by, he was addicted to work and couldn’t extricate himself, and remained alone until dying of old age.

Li Xiaoheng moved his eyes away from the stock market listing, looked down at Tao Mu who was stretching lazily in his arms, and teased in a warm voice: “Then is the prototype of the heroine you?”

Tao Mu’s lips twitched, feeling that there was no way to chat any longer.

“You conversation terminator!” Tao Mu secretly slandered, and asked Li Xiaoheng unwillingly, “Don’t you think this is very romantic?”

He wrote his own script for the graduation performance, and the prototype of the hero was actually his lover or something…..

Li Xiaoheng laughed when he heard the words, and immediately realized Tao Mu’s unspoken expectation. Immediately, he said: “Of course it’s very romantic. In fact, I’m also looking forward to seeing this graduation performance, as well as you acting as me. Of course, I am even more looking forward to the day when you receive your diploma.”

When Li Xiaoheng said this, he paused slightly, stretched out his hand to hook Tao Mu’s little finger, and emphasized gently: “We have agreed. On the day of graduation, you will receive your graduation certificate in the morning and your marriage certificate in the afternoon.”

Tao Mu also hooked Li Xiaoheng’s little finger back with a little force, pulled him down, and kissed him lightly, “En, it was agreed a long time ago.”

Li Xiaoheng chuckled and kissed Tao Mu, then began to attack: “But having said that, in the heart of our family’s CEO Tao, I turned out to be such a work-obsessed, cold and indifferent person who is like a robot, and even my parents and lovers don’t want to pay attention to me.”

Tao Mu: “…..” No, that’s not the case. I don’t, I’m not, I don’t think this.

“You said it yourself, this male protagonist is based on me.” Li Xiaoheng observed Tao Mu’s expression, and continued to sigh aggrievedly: “I’m so sad. So in our baby’s heart, I am an old man without a sense of romance.”

Tao Mu could only feel a string snap in his head. He didn’t even have time to pursue the matter of Li Xiaoheng calling him “baby”, quickly explaining: “I don’t. I just…..fine, I’m wrong.”

Seeing Li Xiaoheng’s increasingly aggrieved expression, Tao Mu had no choice but to obediently admit his mistake.

“Then what kind of punishment should Mr. Tao receive for this mistake?” Li Xiaoheng raised his eyebrows, pretending to be serious and asked: “Or, no matter what punishment I give, our Mr. Tao will willingly accept the punishment? “

Noticing Li Xiaoheng’s sudden “enthusiasm”, Tao Mu, who was forced to admit his mistake, only felt weak in his kidneys, and asked without confidence: “Then how do you want to punish me?”

Li Xiaoheng raised his eyebrows again, and in an especially domineering CEO manner, he hugged their family’s CEO Tao, and said meaningfully: “Of course it is the punishment of love!”

Tao Mu: “…..”

So from this afternoon until the next morning, Mr. Tao, who wanted to work on the script, was unable to complete the tasks listed on his to-do list. It was not until the noon of the next day, Tao Mu, who was woken up by the bright sun, got up from the bed with a hand rubbing his waist and a bitter face. Mr. Li, who had been the punisher all night, was squatting in the bathroom and preparing bath water for his punished. Seeing Tao Mu walking in with one hand supporting the wall and one hand protecting his waist, Mr. Punisher greeted him very graciously, and helped the dear punished take a bath.

Mr. Tao, who failed to complete the work again, suddenly thought that the hero of this “Reincarnation” could also be himself. Every day, he repeated the reincarnation cycle of wanting to work hard but still being unable to complete the work, and even have to accept Mr. Punisher’s “punishment of love” under various excuses.

It was just that towards this time’s reincarnation cycle, Tao Mu endured it gladly.

After The Vicious Cannon Fodder Was Reborn CH 293 Finale

In March, the weather began to turn warm but still with  lingering winter chill. Even though the temperature had risen to more than 10 degrees, the difference between it and body temperature was still very large because of the icy cold wind.

