At ten o’clock in the morning, it was Hou Chen Yuhan’s doctor appointment.
In the waiting room, there were pregnant women with some chatting while some dozing off… Maybe they were falling asleep alongside the little life in their stomachs.
Hou Chen Yuhan didn’t like the smell in the hospital. She was waiting impatiently for her number to arrive – at least she was anxious deep down her heart.
At this time, a pregnant woman next to her suddenly had a pregnancy reaction and was nauseated.
“Are you okay? Do you want me to call the nurse over for you?” Hou Chen Yuhan asked in concern.
The lady shook her head and frowned, “It’s okay. Probably this kid is too naughty. He has been acting bad from morning till now. I will be fine with another plum candy.”
“You can try applying essential balm.” Hou Chen Yuhan smiled and said, “Drip a little on a handkerchief or tissue. Then, cover your nose for a while and breathe in.”
This lady’s belly was not big. She probably got pregnant not too long ago. At this time, hearing Hou Chen Yuhan’s words, she said in embarrassment, “This is my first time being a mother. I don’t know many things. ”
Hou Chen Yuhan smiled and said, “It’s like this for the first time. Get used to it.”
As the pregnant lady started speaking, she became more chatty. This novice mother asked in curiosity, “Right, how many babies have you conceived?”
“No. 12, here you are!” The reception nurse called the number.
Hou Chen Yuhan stood up quickly, “It’s my turn. Sorry.”
“It’s alright. You should go ahead with your matter.” The lady waved her hand.
This doctor had many years of experience. She was in her early fifties. For all the mothers who came here to make an appointment, they would somehow feel safe.
Hou Chen Yuhan sat quietly on the chair, clutching her purse with both hands, and looked a little uneasy… When she came in, the doctor whom she had visited for some time didn’t have any expressions on the face. She felt uneasy,”Doctor, what is the result this time?”
“Mrs. Zhu, unfortunately, you didn’t get pregnant this time.” The doctor shook her head and said, “Your cycle has all ended. I suggest you continue to take care of your body during the next period of time…”
What is the doctor talking about?
Hou Chen Yuhan didn’t listen to it at all, or perhaps it didn’t matter at all to not listen to it – she could even recite words that she heard multiple times.
Hou Chen Yuhan silently took her bag and pushed open the door of the doctor’s office. At this moment, the novice mother who had just chatted with her quickly waved at her.
Hou Chen Yuhan moved her lips, but just nodded towards the novice mother. Then, she lowered her head and left from the other side, without intending to go there.
She hid in the bathroom alone, locked the door, and didn’t intend to bear it any longer. She just lightly covered her mouth and squatted here.
Her shoulders trembled slightly as she wept silently.
She really wanted to let time go back.
“Manager, she is downstairs.”
“Then, let her come up.” Zhu Maolin stood up and kept the papers on his desk, “Take her directly to the meeting room.”
He hoped that the one he would be seeing today could meet the requirements. Otherwise, he could only use the completed film. Zhu Maolin came to the meeting room alone, and then pulled down about half of the curtains here.
*Mobile phone text message*
Only when Zhu Maolin sat down, he saw his wife’s short text message.
Wife: Are you busy?
Zhu Maolin: I’m about to interview a model. Anything?
Wife: The doctor said I failed again this time.
Zhu Maolin pressed his finger on the screen of the phone and paused. At this moment, the sound of knocking on the door rang, and he replied: We talk about it once I’m back home.
Wife: What time will you be back tonight?
“Manager, this is Little Lu.” Tboy introduced a young girl with long hair he had brought in.
The elements of youth and beauty were fully displayed on this Little Lu. A bright smile accompanied her. After a brief glance, Zhu Maolin nodded, “It’s not bad, sit down and let’s proceed. Tboy, you ask her some questions first. I will watch at the side.”
Little Lu also sat down slightly nervously.
Zhu Maolin replied at this time: She is here. I need to continue my work first. Don’t wait for me at night.
He didn’t wait for his wife’s reply, and he didn’t seem to intend to reply more. After putting down the phone, he devoted himself to the interview, observing every reaction and movement of the girl under Tboy’s questions.
“Miss Xiaolu, have you used this product yourself?” One of Tboy’s questions.
“Honestly. I haven’t used it… Is that alright?” asked Xiao Lu a little uneasy.
Tboy smiled and said, “It’s just for reference. Don’t mind it. Then, the next question.”
At this time, Zhu Maolin suddenly interrupted and asked, “If I told you that the filming will take place in an hour and you only have up to 30 minutes to read the script, what will you do?”
“Immediately?” Xiao Lu was obviously taken aback by the manager of the advertising agency.
In the industry, Zhu Maolin could be regarded as a relatively well-known person. It was rumored that this well-known person in the industry was a well-known workaholic and stringent in efficiency. Although she was somewhat psychologically prepared before coming, she never thought it would be so sudden.
“Yes, right away. You just have to tell me what you will do.” Zhu Maolin nodded.
The strong professional aura made this young girl who had not graduated from campus felt out of breath. She lowered her head and said, “I…I will do my best.”
Hearing this answer, Tboy couldn’t help but shook his head secretly… If it weren’t for Zhu Maolin, who was the leader, that he wanted a new face, it would be inappropriate to find such a newcomer at this juncture.
But, Zhu Maolin’s eyes were still gave heavy pressure on the little girl in front of him, and he said nothing.
Little Lu’s fingers grasp tightly under the table, then she stood up with her head down, “Yes, I’m sorry, I’m bothering you.”
She already saw Tboy’s gaze hunting disqualification.
“Where are you going?” asked Zhu Maolin abruptly.
“You are gone, who will shoot the film?” Zhu Maolin said calmly, “Me?”
“Really…really?” Xiao Lu was startled, her eyes widened, and she looked at the scary manager in disbelief.
Zhu Maolin just said indifferently, “Tboy, I give you five minutes to print out copies of the script. Then, you have 40 minutes to explain to her. After an hour, let the makeup artist come to the set. The official shoot is at 2:30 in the afternoon. Make it quick. ”
“Manager… meal time?” Tboy said bitterly, “Manager, don’t you eat?”
“On the way.” Zhu Maolin said directly, “Bring her a meal too. Remember, we are fighting against time. Go!”
