They had just seen Li Shanshan in the morning and did not expect to see her at dinner too. Fate was such an interesting thing.
Judging from the non-stop screams from outside, Li Shanshan sounded like she was in misery.
Fu Yao looked at Xia Ning and said in a low voice, “Sister Xia Ning, should we go out and take a look?”
Wen Jing agreed immediately. “Hearing the noise just now, I think Li Shanshan is in misery. Let’s go check out the ending for a bad person.”
Li Shanshan and Zheng Haodong smiled. Seems like all the girls bore a grudge. But Li Shanshan had it coming.
“We are almost done. Once we are done, we will leave. Are you staying to watch? Are you not coming back with us?” Xia Ning said to the two.
Wen Jing heard her and felt a bit sorry. She continued, “That’s fine. I will go back with Sister Xia Ning. There’s nothing to be seen. If I see it, I will probably have a bad dream tonight.”
Fu Yao was a bit not reconciled. “It’s just outside. It won’t take that much time.”
Xia Ning did not speak and sipped some tea.
Lu Chuan darted a look at Fu Yao and frowned. He said to Xia Ning, “I heard Director Zeng has decided that you will be the female lead for his next movie. I haven’t congratulated you yet.”
“Really, Sister Xia Ning?” Wen Jing screamed with surprise. Her face was filled with happiness. “Sister Xia Ning, you have to get a ‘Movie Queen’ back this time.”
Zheng Haodong looked at Xia Ning and agreed. “If you get picked by Director Zeng, you are one step closer to the trophy. Xia Ning, congrats!”
Fu Yao followed, “Sister Xia Ning debuted not long ago, and got Best Newcomer Award. Now you will be starring in Director Zeng’s movie. It won’t be a question that you will get a ‘Movie Queen’.”
Xia Ning smiled. “That was overstated. But I do hope I will be able to do that with all of your blessings.”
She smiled very naturally. Anyone who acted in Director Zeng’s movie was there for a trophy and some fame. And she really needed a trophy for the Movie Queen.
They did not notice when the noise outside went away.
They were almost done and Xia Ning paid the bill first, leaving no chance for Zheng Haodong and Lu Chuan.
They walked out of the private room. There were some waiters in the hallway but no Li Shanshan. They walked towards the outside.
Around the corner, some whispers came, “Li Shanshan is living such a miserable life. I saw her drinking until she spit out blood just now. And they still pressured her to drink. They were playing with her life.”
“She had it coming. When she was famous, she was super arrogant. She picked and chose who she accompanied. Now she’s nothing and those guys got a chance to humiliate her.”
“After all, she’s really stupid for wanting to get involved with President Qiao from Shengshi Group. She must be crazy.”
“I heard President Qiao ordered to ban her himself. He must really be disgusted by her!”
“I thought something was weird though. Think about it. President Qiao helped Xia Ning so much indirectly. Why is no one talking about President Qiao and Xia Ning?”
“Are you stupid? Li Shanshan is not clean so how clean can Xia Ning be? President Qiao did not like Li Shanshan and certainly won’t like Xia Ning!”
Xia Ning walked past the corner and did not stop at all, as if she did not hear them.
Seeing someone passing by, the two waiters stopped talking. They saw a figure going past their eyes.
Wen Jing was very upset. She said to the two with anger, “What nonsense are you talking about? Say one more word and I will destroy your mouths.”
The faces of the two changed and they lowered their heads and did not dare to say anymore.
Fu Yao did not want this to go crazy. She pulled Wen Jing towards the outside. Zheng Haodong and Lu Chuan glanced over at the two waiters coldly and followed them.
Noticing everyone was gone, the two finally felt relieved.
One of them said, “Was that Xia Ning just now?”
“Looks like her. Zheng Haodong and Lu Chuan were behind her. I heard they were shooting the same TV show in J City!”
“We’re done. Xia Ning must have heard our words.”
“What are you afraid of? If she did it, she can’t stop people from talking about it!”
