Chen Shiyan’s smile on her face froze. Asking her to leave in two days? How did it become like this?


Seeing Qiao Yu’s cruel face, she felt a bit cold in her heart and did not even dare to refute.


That night, he looked at her with the same cold eyes when she was forced to drink. Yes, he was just sitting there watching. She should have known why those arrogant young masters had to drink to death the other day. It was all because this man’s majesty could not be offended.


Chen Shiyan moved the corner of her lips and tried hard to keep the smile. “Yes, President Qiao. I will… go, go get ready.” She moved her stiff body and turned around to leave.


The reason why she could go further than Li Shanshan was because she could read what was going on. Since she was on President Qiao’s blacklist, she would naturally avoid him from now on, even though she did not want to give up in her heart.


Qiao Yu took his gaze back and opened the script to read again.


Director Li turned around suddenly and said to him, “I thought you would ask her to leave directly.”


Qiao Yu darted a look at him and frowned. “Just being considerate of the progress.”


Director Li nodded. He was right. It would delay them further if they were to change her.


“Looks like you are in a good mood recently. How are things going?” Director Li asked all of a sudden.


Qiao Yu heard that and looked relaxed. “Not bad,” he answered calmly.


Director Li nodded. “I hope it’s not your delusion.”


Qiao Yu: “…” Could he hope for something better?


Xia Ning was sitting in the rest area and looking at the afternoon tea from Wen Jing. She frowned. “Why is there food again?”


“President Qiao brought these for everyone.” Wen Jing took a small cake from it and handed it to Xia Ning.


Xia Ning took a look and said calmly, “I’m worried about my weight. You should eat it.”


“Sister Xia Ning, you are not even that heavy. And you’ve lost some weight from the film shooting!” Wen Jing looked at Xia Ning with a serious face.


“I just want to lose some weight. Take it.”


Wen Jing knew Xia Ning did not like sweets, so she did not force it and started eating the cake herself. She looked at Chen Shiyan who was filming in the scene and said suddenly, “Somehow, Chen Shiyan offended President Qiao and President Qiao asked her to finish her parts in two days.”


Xia Ning raised her eyebrows slightly and a certain emotion flew through her eyes.


It was mostly Chen Shiyan’s parts in the afternoon so Xia Ning decided to leave early.


But before she could leave the set, her phone rang. She took a look at the screen and frowned. She turned around and saw the tall man not too far away.


He was looking back at her with the phone next to his ear. He was gesturing her to pick up.


“Sister Xia Ning, why don’t you pick up?” Wen Jing looked at Xia Ning with confusion.


Xia Ning said calmly, “It’s from a strange number. Must be a wrong number.” As she spoke, she hung up directly and moved forward.


But she didn’t walk too far before the phone rang again. She hung up and it rang again.


Wen Jing could not help but say to Xia Ning, “Sister Xia Ning, why don’t you answer it? Maybe this person has something urgent.”


Xia Ning darted a look at Wen Jing. Girl, are you that naive?


Under Wen Jing’s eyes, Xia Ning picked up the call helplessly. “What’s the matter?”


Hearing Qiao Yu explaining that he did not come for Chen Shiyan today, Xia Ning sneered. “I don’t think it’s necessary for you to tell me this kind of stuff.”


“I just wanted to tell you, I’m not the compassionate type who would help a strange woman.” A man’s voice came from behind suddenly.


Xia Ning moved the phone away from her ear and turned around to look at the man who had just shown up out of the blue with a shocked face.
