“Ms. Xue, I don’t understand. You’re an excellent violinist, why do you need a substitute?” Xu Xiyan asked.
Somewhere along the way, Xue Yating had, without realizing it herself, started thinking of Xu Xiyan as a good friend. She waved her right hand as she explained, “I don’t want to do this either, to be honest. But I injured my wrist ligament during the car accident.”
“You injured your hand?”
Xu Xiyan knew very well that a hand injury was no laughing matter: it was enough to destroy the career of a violinist.
“Yeah. According to my doctor, it’ll take a year for me to recover. He says I’m not allowed to touch the violin for the next 12 months.”
“And that’s why you’re looking for someone to stand in for you in the meantime?”
“That’s right. I don’t want to put my career on hold, and I don’t want to let my fans down, either.”
Xue Yating’s career had just reached new heights. She did not want to give up on it while she spent a year recuperating.
Her schedule was packed with concerts. If she hit the Pause button on her career now, she might never get the chance to perform on stage again.

Xue Yating had heard Xu Xiyan play the violin, and knew that she was an excellent violinist. Aside from that, the two of them were of a similar height and body shape. Xue Yating was confident no one would realize it was actually Xu Xiyan up on the stage once the actress disguised herself with makeup.
“I can disguise myself as you, but…”
Xu Xiyan hesitated. She wasn’t particularly close to Xue Yating, but that didn’t mean she was okay with the thought of accidentally ruining her career.
Xue Yating continued to persuade her. “If you say yes to this, I’ll give you half of my earnings for each show. That’s quite a lot of money, you know. Are you sure you want to give up such a wonderful opportunity to make money?”
Xue Yating wasn’t exaggerating; it was, in fact, a lot of money. Xue Yating took home hundreds of thousands Yuan for every concert. Some concerts netted her over a million yuan. If they split the money 50-50, Xu Xiyan would receive a considerable amount of money for each performance.
