Ashen faced, Qiao Yiyi demanded, “What did you just say?”
The director frowned and was about to speak, when Shi Xun interrupted expressionlessly, “Did Lu Nanze really recommend such an ignorant actress? What is their relationship?”
Qiao Yiyi’s expression changed at once when she heard Shi Xun’s remark.
The director was stunned as well.
All this time, everyone had thought that Lu Nanze was backing Qiao Yiyi.
However previously, Lu Nanze had given Qiao Yiyi a tight slap. Given that, it didn’t really seem as though she was that precious to him at all, hence…
The director looked at her.
In fact, the whole crew had been tired of her for a long time!
And now, Shi Xun’s disregard for her caused everyone to suddenly realize that he was right. Even if Qiao Yiyi had been recommended by Mr. Lu, ever since that previous incident, Mr. Lu had not come to see her.
Instantly, everyone turned to Qiao Yiyi with looks of suspicion and doubt in their eyes.
Qiao Yiyi clenched her fists with anger and insisted, “Of course I know Second Brother. We grew up together and were childhood sweethearts. We both—”
Before she could finish, Shi Xun interrupted, “Of course, you can say anything you want. If it’s true, why don’t you get Lu Nanze to come over?”
In any case, Shi Xun wanted like to ask Lu Nanze how was it that this woman was bullying his very own sister!
Qiao Yiyi bit her lip and said, “Fine. I will ask Second Brother to come over and meet with you, Mr. Shi!”
After saying these words, she turned around and walked away.
The director turned and smiled at Shi Xun, asking, “Mr. Shi, would you like me to show you around?”
Shi Xun’s expression was icy and he replied, “Don’t you have things to do? It seems like all of you in the filming crew have a lot of free time.”
The director immediately felt anxious.
Shi Xun now turned towards Shi Nianyao and said, “She can show me around. The rest of you, go continue with what you’re supposed to be doing.”
Shi Nianyao and Shi Xun walked together. Seeing that there was no one around, Shi Nianyao stuck her tongue out at Shi Xun and said, “Brother, you were quite fierce back there.”
He replied with little expression, “And you just let her bully you like that?
Shi Nianyao chuckled and did not speak.
He looked at his sister and reached out to ruffle her hair affectionately.
Yet at this point, Mo Xicheng was approaching them. He had heard that the investor was coming, hence, as the male lead he wanted to greet Shi Xun.
He was a short distance from them and clearly saw Shi Xun’s gesture with Shi Nianyao.
Obviously, the man showed his affection and how he pampered her.
And the woman was mischievous and adorable.
Suddenly, Mo Xicheng had a sinking feeling in his heart.
Qiao Yiyi had been reprimanded and asked to leave. To say the least, she was thoroughly embarrassed.
Now, the only person who could help restore her dignity was her Second Brother.
But ever since the incident involving Qiao Lian, when Second Brother had tightly slapped her, he had not turned up at the filming location.
She knew that Qiao Lian was the apple of her Second Brother’s eye, and no one was to hurt her. Because she had made fun of Qiao Lian, Second Brother had been of course angry.
She did not dare to call Second Brother. Holding the cell phone in her hand, she hesitated for a long time. Then she recalled something. Biting her lip, she made a call to his secretary.
The line was connected very quickly.
Qiao Yiyi asked, “Is Second Brother around?”
Politely, the secretary replied, “Ms. Qiao, did he not tell you? He’s gone away for a business trip.”
Qiao Yiyi was stunned and her heart sank. She asked, “Where has he gone?”
