Xia Ning took the microphone and smiled slightly. “In fact, Brother Zheng got the stomach flu last night and he is still in the hospital now. I hope you will not add salt to the wound on the patient. But, I believe if Brother Zheng sees the news on Weibo, he will definitely speak out. Brother Zheng is a very good senior and is worth my respect. I don’t know why you think I am not getting along with him. Is it because I am a bit livid? Well, this will be the end of the press conference, and I need to get back to filming. Thanks, everyone.” As she spoke, she bowed and walked down the stage directly.
How could the reporters sit still? They rushed to follow her.
“Miss Xia, who do you think is defaming you and Zheng Haodong this time?”
“Did you offend anyone, like your last scandal?”
A few bodyguards came over to block the reporters and send them out.
But the reporters suddenly saw Qiao Yu and they surrounded him at once. There was nothing to dig on Xia Ning’s side but a few more photos of the Shengshi president would be nice too.
Xia Ning saw the crowd from far away and frowned. Indeed, paparazzi was annoying.
“Asteria, are you okay?”
Xia Ning saw Zheng Ziming in front of her. She was stunned for a second and then frowned. “Didn’t I tell you not to come?”
“You were already like this so how could I not come? But it seems like I was worrying too much,” Zheng Ziming smiled and said.
Lu Qing looked at Xia Ning and sighed. “Your ability to attract dirt is quite remarkable. Director Li said just now that you can take three days off. Use the three days to purify the darkness in your body and see if you can get whiter.”
“…” Xia Ning looked at Lu Qing speechlessly. How could she make fun of her like this? This time, she was the poor victim of a meaningless cause as well.
Wen Jing ran over and said to everyone with excitement, “Miss Xia Ning, Young Master Zheng, you didn’t see President Qiao’s charm. If he were a star, I would definitely be his fan.”
The smile on Zheng Ziming’s face disappeared immediately. He darted a look to Xia Ning next to him.
Xia Ning had no expression on her face and did not reply.
But Lu Qing was quite interested. “What happened? What happened?”
Wen Jing chuckled. “Just now some reporter was asking President Qiao about his opinions on the rumors of the hidden rules on the set. Do you know what President Qiao said? ‘Since they are rumors, there is no need to think about them. And if there were such things, why would I not know about it?’ Haha, President Qiao is so narcissistic. He was obviously saying if an actress wants to climb onto the casting couch, it would be with someone handsome and rich like him, not the old Director Li. Those words were so cool.”
“Haha…” Lu Qing laughed out loud. “This President Qiao is funny.” But, why did this sound so weird?
Xia Ning turned around and walked to her resting spot. Zheng Ziming saw that and followed.
“Asteria, should we just not take this show?” Zheng Ziming frowned.
Xia Ning looked at him and smiled. “What’s wrong with you? You need to pay money for breaching the contract.”
“It’s not like we can’t afford it.” Zheng Ziming paused his steps and looked back at Xia Ning. “Asteria, I don’t want you to…”
“Hey…” Xia Ning smiled slightly to cut him off. “Do you not trust me or not trust Qiao Yu? If I really say no to this one, I would not be able to get a role like this. You know, I don’t have that much time.”
Zheng Ziming went silent for a second and said, “Three days, where do you wanna go?”
“Maybe go back to S City.” Xia Ning started moving forward again.
Looking at Xia Ning, Zheng Ziming frowned deeply. In fact, he did not trust either of them.
