Xia Ning went back to S City in the early morning. She did not really rest before she had to get ready for work.
The female lead role for Shi Hao’s music video had long been decided. In fact, it was dragged on for a long time, with Shi Hao accommodating to her time.
When she was on the way to the set in the morning, Lu Qing saw the eyebags on Xia Ning’s face and frowned. “I told you not to work so hard. You should take a good rest since you just got back.”
Xia Ning smiled. “I have to give it my best. Don’t I have to go to Director Zeng’s set next week?”
Lu Qing was a bit speechless. “I’ve never thought of you like this. Work is work. You need to take good care of yourself.”
Xia Ning nodded.
As if she thought of something, Lu Qing said suddenly, “While you were away, President Qiao called me and asked for you. You…”
Xia Ning darted a look at her. “He probably wanted to ask about my relationship with Gao Yang. You know there’s nothing between me and Gao Yang.”
“Oh.” Lu Qing nodded and did not ask any more questions. Instead, she changed the topic. “Zheng Haodong looked for you as well saying he wanted to see you. Even though I don’t want you to see him again, I think you should still know about this.”
Xia Ning took out her phone to browse through the recent entertainment news. There was a lot of criticism online but it was as if Zheng Haodong disappeared. There was no PR at all and that was odd.
Lu Qing knew what Xia Ning was looking at and could not help but say, “I heard Zheng Haodong offended President Qiao and got himself banned. Who knows where he is hiding now. But he did this to himself!”
Xia Ning turned off her phone and said calmly, “Well, what’s done is done. No need to mention this anymore.”
Lu Qing nodded. She knew Xia Ning’s personality. She was not any silly girl without a brain that would take in everything. If someone hurt her, she would pay them back tenfold. But she was never a ruthless person who would destroy others completely. She could always control the development of the matter perfectly. She was never too extreme, but at the same time, she wouldn’t let herself get hurt.
“Also, someone took photos of you and Shen Tianlang on a date in England. What happened?” Lu Qing said suddenly.
Xia Ning darted a look at her and frowned. “More rumors?”
Lu Qing shrugged. “Seems like you know you have too many gossips. But rest assured. I’ve bought the copies of the photos so they won’t go out.”
Xia Ning took another look at her and said with a frown, “Seems like our company has a lot of spare money.”
“It’s your money anyway. If you didn’t admit, I wouldn’t know that you are the second-biggest shareholder of our company.” Lu Qing looked at Xia Ning in a somewhat irritated way. “You did a good job hiding it from me.”
Xia Ning smiled and said, “I’ll buy you food for compensation.”
“Ten meals. No, a hundred meals!”
Xia Ning was speechless. “You sure know how to bargain.” She thought for a second and then said, “Release this gossip.”
Lu Qing looked at Xia Ning with confusion. “Why?”
Xia Ning said half-jokingly, “Don’t you think dating a fuerdai young master sounds better than gossips with a gay?”
Lu Qing: “…” How could one gossip be better than another? She almost threw up her meal from last night.
“Xia Ning, are you sure you don’t have a fever?” Lu Qing tried to calm herself down and asked.
Xia Ning darted a look at her. “Follow what I said.”
Lu Qing saw the serious face of Xia Ning and nodded. She swallowed what she wanted to ask. Didn’t she say Shen Weiran was her aunt? So was Shen Tianlang her cousin? Why did she feel it smelled like the family drama of the rich?
