The next morning, when Xia Ning went to the set, she finally did not see Qiao Yu anymore.
After yesterday, she believed he would not show up in front of her anymore.
Director Li saw that she did not look good and asked, “What happened to you? You don’t look well. Do you need a day off?”
The scenes for the next two days were mostly Chen Shiyan’s parts anyway.
Xia Ning shook her head. She just did not sleep well for one night. She had tried not sleeping for three days before and she was still fine.
“Director Li, I’m fine.”
Director Li nodded and darted a look at the empty seat next to him. He started to murmur to himself, “Who knows what happened to President Qiao? He had to go back to S City today. Ah, I wouldn’t be so bored if he were here.”
“He’s the CEO of a corporation. Why would he have time to come to the set all the time?” Xia Ning looked at Director Li and said calmly.
Director Li darted a look at Xia Ning as if he wanted to say something. But eventually, he did not.
The morning scenes were progressing relatively well. In the afternoon, Zheng Haodong was finally here.
“Xia Ning, you don’t look well today.” Zheng Haodong looked at Xia Ning sincerely.
Xia Ning smiled. “I’m fine.” She suddenly thought about the question Qiao Yu asked her yesterday, about whether she had fallen for Zheng Haodong or not. Who knew what his brain was made of, to come up with such a weird thought.
Chen Shiyan who just got off the scene walked over and said to Zheng Haodong, “Haodong you are so nice to Xia Ning. Every time you come to the set, you look for her first.”
The smiles on both Zheng Haodong and Xia Ning’s faces disappeared at once.
“I heard you are leaving the show tomorrow, Movie Queen Chen,” Zheng Haodong said suddenly. “I wish you a bright future.”
Chen Shiyan heard this and the smile on her face froze. Nobody else would know better than her what Zheng Haodong meant.
She was driven away from the show by President Qiao and there were so many negative comments about her. Her company was not taking any actions so what kind of future would she have? Just an empty title of Movie Queen. No one would buy it anymore.
“Mr. Zheng, you have yourself to worry about. I should really admire you who is still coming to the set so calmly.” Chen Shiyan sneered. “I hope Mr. Zheng will be happy like this forever.” She turned around and left when she finished these words.
Xia Ning heard that and frowned. She darted a look at Chen Shiyan and then turned around to Zheng Haodong. “Brother Zheng, are you running into some kind of trouble?”
Zheng Haodong’s eyes flashed and then he said with a smile, “Nope. All the problems are solved.”
“It’s nothing.” Xia Ning smiled slightly. “If you need any help, you have to tell me.”
Zheng Haodong looked at her and smiled back. “Thanks. I will definitely ask you for help if necessary.”
Zheng Haodong went straight to the changing room. Lu Chuan, on the other hand, walked to Xia Ning’s side when everyone was gone.
“Zheng Haodong looks different today. Seems like his problems were resolved.” Lu Chuan darted a look at the direction where Zheng Haodong left.
Xia Ning looked at him with confusion. “What was the matter?”
“Didn’t you hear? Someone reported his CD for plagiarism. It has been taken down from the headlines, so there might be some negotiation under the table,” Lu Chuan said in a low voice. “But there have been other gossips lately saying that he is under the wings of a fuerdai. Don’t look at me like this. I did not do this.”
Xia Ning darted a look at her. “I believe you!” But… Rumors don’t appear out of thin air.
Nevertheless, this was Zheng Haodong’s personal matter and had nothing to do with her.
Because Song Chenfeng being drunk and beaten up made it to the headlines, the media was paying more attention to the Song family. All the reports were about the poor relationship between Song Chenfeng and Shen Weiran as the step-son and step-mother in a rich family.
But on that day, there was explosive news outshone all the gossips lately. It went viral on the entire Internet and among the entertainment circle.
The Angel Fund was said to be falsifying internal accounting entries related to the donations and 200 million RMB was missing.
The headlines that day changed at once, ‘Behind the charity of the Movie Queen, was it love or greed?’
