My Wife Is a Superstar Chapter 680

Chapter 680 How Strong Their Bond Is

Ning Ran was fuming when she returned to Mountview Inn. She saw Nan Xing playing with her two kids when she came in through the door. This was her first time seeing Nan Xing ever since that previous incident.

Although their relationship was no longer the same as before, Nan Xing still stepped forward to give Ning Ran a hug when he saw her. Since Nan Xing always had her best interests in mind, she happily accepted his embrace.

“It’s so great to see that you’re alive!” Nan Xing exclaimed with a smile. “Yeah, I agree. It is indeed great to be alive.”  Ning Ran was in a terrible mood before, but seeing Nan Xing made her feel a lot better.

That sensation was similar to what one would experience when meeting an old friend. Since she could talk to Nan Xing about anything without worrying about the consequences, she decided to rant about Nan Chen.

After playing with the kids for a bit and tucking them in, Ning Ran finally had the chance to speak to Nan Xing in private. “Is the filming process tough? I heard Erbao is doing quite well!”

“She is indeed doing well. In fact, she’s doing so well that I’m a little bit worried. She might become a lot more popular than me once this movie is released!” Ning Ran replied with a chuckle.

“Who did you go dining with tonight? You seemed to be in a bad mood when you came back earlier.” Because Nan Xing was highly observant, he noticed something was off about Ning Ran as soon as she walked through the door.

Ning Ran simply let out a helpless sigh in response. “What’s the matter? Has someone been bullying you?” Nan Xing asked. Ning Ran had wanted to rant about Nan Chen at first but changed her mind at the very last second.

Nan Xing and I may be close friends, but Nan Chen is his older brother. It doesn’t seem appropriate to badmouth Nan Chen in front of him.

“Come on, tell me what happened! It’s that director, isn’t it? He must’ve been bullying you or something!” Nan Xing was getting anxious. “Of course not! He wouldn’t dare bully me!”

“Who was it, then? Tell me, and I’ll go teach them a lesson! I don’t care who they think they are! No one bullies you and gets away with it!” Nan Xing urged her, but Ning Ran refused to tell him anything.

After pacing around anxiously for a bit, Nan Xing came up with an idea and said, “I know! I’ll ask Qiao Zhan about this! He’s in charge of protecting you, so he should know what happened. If he doesn’t, then he’ll be the first person to feel my wrath!”

Ning Ran was quick to stop him. “He doesn’t know anything, so don’t even bother asking him.”

“Then tell me who did it! If you won’t tell me, I’ll drop by the set tomorrow and question that director myself. If he doesn’t tell me what I want to know, I’ll have Qiao Zhan beat the living daylights out of him!” Nan Xing yelled angrily.

“Hey, you’d better not cause any trouble! The production team has nothing to do with this!”

“Just tell me who did this, Ning Ran! Give me a name! Even if I can’t handle it, I could just go to my brother for help!”

“Don’t mention him!”

Nan Xing was so shocked by Ning Ran’s sudden outburst that he just stood there staring at her in silence for a few seconds. “You got into a fight with my brother? Is that what happened?”

“I didn’t get into a fight with him! He just did something really shameless, that’s all!” Ning Ran shouted angrily.

Nan Xing froze.

Chen? Shameless? Those are two words you’d never see in the same sentence! If anything, Chen’s ego is bigger than anything else in the world!

“W-What did he do?”

“It’s too embarrassing for me to say it, so stop asking!”

“Oh, come on! You two have been through countless life-and-death situations, and yet, your relationship has remained strong all this while! Why would you two get into a fight all of a sudden? Look, just tell me what Chen did, and I’ll apologize on his behalf if he truly is in the wrong,” Nan Xing said.

“No. It’s too embarrassing for me to talk about it.”

“I’m family, so there’s no need to be embarrassed. Tell me what this is all about, or I’ll call Chen and ask him myself.”

“You know what? You should do that,” Ning Ran replied and went back to her room.

Nan Chen had just finished working overtime and was heading back to Commoner Residence when he got a call from Nan Xing. “What is it?”

Nan Xing got straight to the point and asked, “What happened between you and Ning Ran? Why does she keep calling you shameless?”

Nan Chen frowned upon hearing that. Is there no end to this woman’s shenanigans?

“Just ignore her. I don’t have time to explain it to you,” Nan Chen replied and hung up the phone immediately after.

Nan Xing tried calling him again, but Nan Chen ignored his call.

He was really busy and didn’t have time to deal with Nan Xing’s questions.

Upon arriving at Commoner Residence, Nan Chen went straight to see Nan Zhengde in his study room.

Nan Zhengde had been suffering from insomnia lately, so he was still awake even though it was really late.

He took off his glasses and motioned for Nan Chen to sit down when he saw him come in.

“Have you been working overtime until now? You must be tired, huh?”

“I’m all right. It’s not too tiring. Anyway, I’ll keep this brief so you can get some rest soon,” Nan Chen replied while stretching his shoulders a little.

He then told Nan Zhengde all about the Serenity Street project in the old town.

“I completely agree with your conclusion. It is indeed Green Beauty that we need to watch out for. However, this isn’t a major project, so you could just make the decision on your own. Why would you need to discuss it with me?” Nan Zhengde said after giving it some thought.

“Well, this project is capable of affecting the development of Nanshi Corporation. Anyway, I have a feeling that there is more to this than meets the eye.”

“Are you referring to the alliance between the Ouyang family and the Rong family?”

“Yes. While Nanshi Corporation is capable of competing against them, the situation is not looking good for us. We will be put in a tough spot if they team up and attack us in every sector.”

Nan Zhengde stared at him in silence for a brief moment before replying, “Chen, you’ve never been one to surrender. You’re a lot stronger than this.”

“I don’t intend on surrendering, but the incident with Ouyang Duo has taught me a valuable lesson. I am not invincible, so I should never underestimate any of my opponents. I only survived the car accident because I got lucky. I let my guard down before, but that won’t happen again,” Nan Chen said.

Nan Zhengde nodded. “I’m glad you see it that way. This is a sign of maturity.”

“We need to strike first and strike hard before they begin their attack. Otherwise, we’ll be forced into a disadvantageous and vulnerable position.”

“What do you plan on doing?” Nan Zhengde asked.

“I don’t think the alliance between the Ouyang family and the Rong family was a recent thing. They must’ve planned it long ago. I plan to identify the foundation of their alliance and find out how strong their bond is.”

“Did you manage to find anything?”

“I need your help, Grandpa.”

“What do you need me to do?”

“I need you to tell me about the grudge between our family and the Ouyang family. It has been so many years now, Grandpa. Why won’t you tell me the truth?”

“That happened way too long ago, so I don’t really remember much. Just do what you believe is right, Chen. I’m not about to waste my time and energy recalling the past, so let’s leave it at that,” Nan Zhengde said as he stood up.

Grandpa still won’t talk about it… He’d always stop whenever he gets to the important parts of the topic. I don’t understand why he refuses to talk about it. They’re our enemies, so what’s keeping him from talking about them?
