"Oh? Then why are you cooperating with them? Aren't you a pillar? You should have the right to ask them to change the show." Xiang Nan asked curiously.
Xiao Wan sighed and said, "That's right, but what the audience wants to see is not a tragedy, but a happy ending for all."
"We have to first make the audience willing to see it before anyone can see it."
"Yes, that's true." Xiang Nan thought for a moment and said, "There is always a gap between reality and drama."
Xiao Wan said seriously, "Then it's settled. From today onwards, I will personally take care of you. Although you are not as handsome as Luo Xiao, your figure is not bad."
As she spoke, Xiao Wan carefully examined Xiang Nan with her chin on her back and said, "Take off your robe and let me see your body."
Xiang Nan took off his robe and spread out his arms.
Xiao Wan's eyes lit up and she said, "Sure, your body is pretty sturdy. Your figure can be considered one of the best in our regiment. Your legs seem to be a little longer than Luo Xiao's."
"How much acting experience do you have?"
Xiang Nan shook his head.
Xiao Wan said, "Then how is your line skill?"
Xiang Nan still shook his head.
Xiao Wan frowned, "So it's white paper. How about this, let's go back to the rehearsal now."
"Rehearsal?" Xiang Nanqi said.
"Of course we need to rehearse," said Xiao Wan. "Otherwise, how are we going to perform? Follow me."
As she spoke, Xiao Wan, regardless of whether Xiang Nan was willing or not, pulled him to the performance studio.
At this time, the actors and actresses had already begun to remove their makeup, while Xiao Wan forcefully pulled everyone to stay and accompany the rehearsal once more.
Liu Dongyuan nodded his head in satisfaction and thought to himself, "Although Xiao Wan's personality is a little strange, she is still very gratifying when she becomes serious."
On the stage, the actors were ready.
First of all, there was only one table on the stage. A storyteller sat down. He slapped the wooden woods and said, "There are eight great sects in the Nine Heavens of the Southern Domain …"
This storyteller is called "Bai Chang." He will first introduce the general background of the story, as well as the general history of the entire sect's ranking tournament. Then, the actors will come on stage and perform the most important part.
"Yue Donghai" had already defeated many disciples and was standing proudly on the stage.
"It's your turn to play." Xiao Wan stuffed Xiang Nan with a huge knife and a line and said, "For the first rehearsal, you can read the line. Go."
Xiang Nan weighed the huge saber in his hand. This thing seemed to be made of wood. It was very light.
"What are you waiting for? Hurry up and go." Xiao Wan pushed Xiang Nan out.
"You! Xiang Nan!" Yue Donghai pointed at Xiang Nan and laughed loudly, "Come, you will become my loser. I, Yue Donghai, am the number one expert in the Nine Firmaments!"
Xiang Nan held a knife in his right hand and a line in his left, saying, "Yue Donghai! You are indeed very powerful! But don't forget who I am!"
"I am Xiang Nan, the seventh expert of the Seven Tigers of the Southern Domain. Today, I will represent the Nine Heavens and the people. I will destroy you … What the hell is this!"
Xiang Nan shook his line and said, "Is this line teasing me?"
"Stop!" Xiao Wan shouted a stop and rushed forward, "Xiang Bei, what happened to you?"
Xiang Nan said, "Who claims to be an expert? Isn't Xiang Nan from the Blue Tide Continent? Why does he represent the Nine Firmaments? It's so childish to destroy you."
Xiao Wan said, "It is more righteous to say so. Xiang Nan is of course an expert who can defeat Yue Donghai."
Xiang Nan wondered, "But he hasn't defeated Yue Donghai yet. How can he know that he is an expert in advance?"
"Don't be picky!" Xiao Wan glared, "Are you going to act or not?"
"Acting." Xiang Nan was helpless and could only continue to read along the lines.
As the actors watched Xiang Nan's performance, they frowned and whispered, "Xiao Wan, this Xiang Bei is no good. He doesn't have any acting experience at all. He doesn't even look at the audience. He keeps looking at Yue Donghai."