Tao Mu wore a well-tailored and conventional black suit, and walked on the red carpet side by side with Li Xiaoheng. This was also Tao Mu’s first public appearance after his engagement to Li Xiaoheng.

You c an fi nd t he la te st cha pte rs at ( th e ir on tr ee bl oo ms. c o m )

When the media reporters and fans on both sides saw this scene, they screamed excitedly. Amidst the successive shutter sounds and bursts of dazzling white flashes, Tao Mu and Li Xiaoheng walked to the photo interview area on the red carpet.

A large wave of reporters flocked over, taking photos and asking questions excitedly.

“Mr. Tao, this time “Soldier Elite” has received eleven nominations at the Lingxiao Awards, how many are you confident of getting?”

“”Soldier Elite: Unsheathed Knife” has raked in 2 billion dollars worldwide, and jumped to second place in the global box office rankings. Do you have anything to say?”

“Many movie fans are looking forward to the sequel of “Soldier Elite”. May I ask when the sequel will start filming? Will it still be the original cast?”

“After you got engaged to CEO Li, you took a three-month leave to travel around the world. In addition to being busy with the promotion of the big production movie “Soldier Elite: Unsheathed Knife”, you haven’t accepted any new scripts or other entertainment related jobs. It is rumored that you are retiring from acting, is this true?”

Various questions came one after another, and Tao Mu picked out a few interesting questions to answer.

“Being nominated is already an affirmation of us, so I don’t insist on awards.”

“I am very satisfied with the movie “Soldier Elite: Unsheathed Knife”. I have no plans to make a sequel in a short time.”

“I’m not retiring. It’s just that I haven’t received any interesting scripts recently. I love acting, and I will spend more time and energy on polishing my works in the future. I will probably shoot a movie or TV series each year. I will try to use wonderful performances to return everyone’s love.”

Estimating that the time was almost up, Tao Mu and Li Xiaoheng waved at the camera and fans, regardless of the reporters’ reluctance, and turned to enter the awards hall.

The other members of the crew of “Soldier Elite” have almost all arrived. Celebrities who have a good relationship with Tao Mu, directors and behind-the-scenes producers also greeted him one after another. The young newcomers who were not qualified to approach stood in twos and threes on the periphery, looking at Tao Mu who was surrounded by people in the center like stars surrounding the moon, and felt envious.

“This is the real winner in life. Not only is he handsome and has good acting skills, he also has the capital to support people, and the movies and TV shows he produces are also very profitable. It would be great if I could sign with Tao Mu’s film and television company.”

There was not a lack of people who thought this way. So much so that before the awards ceremony even started, the people around Tao Mu never stopped appearing. It wasn’t until the staff of the TV station came over to remind that the awards ceremony was about to begin that Tao Mu had the opportunity to take Li Xiaoheng back to his seat and sit down.

After sitting down, Tao Mu immediately turned his head and whispered to Li Xiaoheng: “Sorry about ignoring you.”

“It’s okay.” Li Xiaoheng smiled and shook his head. He was happy to admire Tao Mu’s shining appearance in the crowd.

“The two of you are too much. During the honeymoon, you show off your affection on live broadcast every day, and now you have to attend the awards ceremony as a couple. Can’t you give us single dogs a way out?”

Next to Tao Mu was Guo Yaning. Seeing that the two have been inseparable from the moment they came in, and now they were even secretly whispering together after sitting down, she couldn’t help but roll her eyes.

Tao Mu chuckled, and explained very seriously: “We aren’t showing off, this is our daily interaction.”

After hearing this, Guo Yaning rolled her eyes even more strongly.

Fortunately, the awards ceremony soon officially began. Guo Yaning didn’t have to tremble at the cold and lonely feeling of having dog food slapped on her face.

This year’s Lingxiao Awards Ceremony was still broadcast live by the national station. At 7:30 in the evening, the news broadcast had just ended, and the audience directly locked on the national channel, preparing fruit and snacks, and waiting patiently for the start of the awards ceremony.

