"Xiao Mu, turn it down for me!"
"Ah?" The assistant was shocked. "Shishi, are you mad? This is a rare chance! If you perform well and Global Pictures is satisfied with it, they may put you in the production team of 'Lethal Beauty'."
"I have something on tonight and won't be able to make it. Help me turn it down!" replied her artiste resolutely.
Even though she found it to be a pity, she could not force her artiste to abide by her wishes, so she tactfully relayed the message to Sun Hua.
The man flew into a rage when he got this reply.
That actress had just debuted, yet she was putting on airs already?!
She actually flatly refused Global Pictures' invitation!
This was ridiculous!
She was clearly acting as a diva!
When news of the artiste 'acting as a diva' got to Li Dongliang, one of Global Pictures' higher-ups, he also became enraged!
With the phone tightly in hand, Sun Hua could hear the irk and sarcasm in the man's voice. "That woman is acting virtuous, huh! What? Is it Global Pictures or me that she despises for her to refuse the dinner invitation?!"
A cab steadily came to a stop at the entrance of Global Pictures. Alighting from the car, Sun Hua apologetically and submissively explained on the phone. "Mr. Li, don't be angry! There's no need for you to be so affected by a small actress, right?"
On the other end, the man sneered. "He he! What?! I invited her for a meal because I think highly of her! After so many years in this industry, I haven't heard of such an actress before! Hmph! She's pretty arrogant, huh! I bet she looks down on me! Hmph!"
Pausing, the man continued. "Just how did you handle things?! I got you to invite her for a meal, but in the end? I was met with a sharp rebuff! You want people in Global Pictures to see me as a laughingstock, don't you?! I think you're just messing with me!"
Sun Hua could not help feeling flustered and vexed. "Sir, what are you saying?! How would I dare to mess with you?!"
The man snorted, his voice revealing his fiery rage. "That woman really opened my eyes! I don't care how you do it, but you must get back my dignity! Whether she likes it or not, she must come! Otherwise, you can get out of here!"
Panic-stricken, the other rushed to placate him. "He he. Sir, don't be angry! It's all my fault! How about we have that dinner tomorrow night, instead? I'll make sure to bring her to you! By then, you can do whatever you want with her! What do you think?"
The man laughed. "You sure know how to curry favor! Tomorrow night, then. Don't make me wait too long! I don't wish to waste time! You know me; I don't have much patience!"
He hung up the call before the latter could reply.
Sun Hua was also angry with the artiste for not giving him face. She had just debuted with an unreleased movie, yet she was already acting as a diva.
Li Dongliang thought highly of her when she caught his attention. Hence, the invitation for a meal.
She should know that not everyone was eligible to attend that dinner party!
Many female stars were waiting in line for their turn, yet she flatly refused him when she was given that chance. What did she mean by this?!
When he showed her photo to the man, Li Dongliang was blown away by her beauty.
