Although Chen Xinyi was truly a notch duller compared to Yun Jian, her beauty was still above average among the girls. It was already incredibly rare, in this society especially, to see a refreshing and sweet young lady like Chen Xinyi.
Since Yun Jian refused to join him, Zhao Zhengmin immediately shifted his target to Chen Xinyi.
“Huh...” Chen Xinyi was stunned for a few seconds from Zhao Zhengmin’s invitation and failed to react promptly.
A talent scout was someone people rarely bumped into whether it was in 1999 or current times. Moreover, those who were recruited by talent scouts were undeniably attractive faces.
Now that she was suddenly scouted by Zhao Zhengmin, this man who called himself a talent scout, Chen Xinyi was shocked but she swiftly regained her composure.
“You... You’re really a talent scout? The one that can send people to act and film and become a celebrity?” Chen Xinyi asked meekly but with obvious interest.
It was apparent that Chen Xinyi’s reaction was different from Yun Jian’s. The latter was visibly uninterested regarding this offer, but Chen Xinyi was only an average junior high school girl who had dreams and fantasies of a girl her age.
Therefore, when Chen Xinyi heard that Zhao Zhengmin was a talent scout, her gaze turned to anticipated and thrilled immediately.
Yun Jian had naturally seen Chen Xinyi’s response. She was not joining Zhao Zhengmin’s company but that did not mean she would stop Chen Xinyi from going for it. In addition, if Chen Xinyi was willing or that she liked it, Yun Jian would offer her greatest support.
Catching Chen Xinyi’s expression, Zhao Zhengmin knew that the girl was incredibly interested in what he said. Hence, he began promoting to her in earnest, “Yes. As long as you join our company—we train models professionally but if you want, you can take part in acting and filming as well. Also, if you train under our company for a few years, you could also debut as...”
Zhao Zhengmin elaborated with jargon filling his sentences.
When Chen Xinyi heard him, she only grew more interested.
“Wow, that sounds amazing! I didn’t expect a talent scout to recruit me! I’m in, I’ll be going! Xiao Jian, I’m so happy!” Chen Xinyi pulled Yun Jian’s hand as she skipped and bounced around in glee.
“This is my business card. You can come to our company for an audition in the evening this Saturday. I’ll make the arrangement for a movie audition by then. There’s a character that fits you perfectly—let me think about it—hmm... the title’s called ‘Pure Innocent Schoolgirl’,” Zhou Zhengmin told Chen Xinyi with beaming eyes.
Yun Jian frowned a little when she heard the title of the movie.
“Great, okay!” Chen Xinyi nodded fervently at the man clutching his card.
“We’ll meet here at 5pm tomorrow then? I’ll drive you to our company,” said Zhou Zhengmin before he added jokingly, “We provide a one-stop service.”
“Sure!” Where in the world could you find a better service than this? Chen Xinyi nodded her head like a rattle drum.
It was only after she exchanged contacts with Zhao Zhengmin that Chen Xinyi dragged Yun Jian away from their school gate in ecstasy.
“Jianjian, it’s awesome! Heh heh, I might become a huge celebrity in the future!” Both of Chen Xinyi’s hands flew up to cup her face as she looked hopeful and dreamy.
“Mn.” Yun Jian nodded but something did not sit right with her from how Zhao Zhengmin behaved just now. It was just that she could not predict the future either, so she could only let the matter slide for now. She could not possibly be a wet blanket when Chen Xinyi was floating in cloud nine right now.