Similar to the process in previous years, the Lingxiao Awards began with some insignificant small awards. For example, the Best Newcomer Award, which was launched a few years ago to encourage young actors to study their acting skills steadily, as well as other awards for the best soundtrack, costumes and props.

Gu Yuzhang, who gave a wonderful performance in “Soldier Elite” despite it being his first TV drama, was lucky enough to win the Best Newcomer Award. It once again confirmed Tao Mu’s ability to train newcomers, and at the same time, it also gave this TV series, which received eleven nominations in the Lingxiao Awards, a good start.

Gu Yuzhang was particularly excited when he delivered his acceptance speech. Because the film version of “Soldier Elite” was a project initiated by Beijing Film. Even if his role in the movie was also very popular with the audience, and he was signed to Tao Mu’s company, he still didn’t have a part in the filming of the movie.

It was just a supporting role in a movie, and being signed to Tao Mu’s film and television company and valued by Tao Mu, Gu Yuzhang didn’t worry about filming resources at all, so he didn’t value it too much. However, the movie “Soldier Elite” was really too impressive. As a mainstream movie, it not only had a good reputation, but the global box office had broken the record of 2 billion dollars. No matter how carefree Gu Yuzhang was now, it was inevitable that he would be a little bit conflicted.

After all, not everyone had the opportunity to participate in a big movie with a global box office of more than 2 billion dollars. Even Tao Mu himself couldn’t guarantee that he could achieve such a good result when he made movies in the future. However, things were already like this, and the company couldn’t do anything about it. So helping Gu Yuzhang to win the Best Newcomer Award this time was also a consolation. Of course, in addition to this, the company also promised to tailor-make a movie for Gu Yuzhang.

Such a career line with ups and downs left Gu Yuzhang full of emotions. Although he missed the 2 billion dollar box office movie, fortunately, the company still valued him. When Gu Yuzhang delivered his acceptance speech, he thanked Tao Mu, his benefactor and boss, repeatedly. Promising he would work hard and live up to the expectations of his boss.

During the speech, the camera turned to Tao Mu frequently. Tao Mu also calmly waved and smiled at the camera. Guo Yaning, who was sitting next to Tao Mu, was once again envious and jealous. She didn’t expect that the newcomer Tao Mu signed to be so considerate, unlike the few starlets signed by her studio, who were not very talented, but were so full of drama.

“This won’t do! When I present the award to you later, I have to make things difficult for you. Otherwise, it will be difficult to vent my frustration.” Guo Yaning expressed fiercely.

——That’s right, Guo Yaning, who had moved to the big screen, had long since stopped making TV dramas. Participating in the award ceremony of the Lingxiao Award this time was also due to being invited by the organizer to be the award presenter. And it was to award one of the most valuable awards, the Best Actor Award.

As an award presenter, Guo Yaning naturally got wind of who won in advance. This was also one of the unspoken rules of domestic award ceremonies. The management team of the finalists would be notified of the results in advance to make sure nothing goes wrong. So in many cases, the audience only needed to see which nominee did not come to the awards ceremony, and they could probably predict who would win the award. But this kind of thing, only the top-tier big names dared to do it. If a young actor who had just entered the industry dared to pull this stunt, they would definitely offend the organizer.

However, this year’s Best Actor was a bit of an exception. Because “Soldier Elite” was a mainstream military promotion drama in which Tao Mu co-produced with the military, and was very in line with the preferences and tastes of the jury of the Lingxiao Awards. In addition, the ratings of this TV series have broken historical records, and had caused a phenomenon-level performance in the whole society to join the army. Of course, the most important factor was that the movie version of “Soldier Elite” had shockingly raked in 2 billion dollars worldwide. Almost everyone had confirmed with certainty that the best actor for this year’s Lingxiao Award must be Tao Mu. But the other four nominees who were shortlisted together with Tao Mu did not find excuses to not attend, but instead all came over.

