Rebirth: Ghost Exorciser - Chapter 1401 - Internal Conflict (1)
Chapter 1401 – Internal Conflict (1)
When Director Wang made this decision, Yang Kun and Ruan Shenglin’s faces stiffened. Yan Zhengming, Cao Zhengsong, Song Chu and Ke Mingmei also looked hesitant and wanted to say something, but didn’t. On the other hand, Du Lan was the happiest. She couldn’t wait for Director Wang to tell everyone not to leave the village and to obediently go back to shoot the movie.
She actually didn’t like Dashan Village with its very backward conditions, but only by filming this movie as soon as possible could she leave the village for good and not lose the chance to climb up the ranks at the same time.
Du Lan saw that Yan Zhengming had yet to turn around as soon as Director Wang finished speaking, and she couldn’t help but chime in, “Brother Yan, Director Wang already said to go back to the village, so what are you doing? We should turn the car around and go back as soon as possible!” As she spoke, she yawned and looked at the furious Director Wang. She deliberately said, “I still want to get in my beauty sleep so that I can perform well in Director Wang’s movie tomorrow and strive to film well!”
Du Lan originally wanted to curry favor with Director Wang, but she inadvertently offended everyone else except for Ke Mingmei. Everyone had different reactions to her words, but they were all negative. Those who didn’t know better would really think that she was working hard and serious about filming, but in fact, she was just putting on an act in front of Director Wang.
In particular, she was deliberately stepping on Yang Kun and Ruan Shenglin with these words. For someone like her to step on Ruan Shenglin, the Film Emperor – was she worthy?!
Fortunately, Ruan Shenglin’s reaction was calm. Yang Kun, this manager, was very protective. Seeing that Du Lan had actually stepped on him and Shenglin with these words, there was no warmth in his eyes. He made up his mind to teach this woman a lesson at some point. Did she really think she had become some big shot?
Cao Zhengsong and Song Chu also disdained Du Lan. As for Yan Zhengming, he glared at this woman. He was just as protective as Yang Kun, but it had more to do with covering Yang Kun’s shortcomings. There was no warmth in his eyes when he looked at Du Lan in the rearview mirror.
As for Ke Mingmei, who was smarter, she knew that if she spoke up for Du Lan now, everyone would hate her, so she remained silent.
Of course, she had her own selfish motives for being silent. Compared with Du Lan, who was in a hurry to go back, Ke Mingmei actually didn’t want to go back. It wasn’t that she believed the girl whom Film Emperor Ruan and Yang Kun trusted so much – compared with that, she trusted her intuition more, plus, she had observed Qin Qing behaving strangely for the past two days.
Not only did she feel that something was wrong with the village, she also sensed that something had been wrong with Qin Qing for the past two days. Because of this, she felt even more uneasy and felt that it was best to leave as soon as possible.
Everyone had different thoughts, but Du Lan’s words indeed won Director Wang’s favor. Seeing that no one spoke and Yan Zhengming was still driving, Director Wang looked unhappy and immediately ordered, “Zhengming, stop the car immediately, turn around, and go back to the village! Do you hear me? I won’t say it again!”
When Director Wang spoke again, Yan Zhengming didn’t dare disobey. He was about to turn around, but who would have thought that Yang Kun, this guy, would suddenly interrupt and even disagree with Director Wang? Yang Kun said to him, “Old Yan, keep driving and leave the village as soon as possible.” After a pause, Yang Kun immediately explained earnestly to an irate Director Wang, “Director Wang, we really can’t go back to the village. That place is especially strange and is going to experience a huge earthquake. Wouldn’t we be courting death if we go back?”
Ruan Shenglin quickly supported Yang Kun and said, “I agree with Brother Kun. Director Wang, you should know what kind of person I am. If it isn’t for the fact that something really isn’t right, I wouldn’t be making such a fuss. Besides, if we go back, what if there really is an earthquake in Dashan Village tomorrow? Better to be safe than sorry!”
Ruan Shenglin had a very high status in Director Wang’s heart to begin with. Since Ruan Shenglin had spoken, Director Wang naturally had to give it more consideration. Compared with the anger he had been suppressing just now, when Director Wang heard the two solemnly mention the earthquake, he was a little confused and flustered.
Like Shenglin said, it was better to be safe than sorry. If there really was an earthquake in the village tomorrow or the day after, Director Wang really couldn’t afford to take responsibility.
