Lin Nan looked at Xia Ning in shock. Did she know already? He didn’t even have the chance to tell her his feelings and she already knew?
Seeing Lin Nan’s unsettled face, Xia Ning chuckled. “Brother Lin, you can’t be taking me for real?”
Lin Nan’s face went stiff for a second. He looked at her, confused.
Xia Ning coughed and said with a smile, “I was just joking with you. Don’t call me impolite. You are my Uncle Lin, so you can’t get mad at me.”
Lin Nan looked at Xia Ning in a funny way. “You…” That really caught him by surprise.
But why did he feel a bit disappointed in his heart? It must be that he really wanted to be with her soon.
Yes, he was her Uncle Lin, but they were not blood-related in any way.
After lunch, Xia Ning said goodbye to Lin Nan immediately.
Lin Nan wanted to invite her to his place but he was afraid he might scare her.
Not too far away, in the black Bentley, the man in the back seat watched the Maserati leaving in front of them and his eyes glanced at the man standing by the road. He said calmly, “Go back to the company.”
Xia Ning was driving and saw the traffic light turning red at the crossing ahead. She stopped her car and took a look at the time. It was 1 pm. She still has time.
All of a sudden, her phone rang.
It was from Lu Qing.
“Hello, Lu Qing. What’s up?” Xia Ning picked up the call.
Lu Qing’s enraged voice came from the other side. “Xia Ning, why didn’t you take me to the press conference today? What do you mean?”
Xia Ning looked at the countdown of the red light. 30 seconds to go.
“I don’t remember firing you as my manager yet, so for press conferences, should I be the one taking you?”
Lu Qing paused for a second and continued, “Then why didn’t you come to the company?”
“Did I say I was going from the company? Lu Qing, aren’t you the one who makes the arrangements? If you don’t have an arrangement, can I take it as you don’t have time to go? Or are you not planning to go?” Xia Ning stared at the red light in front of her. 10 seconds to go.
“Xia Ning, are you sure you want to give up our friendship from a long time ago?” Lu Qing sounded like she was furious.
Xia Ning frowned slightly. “Seems like you still haven’t realized your problem. How about this? Before the end of filming for ‘The City of Desperation’, I will give you another chance.” As she spoke, she hung up. The light turned green and she drove away directly.
In the conference room at SE Entertainment, Lu Qing stared at her phone and looked ugly. “Xia Ning, what the hell do you want? What do you mean by giving me another chance? What did I do wrong?”
On the side, Fu Yao said ironically, “Sister Lu Qing, Xia Ning is famous now and wants to get rid of you. She didn’t want you to go to the press conference today at all. I heard Young Master Zheng is looking for a new manager for her.”
“What did you say?” Lu Qing glared at Fu Yao. Looking for a new manager?
Fu Yao held Lu Qing’s hand and comforted her, “Sister Lu Qing, don’t be mad. Xia Ning has her nose in the air. She’s not even that famous and she doesn’t care about you already so what will she do later? She didn’t remember anything from when she was still a newcomer, or anyone who helped her along the road. Now it’s not about her abandoning you, but you abandoning her. With your capability, Sister Lu Qing, are you afraid you won’t be able to make someone more famous than her?”
Lu Qing heard this and got even angrier. She ground her teeth and looked to the front. “Xia Ning, you made me do this.”
“Sister Lu Qing, don’t you have a few scripts for Xia Ning lately?” Fu Yao asked in a low voice.
Lu Qing sneered. “Who said they were for her?” She looked to Fu Yao. “You are right. With my capability, why should I be worried about not making others more famous? Fu Yao, don’t let me down.”
Fu Yao heard and looked happy, “Thank you, Sister Lu Qing. I definitely won’t let you down.”
