Hearing Director Xu’s words, Lu Qing was surprised. What did he mean by he believed that she was not Xia Ning’s manager? What was he talking about?
“Director Xu…” Lu Qing wanted to say something else.
But Director Xu ran out of patience. “It’s time. Ask them to leave!”
The assistant knew the director was getting upset and said to Lu Qing and Fu Yao, “Please.”
Lu Qing and Fu Yao had to leave with great reluctance.
When the two were gone, Director Xu made a call.
“I’ve kicked them out. You need to pay me back for this favor.”
“I don’t believe she would say no to my show.”
“Sure. Gotta go!”
Director Xu hung up and looked at the assistant next to him. “Let’s get ready and start.”
When they walked out of the hotel, Lu Qing was so mad that she almost threw her bag on the ground. What did Director Xu mean by his last sentence? What did he mean by she was not Xia Ning’s manager? She had not received any news about that.
“Sister Lu Qing, what do we do next?” Fu Yao looked at Lu Qing sadly.
Lu Qing was in a fit of anger and answered unpleasantly, “You are asking me, and who should I ask?”
“Sister Lu Qing, don’t be mad. I’m not blaming you!” Fu Yao hurriedly said. “I’m just so upset. Director Xu did not give you any face at all. What on earth did Xia Ning do to bewitch him?”
Lu Qing heard this and sneered. “Isn’t he just a little director for idol dramas? He’s only capable enough to do this kind of unpopular shows. Why would he be all over himself?”
Fu Yao took a look at Lu Qing and said in a low voice, “Sister Lu Qing, that’s not really good thing to say, right?”
“What’s not good about it?! Even if he’s in front of us, I would say that as well.”
So why didn’t you say it just now? Fu Yao looked down and did not talk.
Lu Qing got more and more unhappy as she thought more about it. She said angrily, “If this is not working out, let’s go to the next audition. There are so many good roles and no reason for us to be afraid!”
Fu Yao heard this and nodded. “True. I trust you, Sister Lu Qing!”
Seeing Fu Yao’s amenable look, Lu Qing finally suppressed the anger from just now.
Fu Yao was so hard-working and so good. Why would she be anything less than Xia Ning?
In the small town in W Province, Xia Ning was watching Director Zeng making a call in the rest area on the set.
Zeng Jun hung up and turned to Xia Ning. “Well, it’s all good.”
Xia Ning nodded. “Thank you, Director Zeng.”
“Don’t take this as me helping you. I just don’t want you to be in the headlines about being a diva lately,” Zeng Jun thought for a moment and said with a frown. He then turned around and wanted to leave.
Xia Ning smiled. “Yes. But I still want to thank you, Uncle Zeng.”
Zeng Jun heard this and raised his eyebrows slightly. He did not say anything else and left on his own.
Xia Ning moved the corner of her lips. He looked exactly like her father, being so awkward. No wonder they were as close as brothers.
However, Lu Qing was somewhat crossing the line this time. She was even using her name to make a scene at an audition. Good thing Director Xu clarified it for her. Otherwise, Director Xu might just start to hate her.
She was not afraid but she also wanted no trouble.
Qiao Yu saw Xia Ning standing still and thinking. He walked to her side and said in a low voice, “Did you run into any trouble?”
Realizing that it was Qiao Yu, Xia Ning came to herself at once. She shook her head. “No.” After some thought, she said, “Thanks.”
“Thanking me for what?” Qiao Yu looked at her and asked in a low voice.
Xia Ning curled her lips a little. “Of course, I’m thanking you for the food, President Qiao. That restaurant really has some good food.”
Qiao Yu stared at her. “If you like, I can order it for you every day.”
Xia Ning smiled. “No need. Good food should be eaten just once, any more and it will taste like usual food. Thank you, President Qiao. I need to check on Director Zeng.” As she spoke, she walked towards Zeng Jun’s direction at once.
But as she was walking, she realized that Qiao Yu was right behind her. She frowned a little. “What are you doing?”
“Obviously, I’m going to help Director Zeng. I’m his assistant.” Qiao Yu looked at her and answered.
Xia Ning: “…”