The main reason for this was that in addition to being an actor with good acting skills, Tao Mu was also a capable producer and a big capital investor. Many people want to take this opportunity to get to know Tao Mu, so that when Tao Mu prepared to film other works in the future, he could think of them at the first opportunity.

For a big production movie with 2 billion dollar box office sales on the global scale, even a supporting role was enough to add a touch of brilliance to their qualifications. What’s more, Tao Mu was only 21 years old this year, and his future was long and bright.

It was also for this reason that when the Lingxiao Award for Best Actor was announced, the atmosphere at the awards ceremony was for once very cheerful, the kind that was full of joyful celebration. Whether it was Tao Mu who won the award, the other four nominees who were also shortlisted, or other guests at the award ceremony, they were all sincerely happy for Tao Mu. The entire award presentation scene instantly became a sea of joy, and the continuous applause continued until Tao Mu stepped onto the stage.

The guests in charge of awarding the Best Actor Award were Guo Yaning and the chairman of the jury for the Lingxiao Award. As we all know, the Lingxiao Award had always been called a “government award”, and Tao Mu was the “son” of SARFT. Therefore, when the chairman of the judging committee of the Lingxiao Award presented the trophy to Tao Mu, he did not forget to pat Tao Mu on the shoulder, and praised with pride: “Not bad, kid, you are worth looking forward to.”

A TV series “Soldier Elite” broke the domestic ratings record of the same subject at the same time and set off an upsurge of joining the army across the country. A movie version of “Soldier Elite” raked in another 2 billion dollars worldwide, and spread the positive image of Chinese special forces to the world. These two works of Tao Mu not only brought glory to the Chinese film industry, but also meant that the Chinese film industry, which had always been accumulating strength and looking for its own path, had finally sent its own voice to the world. This was a kind of cultural export, and it also allowed the domestic entertainment industry to see the hope of revitalizing commercial films in mainland China. They believe that in the next few years, the mainstream of film and television dramas full of Chinese elements and positive energy would no longer be a dry pool of water, and more filmmakers would follow in the footsteps of Tao Mu and slowly explore the wider possibilities in Chinese movies..

And all these changes were brought about by Tao Mu.

As the chairman of the jury said, although Tao Mu was still young and his acting career had just started, Tao Mu’s future had unlimited possibilities. He deserved everyone’s expectations.

“Thank you Chairman and Sister Ya Ning. Thank you to the organizer for awarding me this award. Thank you for your recognition, encouragement and expectations.” Tao Mu raised the trophy and kissed it: “This is the award I got in my four years in the industry. But I firmly believe that this is just the beginning. The future is still long, I will work hard with the people who love me and the people I love, and dedicate more and more exciting works to everyone.”

When Tao Mu said this, he looked at Li Xiaoheng who was sitting under the stage, and his eyes became more gentle and tender: “This trophy has an extraordinary meaning to me. This is not only everyone’s recognition of my acting skills, but also a new beginning of my career and life. I want to give this trophy to my most important person. Without him, I would not be where I am today. Without him, I don’t think I would have the future I could look forward to. So, what I want to say is, Li Xiaoheng, you deserve this trophy.”

As Tao Mu sooke, he raised the trophy and toasted Li Xiaoheng: “We used to cooperate tacitly and cooperated seamlessly. I hope that every day in the future, we can also be of one mind and cross the river in the same boat.”

You c an fi nd t he la te st cha pte rs at ( th e ir on tr ee bl oo ms. c o m )

As soon as these words fell, the guests at the awards ceremony had already stood up excitedly. There were screams, whistles and applause one after another. Even Guo Yaning and the chairman of the jury on the stage looked over with smiles on their faces. Under the scorching gazes of everyone, including all the audience in front of the TV, Tao Mu walked up to Li Xiaoheng holding the trophy, and said with a warm smile, “Thank you, Mr. Li. The other half on the military medal must be your name.”

“I’m very honored.” Li Xiaoheng accepted the trophy with a smile, leaned forward to hug Tao Mu, and made a serious promise: “I will continue to be by your side every day in the future. Together we will live life together through thick and thin.”
