After this sudden development, Director Jacob was surely going to suspend the shooting, right? After all, Thrice Reckless Mad Saber had modified the plot beyond recognition!
But contrary to everyone’s expectations, Director Jacob didn’t intervene.
Director Jacob didn’t stop the shooting, because he felt that the performance of this minor character that had just appeared was excellent! Although he was supposed to say just a few lines, his performance turned out to be quite good and full of enthusiasm even if he wrongly pronounced the name at the end.
Director Jacob was an expert when it came to China and Chinese, and he could hear and comprehend the content of the lines of the actors just fine. Therefore, he was aware that this ‘minor character’ had gotten the name of the man that Senior Sister Murong Hua was going to marry wrong.
However, it didn’t matter. As long as his outward expression while performing was good, it was fine.
As for the dubbing of the lines of the various actors, it was something they could fix in the sound recording studio after the shooting of the movie. Since they had to modify only the lines of a minor character, they could casually grab someone to dub that part again.
In addition, the only thing that this minor character got wrong was the name at the end. The remaining part was fine and matched the movements of his lips. With that, it would be even easier to dub that part during the post-production phase!
Even if the actor was saying something like ‘one, two, three, four, five, six, seven’ during the shooting of the movie, it was possible to change the part during the post-production phase and turn it into cool lines. Therefore, the current situation wasn’t problematic at all.
Such being the case, they didn’t need to worry and could keep shooting the scene.
As long as the facial expression of this minor character was on point, there was no problem whatsoever.
Thereupon, Director Jacob decided not to cut out the part of this minor character full of enthusiasm.
Well, one couldn’t deny that all those that excelled at seeking death were indeed full of enthusiasm.
Since Director Jacob didn’t put a stop to the shooting of the scene, the show had to go on!
Venerable White instantly returned to his senses and placed himself in the shoes of his character once again. If Senior Sister Murong Hua was going to marry Thrice Reckless Mad Saber, then so be it. After all, it was something between Medicine Master and Riverly Purple Mist. In other words, it didn’t concern him.
In the next moment, the anxiety on Venerable White’s face increased as he asked, “Ling Sen, where is Senior Sister Murong now? Bring me where she is, I want to see her!”
“Senior Brother Ling Ye, I just came over from Senior Sister Murong Hua’s place. At this time, her dwelling is full of people. I’m afraid you won’t be able to see her before she marries that ‘Thrice Reckless Mad Saber’. However, Senior Sister Murong Hua told me to give you this letter.” Thrice Reckless Mad Saber’s played the role of this minor character incredibly well, perfectly showing the anxiety of his character.
He hurriedly took a letter out of his clothes and handed it over to Senior Brother Ling Ye.
Venerable White took the letter in his hands.
Director Jacob waved his hand. The camera first focused on Venerable White’s face and then on the content of the letter in his hands.
“If you stand by my side, I won’t leave you for a lifetime.” It felt as though Senior Sister Murong had carved each of the words on the letter paper. The letter wasn’t long, and it was mainly telling Ling Ye one thing.
Senior Sister Murong Hua wanted Ling Ye to come to the wedding location three days later, right on the day of the marriage… as long as Ling Ye came, she would get married to him even if all the people in the world tried to stop her!
Senior Sister Murong Hua had revealed all her feelings in the letter.
The camera again focused on Venerable White’s body.
Venerable White clutched the letter, and a firm expression appeared on his face. “Even if my legs were to break, I’ll crawl to the location of the wedding three days from now on!”
“Ling Sen, thank you for delivering me this letter. I’m really grateful for what you did,” Venerable White said.
“It’s a pity that I can do only this much.” Thrice Reckless Mad Saber sighed with emotion, and a desolate expression appeared on his face.
The camera zoomed out and the ripples that had formed on the limpid surface of the lake were now visible.
The wind blew, and the broken leaves danced in the air.
Venerable White kept playing Ling Ye’s role and tightly clutched the letter while grasping his sword with the other hand. His hair and daoist robe were currently fluttering in the wind.
Thrice Reckless Mad Saber played Ling Sen’s role and stood in front of Venerable White with a desolate look in his eyes.
Thrice Reckless Mad Saber brought upon himself the stigma of being wild and crazy. Now that he wasn’t seeking death and was quietly standing in place, he looked rather handsome.
The current scene could be used as a wallpaper without problems.
Director Jacob felt that this scene was perfect to conclude the shooting of this segment. “Cut!”
The shooting of the first scene of the second act was complete!
Next was the part where the ferocious wild beasts would attack Ling Ye.
“Everyone should seize this opportunity to take a short break. We’ll start with the shooting of the next part in a while. Mister Song Bai, your acting was perfect this time around as well. The acting of this mister that performed Ling Sen’s role was also very good and full of enthusiasm. It’s a shame that you only got to play the role of such a minor character.” Director Jacob rarely spoke this much.
Venerable White faintly smiled.
Thrice Reckless Mad Saber laughed complacently.
Afterward, Venerable White put his sword away and waved his hand at Thrice Reckless Mad Saber.
Then, he waved at Cave Lord Snow Wolf and his family, preparing to go to the next shooting location together with them.
After seeing that Venerable White was about to leave, Thrice Reckless Mad Saber immediately called out, “Eh? Senior White, wait a moment!”
Venerable White turned around and looked at Thrice Reckless Mad Saber in puzzlement. “Yes?”
“Senior White… shouldn’t you give me a ride on your ‘disposable flying sword’ and send me away at this time? After all, I just sought death and ruined the plot of the movie. Therefore, you must be quite unhappy right now, am I correct?” Thrice Reckless Mad Saber reminded Venerable White out of ‘kindness’. “Come, don’t take pity on me. Send me flying away with a disposable flying sword. Even if it’s the revised version, the disposable meteor sword, I’m not afraid. I’m the fearless Thrice Reckless Mad Saber!”