"Yes, Xiaowan." Someone next to him said, "Look at him. He doesn't look righteous at all. Look at his expressionless face!"
By this time, the stage was already open.
Yue Donghai ran up and threw a punch at Xiang Nan's head.
Xiang Nan looked at the lines. There were even illustrations on them, and it was written that he would grab Yue Donghai by the collar and throw him out fiercely.
Xiang Nan scratched his head and said, " Xiao Wan , this action is a little strange."
Xiao Wan said, "Stop!"
She walked over and said, "What's wrong?"
Xiang Nan said, "Here, I'm going to throw Yue Donghai out and make him fall to the ground."
"That's right." Xiao Wan said.
Xiang Nan said, "That Yue Donghai absorbed the blood of the Black Tortoise and was unable to cut through his defense with his saber. Why did he throw him out like this? Did he hurt him?"
Xiao Wan said, "Why are you doing so many things? Throwing him out is to show that Xiang Nan is tall and majestic, radiant and correct!"
"But that doesn't make sense." Xiang Nan said, "Then …"
"Alright." Xiang Nan still wanted to defend herself, but Xiao Wan waved her hand and said, "Follow the lines. No more questions are allowed. Do you understand?"
"Oh." Xiang Nan nodded.
After a performance, all the actors agreed that Xiang Nan did not have any talent for acting. Everyone advised Xiao Wan to give up Xiang Bei directly.
Xiao Wan was also helpless. She looked for Xiang Nan and said, "Don't sleep tonight. I'm going to give you performance training overnight."
"There's no need" Xiang Nan was greatly discouraged. "I think my acting was quite good."
Everyone went back to rest. Only Xiang Nan and Xiao Wan remained on the stage. Xiao Wan taught Xiang Nan hand in hand and even personally demonstrated it to Xiang Nan.
"Acting is different from reality," said Xiao Wan seriously. "Acting is an artistic method. Many times, many actions seem to be unreasonable, but in order to set off the atmosphere and achieve the results, you have to do this, understand?"
"Understood." Xiang Nan nodded.
After a night of training, Xiang Nan had gained a deeper understanding of the art of performing.
He finally realized that many of the things he was going to say to Yue Donghai were actually meant for the audience, because the audience needed to see Xiang Nan's expression and gaze.
Xiang Nan's subconscious movements were also inappropriate. For example, when fighting, he would seriously stare at Yue Donghai and prepare for battle at any time. There were many such movements!
Because he wanted to make sure that he would leave his face to the audience, not Yue Donghai.
Many of the things on the show had serious conflicts with reality, but there was nothing Xiang Nan could do. He could only follow Xiao Wan's instructions.
Three days later, Eldest Miss Jiang Xue Lu came to the private arena again.
Xiang Nan was eager to perform, but was told that he was only a substitute and Luo Xiao was the main character.
Xiang Nanqi said, "Since you won't let me go on stage, why would you make me train so hard?"
Xiao Wan said seriously, "One minute on stage and ten years off stage. I believe that you will be able to officially take the lead in another five years or so."
"Five years." Xiang Nan rubbed his temples.
The performance had already begun.
This time, Miss Jiang Xue Lu did not sit far away in the private room. Instead, she went straight to the first row of the spectators' seats. She wanted to enjoy the performance at close range.
The previous few performances had already been omitted. Jiang Xue Lu was not interested in those performances. She only needed to watch the Iron Blood Heroic Soul.
Xiang Nan stood at the entrance of the curtain with his shoulders crossed. He watched the performance while paying attention to the peerlessly beautiful General Xue Lu.
At the same time, Xiang Nan discovered a very noteworthy person.
Bring Xue Lu along with five personal bodyguards. These five people were all experts of the 1st level of the Heavenly Yuan Realm. If such an expert were to be placed in the Western Regions, they would be a small overlord who dominated the entire region.
However, it was worth noting that a tall and sturdy bodyguard behaved strangely.
