To make sure their evening look was on point, Ji Yi and Zhuang Yi first had a full body SPA treatment then called a professional to do their make-up.
After their makeup was done and they changed into their dresses, it was already seven. It was about time to leave for Beiyang Hall.
As Zhuang Yi left to get the car from the underground parking lot of the salon, Ji Yi carefully checked herself all around in the mirror. After confirming that everything looked perfect, she picked up her handbag and leisurely walked out of thebeauty salon.
After standing at the door for half a minute, Zhuang Yi's car arrived.
The car stopped steadily. Zhuang Yi didn't get out to help her open the door, so Ji Yi opened the car door herself. After she got into the car, she realized Zhuang Yi was in the middle of a call.
Ji Yi didn't say anything and shut the car door.
Zhuang Yi raised her phone with one hand and maneuvered the steering wheel with the other as she drove out onto the main road.
They drove for about forty-five minutes as Zhuang Yi lowered the phone from her ear and put it down. As she drove, she said, "I have a good girlfriend who used to be a manager just like me. However, she jumped ship toSu Yihan's company. She's the main planner for this BL Charity Gala, and I just called her to ask for a program for tonight. I just sent it to your phone. Take a look."
As Zhuang Yi finished speaking, Ji Yi's phone went off - "Ding dong!"
She gave Zhuang Yi a soft "Mhm" then reached for her phone and opened the program Zhuang Yi sent to her.
Ji Yi skimmed through it once and realized that it was basically the same program from previous years. But then Ji Yi's brows couldn't help but gently furrow as her eyes swept across Qian Ge's name.
Qian Ge was actually going to sing a duet with Cheng Ke tonight...
Cheng Ke had been famous for eight years, and he was still a respected elder in showbiz. There was a mind-blowing number of female celebrities who wanted to collaborate with him.
Four years ago, after she made it big, Ji Yi was lucky enough to work with him once, so she was somewhat familiar with him. She knew Cheng Ke was an upstanding person who especially hated people who stirred up trouble.
Three months ago, when she was shooting "Three Thousand Lunatics," she heard rumors that Qian Ge's new drama series was looking to cast Cheng Ke to boost her popularity.
After three months had passed, Qian Ge's new drama hadn't been finalized, yet she was going to be together with Cheng Ke at the BL Charity Gala...
As Zhuang Yi drove, she noticed that Ji Yi didn't make a peep. She couldn't resist checking the rear view mirror to glance at Ji Yi. "What's wrong? Is there a problem?"
Ji Yi snapped back to reality and shook her head at Zhuang Yi. Then she replied "nothing" as her mind wandered again.
If she remembered correctly, when she and Cheng Ke worked together back then, Qian Ge was also there. She asked for a picture together with Cheng Ke but was tactfully rejected by him. However, Qian Ge secretly took a selfie with Cheng Ke at the dinner table. Though Cheng Ke's face wasn't in the picture, his unique arm tattoo could clearly be seen...
At that thought, Ji Yi hurriedly opened Qian Ge's Weibo page and started to scroll down.
She scrolled till her fingers hurt. At last, Ji Yi found a photo Qian Ge had posted on Weibo.
Ji Yi took a screenshot, saved it to her phone and put her phone away.
People had to first walk down the red carpet to enter the main hall of the BL Charity Gala.
At the end of the red carpet were the interview and photo area.
When Ji Yi got out of the car, the minivan behind them happened to also open their doors. She instinctively glanced over to see...
