“I think it is possible.
“You Si Zheng suddenly joined the conversation between them.

    Only Qiu Xue Er stared at the doorway expectantly, wanting to know who would come in.

    Yan Zhou Ming glanced at You Si Zheng and shook his head, “It can't be Xiao Hua jie, she’s still in R Country right now.”

    Nie Zhen'er stated in distress, “Then I really can't guess who.”

    You Si Zheng's focus was different from that of Nie Zhen'er.
He asked in interest, “Teacher Yan, are you familiar with Teacher Zhang Xiao Hua?”

    Nie Zhen'er thought You Si Zheng was a bit dense and replied for Yan Zhou Ming, “The film that Teacher Yan won the award for was made with Teacher Zhang Xiao Hua.”

    You Si Zheng scratched his head awkwardly, “I don't really like watching movies.”

    When the director finished speaking, he returned back behind the cameramen.
They stood under the sun and waited for the last mysterious guest’s arrival.

    “Ah, someone is coming!” Qiu Xue Er exclaimed excitedly.

    Although Nie Zhen'er didn't care who came, she also showed curiosity and anticipation in front of the camera.

    Since You Si Zheng hasn’t recovered from the screwup just now, he lowered his head in annoyance and didn’t speak.
He couldn't pick up his spirit even when he heard Qiu Xue Er's voice.

    Only Yan Zhou Ming was unmoved and had the demeanor of a film king.

    As the unhurried footsteps drew near, the mysterious guest walked up to the courtyard door and reached out to knock on the door.
Who knows if he or she knocked too hard, the door actually opened slowly.

    The tall figure of the woman outside the door caught everyone off guard.

    Everyone’s faces were surprised because they didn't know Luan Qing Xiao at all, while Nie Zhen'er, the only guest who knew Luan Qing Xiao, was even more surprised.

    She never thought that the last mysterious guest would be Luan Qing Xiao.

    Luan Qing Xiao wasn’t an actor.
Although she is a promising young woman and serves as the CEO of Hong Ye Group, photos of her have never been circulated unlike those rich second generations who flaunt their wealth on Weibo and become well-known figures.

    If she said Luan Qing Xiao didn’t join this show for her, Nie Zhen'er didn't believe it.

    Seeing that the door opened by itself, Luan Qing Xiao graciously stepped in, carrying her suitcase, “Hello everyone, my name is Luan Qing Xiao and I am a normal person.” Luan Qing Xiao introduced with a faint expression.

    Qiu Xue Er came back to her senses and was the first one to reach out to Luan Qing Xiao, “Hello, my name is Qiu Xue Er.”

    Luan Qing Xiao stretched out her hand and gently shook hers.

    Qiu Xue Er looked at Luan Qing Xiao enviously, “Qing Xiao, you’re so tall.”

    “I would prefer to be shorter.
Your performance in [Girl Group 101] is excellent, I’ll be expecting more from you in your future.”

    Luan Qing Xiao was 1.75 meters and among the other four people present, Nie Zhen'er was 1.65 meters, Qiu Xue Er was 1.66 meters, You Si Zheng was 1.86 meters, and Yan Zhou Ming was 1.83 meters.
Compared to the two girls, Luan Qing Xiao was indeed quite tall.
In terms of visual effects, just Luan Qing Xiao standing there alone gave people the illusion that she is about the same height as Yan Zhou Ming.

    The people present didn't expect that the person coming was to be a completely normal person.
They thought it might have been a relative of the boss or the investor.

    You Si Zheng and Qiu Xue Er thought that Luan Qing Xiao must have come for Yan Zhou Ming.
Being able to chase your celebrity here simply makes you a winner in life!

    In short, Luan Qing Xiao's background isn’t simple.
As long as she doesn't do anything extreme for the next twenty days, she definitely can’t be offended.

    Once Luan Qing Xiao and Qiu Xue Er finished shaking hands, she glanced at Nie Zhen'er faintly and walked to her, “Hello, I enjoyed watching 《Starry Sky and Heart》 very much.”

