My Wife Is a Superstar Chapter 68

Nan Chen didn’t say a word because he was thinking about Qin Lan’s words. Loving the scent because it was exuded by the person I love?

How is that even possible? He had only smelled that scent from that woman, and she disgusts him! How is it possible that he fell for her? That was utterly ridiculous!

“Bullsh**!” comment Nan Chen whose words stabbed Qin Lan’s pride.

For the first time in his life, Nan Chen found Qin Lan to be unprofessional and a complete fraud.

Qin Lan was so angry that she almost lost control.

She was the best psychologist in Flower City and had been working with the police for years.

Moreover, many high-profile leaders sought after her counsel, and not one of them dared to say that her words were bullsh**.

“No, I’m right,” refuted Qin Lan, “You’re just saying that I’m bullsh** because you don’t want to accept that reality.”

Nan Chen didn’t respond to that because he always thought of himself as better than that.

He stood up and started to leave.

“Trust me, Nan Chen, if you’re troubled by a woman’s scent, then you must have fallen for her!” “I remember you talking about her. If you love her, then go for it! Why torture yourself like that?”

“Does your heart beat faster every time you see her? Do you want to get close to her but couldn’t let your pride down?” “Why are you so stubborn when it comes to social statuses?” “Why not just act normal and try to get close to her like a normal person?”

Refusing to listen to another word Qin Lan had to say, Nan Chen picked up his black jacket from the chair and left.

He found Qin Lan’s words to be utterly ridiculous because he hated that woman.

After leaving the counseling center, Nan Chen drove his car to the district area and sat there numbly.

That night, after his dinner with Dabao and Erbao, he gave the two kids a hug and smelled the tangerine scent from Erbao.

That moment, he confirmed that the scent was the one he hadn’t been able to forget.

On the way home, Erbao mentioned that her mommy was shooting a TV show called the Sound of Thunder 2.

Nan Chen’s mind made the connection quickly! The annoying second female lead actress had the same scent!

He started to realize something, but he needed time to prove it.

He liked the kids, but not that woman because he thought that she was too calculating and seemed to have something big planned.

He wanted to see just what she planned to do.

That day, after confirming that the kids’ father was Nan Xing, he felt sad because it was like he had lost the scent that had been with him all those years.

A scent was a strange thing to lose because they were supposed to dissipate with time, but, to Nan Chen, that scent was something more. It was like a curse that had haunted his memory, and he was about to lose it… Or rather, he was about to lose the right to chase after that scent.

That got him depressed, extremely depressed. He thought that those feelings were ridiculous, and after listening to Qin Lan’s analysis, he found them to be even more ridiculous.

……

Nan Chen made a sudden appearance at the set that afternoon.

He didn’t bring his assistant along, and he didn’t call beforehand either so no one knew how long he had been observing the shooting from behind the camera.

After they finished shooting a scene, everyone took a water break, and that was when someone noticed Nan Chen.

Wang Yan was so surprised that his legs stopped working. What happened? Why did Mr. Chen stop by all of a sudden?

Nan Chen gestured everyone to work as usual, but how was that possible when their boss was sitting right there?

The third female lead actress – Zhao Mingjie – was so nervous that she forgot her lines.

Luo Fei, on the other hand, was so eager to please Nan Chen and get his compliment that she tried too hard to act, and made her terrible acting worse.

The only one who remained unaffected in this scene between the three sisters was Ning Ran.

Be it the position she stood, her facial expression, the tone she used, or even the way her eyes shone, everything she did was perfect.

She was the type of person who lived and breathed drama. She understood and assimilated herself into her character which made her portrayal of her character downright amazing.

Unfortunately, her colleagues were so terrible at their job that they drastically reduced the quality of the scene.

Nan Chen frowned. He wanted to get the writers to change the script once more and remove Zhao Mingjie’s and Luo Fei’s scenes so that their terrible acting won’t affect the show’s quality.

However, that was not possible because the two actresses in question had minimal scenes and further reducing their scenes may mean cutting their characters off, and the main character would be the only one left.

Without those characters, who would the main character play her scene with? Should they hire other actresses to play the roles of the secondary characters? Given the situation, that won’t do either.

The famous actresses, who could attract the public’s attention, were terrible at acting while the unknown ones, who would not draw eyeballs, were great at their job. The dilemma was that without the attention famous actresses would draw, the show would remain unprofitable.

“Mr. Chen, what do you think?” asked Wang Yan politely while bowing slightly.

Nan Chen didn’t speak.

He didn’t bring Jiang Zhe along that day and without Jiang Zhe being his ‘translator’, Nan Chen didn’t want to talk.

“If you’re unhappy with that, Mr. Chen,” said Wang Yan nervously, “I could have them redo the whole thing.”

Nan Chen waved his hand to signal that that was unnecessary.

He understood that Luo Fei’s and Zhao Mingjie’s skills were limited so it wouldn’t help no matter how many times they redo the scene.

After a while, Nan Chen decided to leave.

Almost everyone had their eyes on him as he walked away. The only exception was Ning Ran who didn’t react to Nan Chen’s presence and was sitting at the side, reading the script.

Nan Chen sneaked a peek at Ning Ran and noticed that she was treating him like he was invisible. That got him angry.

What a scheming woman! She’s acting like this doesn’t affect her at all!

Nan Chen never had a chance to get close to Ning Ran or to enjoy that sweet tangerine scent during this trip.

The next morning, Erbao stopped eating her breakfast and stared at the television all of a sudden.

The morning news was saying that the head of the Nanshi Corporation, Nan Chen, had fallen ill and that the share prices of companies listed under the Nanshi Corporation had fallen drastically. According to experts, this incident had cost the Nanshi Corporation billions.

“Uncle Nan Chen is sick! Brother, Uncle Nan Chen had fallen ill!” shouted Erbao.

Dabao was also worried upon hearing that news.

“No way. He seemed fine just a couple of days ago. How did he get so sick all of a sudden?” murmured Cheng Xiangyun.

Ning Ran stared at Dabao and Erbao, then she turned to Cheng Xiangyun.

It was obvious that all three of them were worried about Nan Chen. Why are they so worried about that poker face being sick?

“I wanna go visit Uncle Nan Chen,” said Erbao.

“What? You want to pay him a visit? Why? It’s not like you know him that well, right?” asked Ning Ran who was wondering if she had misheard her daughter.

“Of course, we know him well. He bought us food, toys, and even brought us out to dinner!” “Now that he’s sick, I should go pay him a visit,” said Erbao.

“Dinner? He brought you out to dinner?”

“Not just me, but brother too. Nan Chen even got you dinner, mommy. He had someone pack the food up for…”

Erbao paused as she realized that she had let the cat out of the bag. She covered her tiny lips with her hand and nervously turned to Ning Ran.
