Back in the hotel, Xia Ning threw her phone on the couch and threw herself onto the big bed.
She was very upset about Qiao Yu’s surprising action.
But he has already said that he was not there for her. If she minded that, it would seem like she still had feelings for him.
In any case, Xia Ning felt relieved after not seeing Qiao Yu on the set for a few days.
It was better that he was not here. Otherwise, there would be a lot of incidents on the set again.
After all, he was a big CEO. Why would he have time to be on the set every day?
Fu Yao was back from her leave and she apologized to Xia Ning the moment she got back to the set. “Sister Xia Ning, I’m so sorry. I didn’t ignore the calls on purpose.”
Xia Ning said calmly, “It was Lu Qing’s fault. I will talk to her later. It’s not your fault.”
Fu Yao heard that and said immediately, “Sister Xia Ning, don’t blame Sister Qing. She was being considerate of me too.”
Xia Ning nodded. “Sure. You just recovered and should be more careful.”
“Yes, thanks, Sister Xia Ning.” Fu Yao nodded quickly.
The scenes in the morning went smoothly. When it was lunchtime, Xia Ning noticed that the food for the week was not repeated and was very good.
“Did the show get more investment?”
Wen Jing walked over and said to Xia Ning with a smile, “Must be.”
“Director Li said we’ve been so busy shooting the show. So he decided to get some good food for us!” Wen Jing looked to the sky. “It must be because of President Qiao as well. Didn’t you notice that ever since President Qiao came, we’ve got morning deserts and afternoon tea? Now the food is getting better too. He is definitely our lucky charm.”
“…” Xia Ning darted a look at Wen Jing wordlessly. She would not believe it if someone said Wen Jing was not Qiao Yu’s fan. Even the food getting better was related to Qiao Yu. But since he was the investor, maybe this one could be on him.
Wen Jing handed the lunch box to Xia Ning. “Sister Xia Ning, you should eat more. You lost some weight! Later, Sister Qing would definitely not be happy about it.”
Xia Ning took the lunch box and smirked. “If she really cares about me, can she not get so many spicy foods when she eats with me next time?”
Wen Jing’s mouth twitched. That sounded a bit difficult.
In the afternoon, nobody knew what happened to Chen Shiyan as she was not really herself. The scene could not pass after a dozen NGs.
Director Li had to let everyone take a break. Xia Ning was kneeling on the ground, so she suffered the most with the continuing NGs by Chen Shiyan.
“Xia Ning, I’m so sorry. I didn’t mean it. I don’t know what happened to me today. It’s so hard to get back to myself.” Chen Shiyan walked to Xia Ning and apologized.
Xia Ning smiled. “Don’t worry. I can understand. Sister Shiyan, don’t be too pressured.”
Chen Shiyan nodded but was not looking too excited. They talked a bit and she went back to read the screenplay.
Lu Chuan walked over to say to Xia Ning, “Don’t you think Chen Shiyan is acting differently now compared to before?”
“What do you mean?” Xia Ning looked at Lu Chuan.
Lu Chuan frowned. “I can’t say it explicitly. But she is building the role in a very strong way that deviates from Noble Lady An’s personality. Director Li did not seem too happy about it as well, but Chen Shiyan insisted.”
Xia Ning looked at Lu Chuan and Lu Chuan looked back at her. The two exchanged looks but moved their eyes away.
“I saw Fu Yao apologizing to you just now. But she came back crying. What happened?” Xia Ning changed topics.
Lu Chuan heard that and frowned. “It was nothing. Maybe she thought I was still mad at her because of the scandal before.”
Xia Ning darted a look at him, with suspicion in her eyes.
Lu Chuan was a bit awkward. He put on a smile and did not continue.
Chen Shiyan NGed a couple more times and the scene eventually passed.
Director Li saw that Xia Ning was very tired and decided to end work earlier today.
Chen Shiyan walked to Xia Ning and said to her apologetically, “Xia Ning, I’m so sorry for today.”
Xia Ning said calmly, “It’s alright. Sister Shiyan, you didn’t want this either.”
“I’ve not done anything after being on the set for so long. I want to treat everyone tonight and you must come. There should be nothing going on for you at night anyway. If you don’t go, it means you are not forgiving me.” Chen Shiyan held Xia Ning’s hand with a sincere look.
Xia Ning raised her eyebrows slightly. Seeing Chen Shiyan’s beautiful face, she wanted to say no. But she could not find any reason to say no to her.
