Accidental Like

A script slapped onto the table!

“Accident, accident, another accident! My da xiao jie*, can you please use an alternative account next time you go on Weibo*?!”

da xiao jie – literally means the eldest daughter of a rich or privileged household but can also be used, such as in this context, to mean a spoilt rich girl

Weibo – chinese microblogging website, similar to twitter or facebook

Liu jie* massaged her temples in frustration, chest heaving with anger, “Count how many times it’s been yourself! You’re lucky that this time it’s only Zhu Qinqin, if it was someone like Mu Yao, you’d be dissed to death!”

A girl with long wavy hair sat on the brown sofa.
She glanced at the script on the table, then at the slightly calmer Liu jie.
She frowned, but kept silent.

“It doesn’t matter, that Zhu Qinqin is about your level anyway.
The company will buy a water army* to control the comments, you don’t have to worry about it.”

water army – a group of internet ghostwriters paid to post online comments with particular content, these paid posters can post news, comments, gossip, disinformation on online platforms

As she spoke, Liu jie walked into the kitchen and poured herself a glass of water, then continued, “You shouldn’t just play games all day either.
Although acting talent isn’t the most important thing in the entertainment industry, you can’t be too bad either.
Otherwise, no matter how many resources your sister puts in to make you popular, you still won’t be able to get a role with the really famous directors.”

She walked back slowly with the glass in her hand and looked at Su Shen, “I hired a teacher from the Central Academy of Drama for you.
You should do some last minute cramming.
You’re joining the set in a few days, don’t mess things up.
Your sister invested a lot of money for you to get this opportunity.
Otherwise with your position in the industry, it would take you years to even think about this role!”

After listening to her rant, Su Shen glanced around but didn’t speak.

Liu jie saw she was being ignored and placed her glass of water roughly down on the table, “Don’t think I’m joking around with you.
Director Huang has a bad temper and your acting is too bad.
He won’t care if your relative is an investor.”

In response, the girl on the sofa finally moved.
She pulled her hair back and tied it with a rubber band taken from the table, then casually replied: “I don’t need a teacher.”

Her words made Liu jie so angry, she almost laughed, “Yes, the entertainment industry is where you earn money off youth, but there are so many rookies coming out every day.
If you don’t have the ability, you could be obsolete tomorrow!”

“I’ve only acted in two dramas, how do you know I don’t have the ability?” Su Shen looked up at Liu jie.

Her gaze suddenly seemed strange, off-putting, and Liu jie frowned, then sat down on the other side of the sofa.
She picked up the script and flipped to a page, then passed it to Su Shen.

“Okay, then this scene, let me see your ability.” Liu jie arched her brow, disbelieving.

Su Shen took the script and glanced at the contents.
After a few moments, she suddenly sat up straight, her lips pressed together, the tips of her eyelashes slightly trembling.
Her bright eyes glazed over, slightly red.

Liu jie was about to speak, then saw Su Shen’s eyelashes flutter, and two pearl-like tears slowly fell from the corners of her eyes.
Soon, they rolled down to her jaw, and Su Shen looked at her, eyes speaking through her tears.

The living room quietened, and Liu jie hastily pulled a tissue out for her, “You’re not bad!”

Su Shen calmly wiped her face with the tissue, then sat back onto the sofa.

“But your acting was terrible in your first two dramas, have you been honing on your acting skills recently?” Even as she said it, Liu jie thought it was impossible.
How could Su Shen, who had to use eye drops for her crying scenes before, shed tears in under three seconds now?!

“All the characters you gave me were silly sweet girls, was any acting skill needed?” Su Shen sat cross-legged on the sofa and turned her attention to her phone.

Liu jie wanted to keep talking, but a call came in and she could only get her bag ready to leave.
“Remember what I told you, don’t pay any attention to what’s going on online.
Also, you should still at least go see the teacher I hired for you, Director Huang has high standards for acting!”

She then took a call and left, apparently there’s some urgent business.

When the only person left in the large apartment was herself, Su Shen suddenly stood and walked to the window, then pulled open the curtains.
The residential area’s expansive greenbelt appeared before her eyes.
She glanced up at the sunless sky, took a deep breath, then turned and closed the curtains.

Su Shen couldn’t understand why or how she had come to this bizarre world, and didn’t know how she became this body’s owner, and even inherited all her memories.

Yes, her consciousness was originally from a concubine’s daughter in the household of the prime minister of the Xuan Dynasty.
That place had been like this entertainment industry, everybody wanted to climb to a better position regardless of the means necessary.
Nobody wanted to be looked down on for the rest of their lives, but where she was from, if they didn’t fight for it, their fate would be even worse than death.

She learnt the four arts* (zither, Go, calligraphy, painting) and worked hard to make sure her name would spread throughout the capital city.
After all her efforts, she finally married the Crown Prince as a consort, but on their marriage night, the rites hadn’t even finished when a group of assassins broke in.
The Crown Prince knew martial arts, and was unharmed, but she had been mistakenly killed.
Then, she opened her eyes in this strange world.

Actually, there was nothing to pity or regret.
Her birth mother had d
