When he heard Xia Wanqiu’s father say this, Lin Fan’s heart was as clear as a mirror and he immediately understood.
He would not be judged on whether he could earn money.
This was because in Xia Wanqiu’s father’s eyes, no matter how much Lin Fan earned, his ceiling as an ordinary celebrity was limited.
Even if he filmed ten television dramas a year and each of them earned him tens of millions. It would only add up to a few hundred million.
In reality, he could not film ten television dramas in a year.
However, a big boss with tens of billions of assets could easily earn hundreds of millions a year.
In the eyes of a true big boss, a mere 100 million was a small goal.
Some big shots were not interested in money at all.
Look, were these things that a human could say?
Since ancient times, one could judge a person’s capability by their ability to earn money.
Just like the college entrance examination results, this was the standard for the officials to judge countless students.
The more money one earned, the better his living conditions would be.
As for character, Lin Fan believed in himself.
The cat liked him because of his inner self.
To be able to obtain Xia Wanqiu’s father’s approval, Lin Fan had to be ambitious. He couldn’t live like a salted fish collecting rent.
At the end of the day, he still had to earn money.
Think about it. If you said that you were an executive of QQ and earned 20 million a year when you went to see your father-in-law in the future, would the effect be the same as saying that you were carrying bricks at a construction site?
After thinking for a few seconds, Lin Fan said on the phone, “Uncle Xia, don’t worry. I’ll definitely work hard to improve myself and film more outstanding works. With me around, no one in the entertainment industry will be able to bully Wanqiu. I’ll use everything I have to protect her.”
This was the attitude Lin Fan had to display.
Hearing Lin Fan say that, Xia Wanqiu smiled.
With Lin Fan around, she was really at ease.
This was a happiness that came from the bottom of her heart.
When she was with the person she liked, she felt fearless.
Xia Wanqiu’s father said, “Everyone will say that. What I want to see is action. Lin Fan, I hope that half a year later, you won’t disappoint me. Otherwise, no matter how much Wanqiu likes you, I will make her break up with you.”
Lin Fan smiled calmly. “Don’t worry, Uncle Xia. Let’s meet again in half a year. I heard that you know how to play Chinese chess. Coincidentally, I know a little too.”
Xia Wanqiu’s father laughed and said, “That’s good. In half a year, come and play a game of Chinese chess with me. If you can win against me, I’ll allow you to marry Wanqiu.”
When Xia Wanqiu heard this, she was angry. “Dad, is this how you sell your daughter?”
Initially, Lin Fan and Xia Wanqiu’s father were quite serious. He even wanted to test Lin Fan half a year later.
However, when it came to Chinese chess, Xia Wanqiu’s father immediately changed.
No assessment could compare to winning a game of Chinese chess against Xia Wanqiu’s father.
After Xia Wanqiu’s father heard that, he said, “Qiuqiu, you’re the one who likes him. Why are you saying that I sold my daughter? Now, someone has finally accepted my daughter. I hope that he can perform better in half a year. Don’t disappoint me. I don’t have high expectations for my future son-in-law. He just needs to play 300 rounds of Chinese chess with me.”
When Xia Wanqiu heard that, she was even angrier. “Fierce! I’m not talking to you anymore. How can you bully Lin Fan like that?”
Xia Wanqiu’s father frowned. “Qiuqiu, you’re wrong. How can this be called bullying him?”
Xia Wanqiu said aggrievedly, “You’re already playing Chinese chess with each other, and you still say that you won’t bully him. You just want your daughter to be unable to get married.”
Xia Wanqiu’s father continued, “My daughter hasn’t even gotten married yet and she’s already on Lin Fan’s side. What will happen if she gets married in the future?”
“Alright, alright. I still have something to do. I’ll hang up first.”
“By the way, hurry up and film the second season of Joy of Life and the next seasons of the Legend of Sword and Fairy. I’m still waiting to watch dramas.” After Xia Wanqiu’s father said that, he hung up.
