Chapter 79 – Another Marking
After saying this, Qiu Jin let go of Wen Mojia and stood in front fo the mirror to straighten out his clothes.
Why would he mention Tongguang all of a sudden? Who was Tongguang?
After a long silence, Wen Mojia finally reacted.
Ji Tongguang was the male protagonist in the drama “The Rise and Fall of the World.” The lines just now came from a scene in the book where Ji He and the male protagonist were pitted against each other.
After realizing this, Wen Mojia froze in place. In his mind, he replayed Qiu Jin’s performance again.
When most people played the bad guy, they would either be sneering incessantly with a malicious face, or fuming with rage between gritted teeth while menacing someone. That was also how Wen Mojia had acted out the role during the audition, and he was even afraid that he wasn’t being ferocious enough.

But Qiu Jin did it the other way around. That’s right, Ji He was sent to another country as a hostage prince since he was a child, and the brutal court life taught him to restrain his sharpness and temper. His evilness was not as exposed as ordinary people. Instead, he would just use his usual flat expression to say what he thought was right.
Interpreting horror with tender expressions, it was even more hair-raising than shouting and screaming.
Wen Mojia leaned against the wall in frustration. He had no choice but to accept reality. In terms of acting skills, perhaps, he was indeed inferior to Qiu Jin.
At this moment, there was a sudden “click” sound from within the bathroom. The door to one of the bathroom stalls opened. A long leg wrapped in suit pants stepped out.
The man’s suit was very upright. His appearance was genial. His deep black eyes zoomed in on his face.
Qiu Jin’s body froze instantly.
Why was Jiang Ming here?
Qiu Jin took a step back subconsciously, and he didn’t know if it was a misconception, but when he met the other man’s gaze, Qiu Jin felt his glands swell up.
As if he did not expect such a big reaction, the man showed a benevolent smile, and narrowed his peach blossom eyes: “Did I scare you?”
“N, no, I’m just a little surprised.” Qiu Jin braced himself and greeted the other man, “Greetings, Jiang-laoshi.”
[T/N: 老师 laoshi means “teacher,” but it doesn’t necessarily mean the person being addressed is a teacher. It’s often used as an honorific in different professions as a sign of respect.]
“Just call me Jiang Ming.” Jiang Ming had a good temper and gave him a gentle smile, “I’m sorry, I didn’t mean to eavesdrop.”
Qiu Jin was very embarrassed: “We didn’t choose a good place…”
“But it allowed me to see a good show.”
Qiu Jin: “…”
“I mean it literally,” Jiang Ming explained, “If I’m not mistaken, you said the lines in the TV series just now, right? It was wonderful. If I were the director, I would choose you, too.”
Apart from thanking him for the compliment, Qiu Jin didn’t know what to say.
They had already walked out into the garden while exchanging words. In June, Beijing has entered midsummer. There was a breeze blowing under the promenade, but it was not very comfortable to stay for too long.

Qiu Jin was about to leave when he heard Jiang Ming ask him, “Do you want to go participate in some activities?”
Jiang Feihong’s birthday is an all-day event. In addition to the banquet at noon, there are also some themed activities in the afternoon, such as movie viewing, various themed tea parties, and some indoor entertainment programs.
After all, it wasn’t easy to gather so many people together, so everyone regarded this event as a social platform.
Qiu Jin shook his head: “There are too many people, I don’t want to go.”
Moreover, he didn’t know if it was because the weather was too hot, but he felt that something was wrong with him. His glands were swollen. After thinking about it carefully, the last temporary mark was a week ago.
He should have Ji Shenxiao bite another mark on him tonight.
Qiu Jin was lost in thought and didn’t pay attention to what was in front of him for a while. When he came back to his senses, he realized that Jiang Ming’s face had already appeared in front of him.
Qiu Jin’s body froze, and he couldn’t help but take a step back: “What did you say?”
“I said, do you want to sit over there?” Jiang Ming showed a slightly lively smile, “After all, we have to act as husband and wife, so we need to cultivate our relationship in advance.”
Qiu Jin: “…”
If Qiu Jin had known that Jiang Ming was Xu Ziyu, he would never have auditioned for the show. If only Yi Congqing hadn’t told the media about it, then he could have found an excuse to quit.
But now, almost the entire entertainment industry knew…
