Just Want to Be His Lover

Chapter 26.2: His Looks Could Kill

The producer didn’t really understand the logic behind this request. There was no need to find a good reason for bad stage effects. He could just act pitiful, and the forums and votes would certainly lean towards him. 

“I feel that you can still explain the reason for the stage changes to the audience prior to the performance.” 

“I don’t think that it’s a good thing to reveal anything that might affect the votes before the voting results are released.” Gu Yanshu’s voice was getting hoarser, and his face was pale. From the looks of it, he was clearly in a bad condition. 

The producer did not believe that Gu Yanshu could create a miracle within two days. Even though Gu Yanshu was indeed a better performer than Chen Ran, was he being defeatist by acting so saintly despite all these problems happening? 

But all of this was none of his concern. He didn’t want to offend Gu Yanshu, so he agreed, “Sure, that’s not a problem. As for the stage…” 


“I’ll think of something for the stage, and will give you a new proposal in the afternoon. However, I’ll need to trouble all of you to clock a bit of overtime, I’ll be here to rehearse at night.” 

“Sure, sure. Just let us know all your requests, Teacher Gu,” the producer said courteously. 

The entire discussion continued smoothly, and after settling a few more things, the producer walked Gu Yanshu out of the studio.

No one could stay at the top forever. She didn’t believe that Gu Yanshu could get out of this situation unscathed. 


Gu Yanshu was brought to the hospital by Shen Jue. He was diagnosed with a simple low-grade fever, and would recover after he rested and ate his medicine. It was only then that all of them were relieved. 

Back at the villa, Gu Yanshu took out his laptop and began working again. 

A stage need not be embellished by glamorous props or a multitude of dancers. If he was unable to win with the design that he originally envisaged, then he would choose to keep it simple. 

However, in order to retain the powerful stage presence, he needed to make quite a number of amendments to the song’s arrangement, and a lot of planning work had to go into it, before he could determine if the effects he had thought about could be realised. 

Ding Yun was right. What was most important in this industry was one’s abilities. Even accidents and illnesses were not sufficient reasons for presenting an incomplete or imperfect performance. 

And that was the reason why Gu Yanshu gritted his teeth and planned every single detail on his own once more, so that he could ensure that the performance would be perfect. 

“Cohabitation Life” started out as a programme to satisfy the viewers’ voyeuristic desires into the lives of celebrities. Both “Cohabitation Life” and “The Greatest Stage” were Guokong TV’s programmes, hence after some discussions, both sides agreed to work on a special episode called “The Difficult Life of a Celebrity”, which would record the entire backstage planning that was done for Gu Yanshu and Jie Shuang for “The Greatest Stage”. 

Gu Yanshu was still having a fever, but he still planned his performance and communicated with the programme team all by himself. He even had multiple rehearsals, and everything that he did was captured by the team following him. 

Shen Jue knew how important this performance was to Gu Yanshu, and he had also realised that what Gu Yanshu needed now was to prove  himself. Hence, even though his heart would ache, he would still leave Gu Yanshu alone most of the time, except when it came to feeding him, bringing him warm water, medicine, and milk candy. 

What Gu Yanshu needed now was concern and respect, but not his over-protectiveness.

However, when Shen Jue loaned money from the production team to purchase pork ribs to brew a soup for Gu Yanshu, he suddenly felt as though he was a housewife behind his enterprising man.
