It was already three in the afternoon when Ji Yi made her way over to director Liang's office.
She didn't have an appointment, so as soon as she entered the lobby, she was stopped by a young, beautiful lady at the front desk. "Miss, may I ask who you're looking for?"
"Director Liang Wenxin," replied Ji Yi.
The lady at the front desk picked up the phone and made a call. After a few words in a quiet voice, she put the phone downand gave a polite smile. She raised her head and said to Ji Yi, "Miss, I'm sorry but Director Liang isn't in the office."
Director Liang isn't in the office? Ji Yi thought to herself for two seconds, then changed the question. "Excuse me, is Xu Yi still director Liang's assistant?"
Xu Yi was director Liang's assistant before her accident. When she was on set for Infinite Grace , she was considerably close to him.
"Is he in the office?"
"Yes, Madam please wait." The lady at the front desk picked up the phone, "Assistant Xu, there's a ..."
The lady at the front desk paused, then looked at Ji Yi. Before she could ask for her name, Ji Yi responded, "Ji Yi."
The lady at the front desk continued to speak over the phone, "Miss Ji Yi is here for you."
She didn't know what Xu Yi said over the phone, but the lady replied with an "alright" then hung up the phone. Then she escorted Ji Yi to the elevators. "Assistant Xu is on the seventh floor."
Ji Yi took the elevator up, and when she reached the first floor, the elevator doors opened. There, she suddenly bumped into Xu Yi himself.
Compared to four years ago, Xu Yi had aged a little. He still remembered her, so he chuckled and cried "Xiao Yi" the moment he saw her. Then, he escorted her to his office.
Since Xu Yi had worked in the industry for a long time, of course he knew Ji Yi was there to see him for something. After some casual conversation, he cut right to the chase. "You're here for director Liang's new movie, right?"
"Yeah," openly admitted Ji Yi, without any holding back. "I saw on the news today that director Liang is casting for this new movie, so I came to see what's up."
To her surprise, Xu Yi was still a sentimental person. After hearing her words, he didn't hesitate to tell her, "Xiao Yi, you know I don't have the power to cast people, so I can't guarantee that you can feature in director Liang's new movie. However, I can recommend you to director Liang. It's up to youif you can actually get the part."
After a pause, Xu Yi said, "It's like this: I'm seeing director Liang tonight, so I'll casually mention you to him. When the time comes, I'll give you a call."
With that, Xu Yi looked like he just remembered something. "Oh right, what's your number?"
Ji Yi gave her thanks and left her number with him. Seeing how Xu Yi was probably busy since his phone rang non-stop on his desk, she politely said her goodbyes and left.
After coming out of Xu Yi's office, Ji Yi walked towards the elevator, then heard her name being called with a hesitant voice, "Ji...Yi?"
Ji Yi suddenly froze. After some time, she turned her head. A pretty figure was reflected in her eyes.
It was someone Ji Yi could not be more familiar with.
If He Jichen was the person she was most unwilling to see in the world, then this woman was not far behind.
Her name wasQian Ge. From Sucheng to B-film, Ji Yi had known her for ten whole years.