How could Thrice Reckless Mad Saber continuously seek death and not die?
Reason number one: he followed the principle of not seeking death for more than three times in regards to a single subject. As long as he could keep this point in mind, he could avoid dying while seeking death.
Unfortunately, he found it impossible to control himself at times. Therefore, what to do if he sought death for more than three times by mistake?
No need to worry, here came the second reason!
Reason number two: whenever he was on a death-seeking spree, he would leave a path of retreat for himself.
For example, when he buried Su Clan’s Seven, Medicine Master, and Riverly Purple Mist, he was clever enough to bury Miss Riverly Purple Mist and Medicine Master together. Therefore, Miss Riverly Purple Mist became his path of escape.
Likewise, when he sought death this time, he left behind a line of escape… you guessed it right, this line of escape was Venerable White!
Venerable White’s disposable flying swords were fast and highly efficient. All those that had tried them once knew about this point!
Thrice Reckless thought that Senior White would get angry if he recklessly ruined the plot of the movie this time. After getting angry, Senior White would then give him a ride on his disposable flying sword or disposable meteor sword.
Disposable flying swords were extremely fast. As long as he whizzed away, he would cross thousands of miles in the blink of an eye.
At that time, whether it was Medicine Master, Riverly Purple Mist, or Su Clan’s Seven, they wouldn’t be able to catch him and would only bite the dust!
Once he was far enough, he would run away to space. At that time, it would be truly impossible to find him.
Even if Miss Riverly Purple Mist weighed all circumstances, she shouldn’t have considered this point, right?
Miss Riverly Purple Mist, giving me the antidote after I brought Fellow Daoist Medicine Master’s parents over here was your biggest mistake!
You’ll deeply regret it later since you’ll be marrying ‘Thrice Reckless Mad Saber’ in the movie!
“Eh? Why would I want to send you away with a disposable flying sword?” Venerable White asked out curiosity.
“Ah?” Thrice Reckless Mad Saber stiffened and said, “Senior White, I ruined the plot of the movie! I just ruined the plot of the movie you wanted to shoot so much! Aren’t you angry?”
“If I have to be honest, I was a bit surprised at first, but I didn’t get angry. On the contrary, I felt that it was rather amusing.” Venerable White blinked his eyes and said, “In addition, didn’t you hear what the director just said? Fellow Daoist Thrice Reckless’ performance was very good and full of enthusiasm, to the point that even the director praised you. I also felt that your performance was outstanding.”
Thrice Reckless Mad Saber was stunned and speechless.
No! Senior White, why aren’t you acting according to the script?!
In addition, it seemed that the mistake lay with me?
My performance was too outstanding and full of enthusiasm, to the point that even the director and Venerable White praised it? Thereupon, not only Venerable White didn’t get angry, he even found the scene amusing?
How had things exactly ended up like this?
Without the help of Venerable White’s disposable flying sword, he had no chance of escaping.
Even if the speed of his flying sword was fast, there were some fellow daoists in the Nine Provinces Number One Group that were even faster than him!
This time, it was really over for him!
After all, Miss Riverly Purple Mist was even scarier than Medicine Master.
This is bad. I have to quickly think of a way!
Now that the matter had developed to such a point, there was only one last solution.
Thrice Reckless Mad Saber looked at Venerable White. Since ruining the plot of the movie wasn’t enough to anger Venerable White and make him use the disposable flying sword to send him away… he had no choice but to seek death one more time!
“Senior White!” Thrice Reckless Mad Saber called out.
“Hmm? Is something the matter?” Venerable White looked curiously at Thrice Reckless Mad Saber.
“Senior White, twin-tails really suit you and look very cute on you!” Thrice Reckless Mad Saber shouted loudly. “When your hair is worn into a bun, it looks very good as well. I’ll take those pictures and print them out in a 1:1 scale, hanging them on the wall of my room!”
The surrounding fellow daoists of the Nine Provinces Number One Group were stunned.
Cave Lord Snow Wolf said, “Has Thrice Reckless gone mad? He unexpectedly dared to mention that matter about the twin-tails in front of Senior White?”
Fairy Lychee asked, “Does Thrice Reckless have some kind of plan?”
Northern River’s Loose Cultivator replied, “I think he’s doing it on purpose!”
Su Clan’s Sixteen said, “Under these circumstances, he should have successfully managed to anger Senior White, right?”
The various fellow daoists made their guesses.
But right at this moment, Venerable White nodded and said, “Thanks for the compliment?”
After that meteor shower descended onto the Grievance Settling Platform, Senior White stopped caring about this matter related to the ‘Senior White’s expression package’.
In other words, he was already immune to anything related to the expression package.
Even if the fellow daoists of the Nine Provinces Number One Group mentioned the matter, he would let it go with a smile.
Thrice Reckless Mad Saber was speechless.
F*ck, has Senior White eaten the wrong medicine today? Why is he so cute?
Venerable White faintly smiled. It was a beautiful smile and could heal one’s heart.
Thrice Reckless was doing everything in power to get Venerable White to send him away with his disposable flying sword, which would allow him to escape and avoid the anger of Medicine Master and Miss Riverly Purple Mist.
Therefore, how could he force Venerable White to give him a ride with his disposable flying sword?
“Fellow Daoist Thrice Reckless~” Right at this time, the nearby Young Master Phoenix Slayer waved his phone and said, “I’ve already notified Medicine Master and Miss Riverly Purple Mist. No need to thank me, I’m always happy to help others.”
“Young Master Phoenix Slayer, I’ll remember this!” Thrice Reckless Mad Saber called out.