Seeing Director Wang’s expression waver, Du Lan was indignant and contemptuous. Without waiting for Director Wang to think about it, she immediately wanted to persuade him. “Director Wang, even if there really will be an earthquake in the village, it’s not like it will happen just because someone said so. Film Emperor Ruan and Brother Yang must have been deceived by that Chi woman. She’s the one who said that there will be an earthquake. That little girl just says whatever she wants. She just said a few words and we all left the village. Can she take responsibility for the losses of the film crew? Can a little girl like her take responsibility?”
Without waiting for Yang Kun and Ruan Shenglin to speak again, Du Lan continued to scoff. “By the way, Director Wang, this girl even spread superstitions in Dashan Village back then. How can we believe such a person? How dare we believe her? In any case, I don’t believe what that Chi woman says about ghosts and earthquakes in Dashan Village!”
Seeing that Du Lan had convinced Director Wang, Ruan Shenglin and Yang Kun were anxious and hostile. Their eyes turned red with panic. Yang Kun cursed inwardly. Who was the one who had let this Du woman into the car just now?
Compared with Du Lan, he would rather have Song Yanru in their car. If he had known earlier, he would have persuaded her to take their car even after she refused, and they wouldn’t have this eyesore of a woman here.
If it wasn’t for this woman, Director Wang would have been convinced long ago.
At the thought that this woman wanted everyone to die with her, Yang Kun was furious and filled with hatred. He immediately had Yan Zhengming stop the car. For the first time, there was obvious disgust on his face. He didn’t give the other party any face and said coldly, “Surnamed Du, if you want to get out of the car, get out yourself. You’re not welcome here! Get out!”
Du Lan didn’t expect Yang Kun to not give her face and to directly tell her to get out of the car in front of everyone. She was someone who cared a lot about her dignity. When she heard his words, her face shifted between green and white. Her expression disappeared completely and her face gradually stiffened.
She couldn’t afford to offend Yang Kun. She was about to say a few words to Ruan Shenglin, when she unexpectedly heard Film Emperor Ruan also tell her to get out of the car.
Du Lan’s face turned completely pale.
The atmosphere in the car fell silent again. Yan Zhengming had stopped the car, and he was shocked to see that Yang Kun and Shenglin really wanted Du Lan to get out.
Song Chu and Cao Zhengsong were also surprised.
In fact, in the eyes of Yan Zhengming, Song Chu and Cao Zhengsong, Du Lan’s words actually made some sense. If Shenglin and Yang Kun really were making them all leave the village because of the words of a young lady, that was indeed very irrational.
If they had heard this directly from the young lady herself, they would never have chosen to leave the village immediately.
At that time, they really thought that it was Director Wang who had confirmed the matter and wanted them to leave.
Yan Zhengming wanted to say something, but hesitated.
Ruan Shenglin and Yang Kun really didn’t plan to let Du Lan stay in their car any longer. Ruan Shenglin itched to call Song Yanru and tell her to come over and take their van. However, Song Yanru had her own car, so the possibility of her coming over wasn’t high.
Ruan Shenglin expressed his stance coldly and said to Du Lan, “Miss Du, get out of the car!”
Du Lan naturally couldn’t get out of the car at that moment. If she did, the others would leave her alone in the middle of nowhere.
Du Lan gritted her teeth and deliberately said to Director Wang, “If Director Wang gets out of the car, I’ll get out.” After saying that, she deliberately said to Director Wang, “Director Wang, I think Film Emperor Ruan and Manager Yang must have been brainwashed for a reason. Let’s turn around and go back to the village. We still have to film early tomorrow morning! After all, we put in so much effort before. I can’t just stand on the side and give up on that. The assistant director and the producer are still waiting for us in the village!”
These words made Director Wang waver. If they really left the village, everything they had filmed before would probably go to waste. How much investment would be wasted?
Moreover, it wasn’t that he didn’t believe Ruan Shenglin and Yang Kun, but that he didn’t believe the young lady’s words. She just said a few light words to the two of them, and they were all forced to leave the village. How could Shenglin and Yang Kun believe her?
The more Director Wang thought about how these two brats had tricked him into buying talismans from the young lady, the more he felt that something wasn’t right. The more he thought about it, the more he suspected that the two brats had probably really been brainwashed by that young lady. Director Wang was about to speak.
Without waiting for Director Wang to speak, Ruan Shenglin and Yang Kun expressed their attitude first. “Director Wang, whether you believe it or not, since we’ve left the village tonight, we’ve never thought of going back. Also, Director Wang, what Shenglin and I said before is true. That girl isn’t just any young lady, but a real Master. If you don’t believe me, I can get her to tell you herself!”