Xia Wanqiu looked at Lin Fan and lowered her head. “In the future, I might not be able to marry you. My dad is super good at Chinese chess. He’s at the Professional Rank 9 and equivalent to a professional Chinese chess player.”
Lin Fan smiled brightly and held Xia Wanqiu’s hand. “Don’t be afraid. I can also learn Chinese chess. When the time comes, I’ll fight your father for 300 rounds.”
Xia Wanqiu’s beautiful eyes lit up. She looked at Lin Fan and nodded gently.
How could she not know her father?
As long as she could bring him home, it meant that he had won.
Lin Fan’s performance wasn’t too bad. Her father would agree no matter what.
Lin Fan heaved a sigh of relief.
At first, he really thought that Xia Wanqiu’s father wanted them to break up.
Xia Wanqiu’s father was not a bad person.
Lin Fan had already decided that no matter what, he had to continue improving in the entertainment industry.
First, it was for his wife and the assessment half a year later.
Secondly, Lin Fan had so many viewers who wanted to see the second season of “Joy of Life” and the sequels to “The Legend of Sword and Fairy”.
He was also responsible for the audience.
Most importantly, it was a pleasure to be able to film with Xia Wanqiu.
If he left the entertainment industry and became a big boss who collected rent and slacked peacefully, who would Xia Wanqiu film a kissing scene with in the future? Who would she film a relationship scene with?
With someone else? Of course not.
How could Lin Fan tolerate his cat filming a relationship scene with someone else and saying that she liked him?
“Lin Fan, we might not be able to see each other again this month,” Xia Wanqiu looked at Lin Fan and said.
“Why?” Lin Fan asked.
“I’m going to shoot an endorsement deal. I still have to fly to Paris. Chanel and LV asked me to shoot an endorsement deal with them. My photos will appear in various cities around the world, so it’ll take a long time to shoot. This event is very big,” Xia Wanqiu said.
“Then I won’t be able to see you for a long time,” said Lin Fan.
He helped Xia Wanqiu find a few endorsements. What kind of companies were LV and Chanel? Endorsement deals did not just entail taking a few photos.
Xia Wanqiu would appear in various magazines, newspapers, the Internet, as well as LV and Chanel products.
LV’s products were not only bags, and Chanel’s products were not just perfume. The two luxury companies were targeted at many industries, such as handbags, travel goods, small leather tools, accessories, shoes, ready-made clothes, wristwatches, high-end jewelry, and so on.
What Xia Wanqiu had to do was to endorse all the products.
After this endorsement, Xia Wanqiu’s popularity would rise exponentially!
Therefore, in this month, she couldn’t see Lin Fan or film the second season of “Joy of Life” and the third season of “The Legend of Sword and Fairy”.
“Mmm, you can’t see me anymore,” Xia Wanqiu said.
“It’s fine. When the time comes, we’ll video call at night. I’ll send you all the photos and videos I took. You can also change the wallpaper on your computer desktop,” Xia Wanqiu said.
“Then can you take a photo of yourself wearing shorts and revealing your shoulders? I’ll set it as my desktop wallpaper.” Lin Fan leaned forward and asked. After all, he couldn’t get enough of his wife. He wasn’t a pervert. Wasn’t it normal for him to be interested in his girlfriend? Lin Fan wouldn’t take another look at other girls.
“Mmm ~ Okay.” Xia Wanqiu nodded.
“I still have a lot of private photos. The kind that can’t be uploaded online. I’ll send them all to you ~”
“I have photos of myself wearing bathrobes, JK uniforms, and photos of myself in my underwear… as well as photos of myself in bikinis while swimming in my house’s pool. You can set them all as wallpapers, but I know you won’t show it to others.” Xia Wanqiu’s face was slightly red. She also knew that Lin Fan would never be stupid enough to share private photos of his girlfriend with others.
When Lin Fan heard that, he looked at Xia Wanqiu. He was a little happy but also a little pained.
In the future… how could he fall asleep at night?!