    “Thank you.” Nie Zhen'er raised her hand and pinned her hair behind her ears, smiling at Luan Qing Xiao with clear eyes.

    Next up was You Si Zheng.
His external image has always been a bright outgoing boy.
His “slip of tongue” just now kept him feeling guilty.
When he shook hands with Luan Qing Xiao, his eyes were a little dark and melancholy, “We welcome you, Qing Xiao.”

    “Thank you.
Your group’s new album sounds great, I like《Xue Ye》the most.”

    Qiu Xue Er walked to Nie Zhen'er and hooked her arm, whispering in her ear, “Zhen'er, Qing Xiao’s and Si Zheng’s heights are so compatible.”

    Nie Zhen'er took a glance, furrowing her brows, “Really? For me, the two’s temperament doesn't fit well together.
I don’t sense any CP feelings between them.”

    Qiu Xue Er thought about it, “You’re right, I can't just look at the heights.”

    Finally, Luan Qing Xiao arrived in front of Yan Zhou Ming.
Her eyes were the same as before, and didn’t show a fanatical affection for Yan Zhou Ming as You Si Zheng and Qiu Xue Er had guessed.

    “Film King Yan, your performance in 《Ru Zheng》was wonderful.”

    “Thank you.” Yan Zhou Ming replied, “Qing Xiao seems pretty familiar with us, don't know what your occupation is?”

    Luan Qing Xiao spread her hands, “Just a hard-working laborer at a company.
This time I came to participate in [Return to the Garden] to give myself a vacation.”

    Yan Zhou Ming pondered Luan Qing Xiao's words in his heart and could roughly speculate Luan Qing Xiao's identity.

    From the ease Luan Qing Xiao got along with them, it can see that she has received a good family education.
Moveover when facing these celebrities, Luan Qing Xiao wasn’t nervous or cautious, her every move was gracious, which meant her family background should be rather well off.
Her saying just a hard-working laborer at a company probably refers to an above average position at either her own family’s or a relative’s company.

    In conclusion, Yan Zhou Ming can conclude Luan Qing Xiao is a rich girl with background.

    A light flashed through Yan Zhou's eyes.

    Ever since he won the Film King Award, he has yet been able to find a suitable script.
Luan Qing Xiao's family should have some ties in the entertainment circle.
If he forms a good relationship with her, it may be helpful to his career.

    Yan Zhou Ming has never doubted his personal charm.

    Perhaps compared to You Si Zheng, he isn’t as tall or handsome, but he has a masculine charisma that You Si Zheng doesn’t have.
The most admirable trait he had is his sensuous eyes.
When looking at a person, he’ll give the other person the impression of tender affection.

    After a day of meeting each other, exploring the rooms and climbing the mountain for more than half an hour with their luggage, all they wanted now was to just lay on the bed and rest.

    The male and female dormitories on the second floor both accommodate four people.
Once Qiu Xue Er entered the room, she said, “I prefer to sleep closer to the wall.
How about you guys?”

    Luan Qing Xiao didn't look at Nie Zhen'er and directly answered, “I’m fine with anything.”

    “Then I will choose the spot by the window.” Nie Zhen'er said.

    “Are you okay with that?” Both Nie Zhen'er and Qiu Xue Er turned toward Luan Qing Xiao.

    “Yeah.” The cameras in the female and male dormitories will be removed before they sleep at night.
Sleeping in the middle allows her to hug Nie Zhen’er when she can’t bear the suffering of love sickness out of Qiu Xue Er’s eyesight.

    Once the three decided their positions, they did some simple unpacking of their luggage before laying down on the bed to rest.

    “Do we have to cook lunch by ourselves?” Qiu Xue Er asked with her eyes closed.

    “Probably.” Nie Zhen'er secretly hooked Luan Qing Xiao's pinky with her pinky that was hidden inside the blanket.

    Luan Qing Xiao’s eyes popped open as she turned to look at Nie Zhen'er until she couldn't help but blush before saying, “Zhen'er probably knows how to cook.”

