Chapter 342: I Won’t Let Qiao Yu Near You Again!Translator: Henyee Translations Editor: Henyee Translations
Seeing the king-like man in front of them, the group of actresses stopped talking at once. They lowered their heads and did not dare to look at him.
Qiao Yu darted a glance at them and said to Director Zeng who was not too far away, “Director Zeng, these people saw that Xia Ning was working so hard and wanted to substitute for her. Do you think they will work?”
The actresses looked at Qiao Yu in shock. They did not expect him to be actually doing this.
One of them said at once, “Director Zeng, that’s not the case. It’s just…”
“Huh? So were you lying to me just now?” Qiao Yu looked to the front and asked calmly.
That actress stopped talking at once. She looked down and did not dare to say anything else. No kidding. If she offended President Qiao today, how would she be able to stay in the show business later?
Zeng Jun walked over and paused his eyes briefly at Qiao Yu and the actresses. He suddenly said, “You can give it a try but the scenes Xia Ning did are good.”
Qiao Yu looked to Zeng Jun, “So what you are saying is, Director Zeng… they passed?”
Zeng Jun nodded. “Yes, they passed. But there are a few scenes that we could use doubles for. Ask them to do an audition and pick the best one.”
“Sure,” Qiao Yu answered at once. He then turned to Chen Hong. “Arrange it now.”
“Yes, Boss. Oh no, Deputy Director,” Chen Hong said with respect. He darted a look at the actresses who had their heads low and were trying to keep a low profile. They must have thought Boss was joking with them.
That was naive. Boss was not the type who treated women well. If he had to treat someone specially, that someone would definitely be his future wife.
They were really talking too much. Boss was here and they still dared to say bad things about Miss Xia. Now, they just had to taste the consequence.
When Xia Ning came back from the scene, she saw Chen Hong taking a few actresses away with him. And the air on the set was somewhat tense. She looked at Lin Nan on the side with confusion.
Lin Nan looked back at her and shook his head, indicating that he did not know what was going on either.
Xia Ning did not ask more. She walked to the rest area directly and sat down to read the script.
Lin Nan saw Xia Ning’s back and his eyes looked complicated. Any other woman would feel something different if she knew she was being treated specially by a man in such a forceful way. So, please forgive his selfishness.
He turned his head to the cold and cruel man not too far away. After a few days of contact, he had to admit that this man was really putting his heart on Xia Ning. But this was not a reason for him to give up.
He had known Xia Ning for over a decade. The relationship after such a long time was absolutely strong. And now, he just had to address the elephant in the room.
Wen Jing took a bottle of water and handed it to Xia Ning. “Sister Xia Ning, you are sweating so much. Drink some water.”
Xia Ning took the bottle and looked at Wen Jing, “You should take a break too. It’s hot today.”
“Sure.” Wen Jing sat down next to Xia Ning and saw Qiao Yu not too far away. She said suddenly, “President Qiao was so cool just now.”
Xia Ning did not speak.
Wen Jing looked like she was charmed. “If President Qiao decides to be an actor, I will be his No. 1 fan. If I have a boyfriend like that, it will be even better.” As she spoke, she looked at Xia Ning with envy. “Sister Xia Ning, I’m super jealous of you!”
Xia Ning closed the script and looked at Wen Jing. “What are you jealous about?” She curled her lips.
Seeing Xia Ning’s icy pupils, Wen Jing felt the words that were coming out getting blocked immediately. She smiled awkwardly.
Xia Ning’s lips moved. “Many things are not as beautiful as you see. Many people are also not as perfect as you imagine. No matter when, you should be a person who doesn’t lose her own heart. This is what I can tell you as I get more experience. Keep in mind that you deserve better.”
Wen Jing stared at Xia Ning’s face from the side. She had known that Xia Ning was a person with her own thoughts. But she never really talked a whole lot about her relationships. Now she just said something like this. Was it because of President Qiao?
If that was the case, did anything happen between them before? She looked at Qiao Yu who was not too far away and frowned a little. President Qiao did not look like someone who would desert his love. Was it because he was too good at faking it? That would be really bad! If that was the case, no way could Sister Xia Ning stay with him!
“Sister Xia Ning, rest assured. I won’t let Qiao Yu near you again!” Wen Jing said with determination all over her face.
Xia Ning: “…” She looked at Wen Jing and felt puzzled. What was going on in this girl’s brain now?!
