The Side Character’s Hidden Boss! - Chapter 469
Chapter 469: Train
Mo Li’s movies and dramas hadn’t been released yet. She only had a few commercials but Mo Li was already very famous. She was the object of envy at her school. People envied her because she had 3 good-looking brothers and now she even had the chance to work with many male idols.
At the start, Mo Li was scolded by the whole internet and school; but now the entire school envied her. The situation had completely changed. But it was inconsequential to Mo Li. She only returned to school to discuss some research problems with the old professor.
Mo Li’s life was fulfilling. She did not have many friends but it was already a lot compared to her previous life… Mo Li was satisfied.
There were other students at their school who had signed up with agencies. They played small commercials and small roles. However, there were none who had leading roles like Mo Li. Even the staff was discussing in private if Mo Li had such opportunities because of her talent or her family.
The rumors were everywhere but Mo Li couldn’t care less. It did not affect her study and her work.
Mo Li looked calm on the surface but she was still worried about one thing. She hoped that one day she’d receive a call from Xiao Rui to tell her that the killer of the five elements had been caught. Half a month had pa.s.sed since the last crime. Curiously enough, Xiao Rui also couldn’t find anyone born in the year of Fire among the list of hospital patients. Mo Li knew that the murderer would not strike at random, but that did not mean that she was not worried.
That day, Mo Li just finished school when Nie Li grabbed her to the hospital to have the st.i.tches removed. However, even a good doctor like Lu Xuan couldn’t promise that Mo Li wouldn’t be left with scars.
The result proved that Nie Li’s worry was not unfounded. The wound left behind a huge scar on Mo Li’s back shoulder. It meant that Mo Li couldn’t wear any gowns that showed off her back. Nie Li suggested Mo Li take a scar-removal surgery but Mo Li knew the surgery would take a lot of time.
Mo Li did not mind the scar. She told Nie Li that she knew an internationally-renowned doctor who had come up with a recent scar-removal ointment. After using the ointment for half a month, the scar would disappear. Lu Xuan glanced at Mo Li. Teacher, you really need to come up with a better excuse. We all know you’re talking about yourself!
Lu Xuan was right. Mo Li did have a formula for scar removal. She came up with it before her transmigration. She did it for research. Everyone who used it had only praise for it.
When Mo Li discussed the ointment with Lu Xuan, Nie Li received a call. She turned and looked at Mo Li with a strange smile. “Mo Li, it’s time for you to help promote the two projects you’re in!” Nie Li was in awe of Mo Li’s good luck. Zhan Hai had just invested in a variety program, one of the casts suddenly couldn’t partic.i.p.ate so he called Nie Li to find a stand-in.
Mo Li was at the height of her popularity so this was a win-win situation!
The next afternoon, Mo Li was bundled and escorted to Beijing train station.
She was dressed in military gear. It was the cheapest thing she had worn since her transmigration. The fabric was rough. There were eight people on the train, including herself. Mo Li had a bright red flower pinned on her chest.
There was another female celebrity with them. Mo Li had seen her before but she couldn’t remember her name. The girl’s manager dragged her along as the manager berated, “They will not cut your hair! Can you stop crying and dawdling? Don’t waste this opportunity!”
The female celebrity pursed her lips tightly. Her face was filled with resentment and her movement was resistant.
“Long time no see.” Mo Li heard a familiar voice. It was Fang Ming, who she met during the filming of Adventures on the Sea. Even though they both worked for Huanyu, there were not that many chances for them to meet.
As they planned to catch up, a man with a thick accent shouted, “Move into the train. Don’t block the entrance.”
The next second Fang Ming was shoved forward. He regained his balance with great difficulty and turned his head around. Behind him was a man in his 30s. His muscles were bulging and his skin was tanned. He seemed to be constantly exposed to the sunlight.
Inside the train was a rising star who was part of a male idol group. He sat there and shouted at his manager outside the window. “I told you I’m not going to partic.i.p.ate in this rubbish show! I’m going to leave! Watch me!”
The young man had just stood up when a force tightened on the back of his neck. Then he was shoved back into his seat by force. The back of his head hit the seat and it caused him to see stars.
“Stop grousing! Are you a man or not?! A man shouldn’t shirk from their responsibility!”