    “Enl, I can cook.” Nie Zhen'er wanted to retract her pinky, but Luan Qing Xiao had it hooked and she couldn't free herself.

    With the camera and Qiu Xue Er obstructing her, she didn’t dare to use too much force, so she could only let Luan Qing Xiao be.

    “Huh? How did Qing Xiao know? Did you guys know each other before?” Qiu Xue Er opened her eyes and looked at them in curiosity.

    However from her line of vision, she could only see Luan Qing Xiao's face as Nie Zhen'er was completely blocked by Luan Qing Xiao.

    Luan Qing Xiao said, “We met five years ago.
You probably haven't watched [Goodbye for Thirty Days].
Zhen'er and I met on that show.”

    “I've heard of this [Goodbye for Thirty Days], but I haven't watched it.
Once we finish recording [Returning to A Country Life], I’ll go back and watch it.”

    Qiu Xue Er then sighed, “You guys are so destined.”

    After resting for half an hour, the cameramen came up to inform them that it was time to start preparing lunch.

    The five people gathered on the first floor and first went to the kitchen to check what ingredients were available.

    “There are eggs and ketchup in the refrigerator, we can make egg rolls.” You Si Zheng suggested.

    “There isn’t a non-stick pan, it’s not easy to make with an iron pot.” Yan Zhou Ming has played the role of a chef, so he understands some simple cooking knowledge.

    “Oh.” You Si Zheng put the ketchup back, regretfully, “It seems we can only make scrambled eggs.”

    “Are there only two kinds of ingredients in the refrigerator?” Nie Zhen'er walked over to confirm, “I remember there should be something else.”

    Because she herself knew how to cook, she had looked inside the refrigerator when she first arrived.

    “Oh yeah, there is also a piece of tofu.
Because it was placed too far inside, I almost missed it.” You Si Zheng scratched his head and smiled.

    Luan Qing Xiao also found some bean sprouts in a large basin covered with a damp cloth by the stove.

    In the end, their ingredients include five eggs, a block of tofu, a basin full of bean sprouts and three carps.

    Qiu Xue Er went outside to find the director, “Director, why aren’t there any green vegetables in the ingredients?”

    The director said, “There’s a vegetable garden behind the house.
You guys can go there and search.”

    “Ah, we have to pick it ourselves.” Qiu Xue Er commented, “Director, you’re so cunning.
If I didn't come ask you, you probably wouldn't have told us that there was a vegetable garden in the backyard.”

    The director only smiled candidly.

    Qiu Xue Er didn't have time to continue bickering with the director and hurried inside to inform the group there was a vegetable garden.

    “Xue Er, ask the director what kinds of vegetables are in the vegetable garden.
It’ll be more efficient if we decide on what dishes we’ll cook first before harvesting them.” Luan Qing Xiao said.

    “Alright, I'll go and ask right away.”

    Qiu Xue Er quickly returned after running out, “The director said in the vegetable garden, there are lettuce, Facing Heaven Pepper, bell peppers, tomatoes, green onions, garlic, potatoes, Chinese cabbage, eggplants, cucumbers…
…In short, there are many, many kinds, enough to sustain us for 20 days.”

    Luan Qing Xiao nodded, “Now, let's determine who can cook.”

    “Those who know how to make a fire raise your hand.”

    You Si Zheng immediately raised his hand, “I have participated in the [Wilderness Survival Challenge], and I’m especially good at making fires.”

    “Those who know how to cook raise their hands.”

    Nie Zhen'er said, “I can cook.”

    “I know a little too.” Yan Zhou Ming piped in.

    “Okay, then Si Zheng is responsible for tending to the fire, Zhen'er and Zhou Ming are responsible for cooking.
It just so happens that we have two pots, Si Zheng, make sure to keep the fire going on for both.”

    “I promised to complete the task.” You Si Zheng saluted with his index and middle finger.

    “The two chefs can decide what to cook later, while Xue Er and I will go to the vegetable garden to pick the vegetables.”

    Unknowingly, Luan Qing Xiao became the leader of the five that even Film King Yan Zhou Ming had no objection to being under her command.
