Chapter 595: Lu Nanze Slays Best Actor Shen (5)
Translator: Atlas Studios Editor: Atlas Studios
The entire room fell silent at these words.
Lu Nanze looked at Shen Liangchuan steadily.
Shen Liangchuan lifted his eyelids momentarily to give the other man a glance.
That look was obviously reserved for fools—it was a mocking glance.
Lu Nanze frowned when he saw that look and was about to speak when Shen Liangchuan reached out for the document.
Immediately, Lu Nanze’s expression darkened as a hint of contempt flashed across his eyes.
It really didn’t matter how noble and virtuous he pretended to be.
Ultimately, wasn’t he just another man who could be persuaded to let go of a woman for the right amount of money?
He didn’t believe for a moment that all this money would not move Shen Liangchuan.
As this thought formed in his mind, Shen Liangchuan closed the document folder. He looked up at Lu Nanze and said, “Two hundred million?”
Those words, uttered in an indifferent tone, caused everyone in the room to widen their eyes in amazement.
Two hundred million!
Nowadays, where would one find an investor who would just give two hundred million?
Everyone’s eyes almost popped out at his next remark, however. “You feel that she’s worth only two hundred million?”
Immediately, Lu Nanze’s pupils shrank.
He had analyzed Shen Liangchuan’s income.
Eight years ago, when he launched his career as an actor, he had been poor as the homeless.
In the last eight years, he had had a fixed income and it was only that much.
But now he was complaining that the deal was not good enough?
Narrowing his eyes, Lu Nanze said, “If you think that’s not enough, then… what about two billion?”
Most people would struggle all their lives and never get to see this much money.
Song Cheng was stirred up by this and looked at Shen Liangchuan.
Shen Liangchuan’s response, however, was to slide the document back to Lu Nanze.
The latter narrowed his eyes and asked, “How much do you want?”
Shen Liangchuan sneered, “I thought you like her. But it looks like… not that much.”
Lu Nanze frowned and demanded, “What do you mean?”
“To you, perhaps she’s worth a certain numerical value. But to me, she’s priceless.”
His words stunned Lu Nanze.
After a moment, Shen Liangchuan turned to look at the director and said, “As I recall, the penalty for breaking a contract with the filming crew is 50 million dollars?”
The director was startled by this question and nodded, stupefied.
Shen Liangchuan took out his bank card and placed it on the table. Without beating around the bush, he simply said, “Let’s break contract.”
Then he got up and, without looking back, strode out of the room.
This move on his part shocked everyone in the room.
No one expected Best Actor Shen to play this hand.
Even Song Cheng was stupefied and for a moment stood rooted to the ground. He wanted to speak but when he saw Shen Liangchuan straighten his back, he swallowed his words and hurriedly dashed out after him.
Lu Nanze stared steadily at the bank card on the table.
Shen Liangchuan’s words echoed in his mind…
“To me she is priceless.”
He was willing to exchange all his cash and break the agreement for the sake of… protecting her?
Lu Nanze clenched his fists tightly and, after a moment, slammed the table with fury.
The more they were in love with each other, the more it would make that man the pitiful victim.
What was he, Lu Nanze, to Qiao Lian exactly?
Song Cheng followed closely behind Shen Liangchuan, throwing glances at him as they walked. The latter showed no sign of any setback and was expressionless, as usual.
He cleared his throat. “Brother Shen, this matter—”
“Don’t tell her.”
Song Cheng was stunned for a moment before he realized the person Shen Liangchuan was referring to was Qiao Lian.
“Book a flight back to Beijing. We’ll leave right now.”
Song Cheng nodded, saying, “Yes.”
