She simply could not drink. If she could hold her alcohol, she would down the whole table of liquor without the man needing to ask!
The woman trembled at the thought that he would be upset for her not giving him face, which could result in the failure to get the contract, but the thought of Mu Yazhe's satanic face when he learned that she had drunk send shivers down her spine.
Thinking better of it, she decided that it was a lesser evil to offend the man before her than the man at home.
Hence, she shook her head and said tactfully, "My apologies, I really can't drink. If I could hold my alcohol, I would've given you a toast myself!"
With narrowing eyes, the man smilingly asked, "Miss Yun isn't good at drinking?"
She answered, feeling abashed, "Yes, I get drunk after one glass of wine!"
He laughed teasingly at that as he cheerfully commented, "Miss Yun is humorous indeed! How can one be a lousy drinker? If so, you need more training in that area!"
What rubbish training?!
If it could be trained, anyone would be able to drink alcohol.
Cursing him inwardly, the artiste smiled at him and poured some tea for herself. In lieu of alcohol, she made up for this unintentional snub by giving him a toast with a cup of tea!
With a meaningful smirk, he downed his glass of dry white wine. The game had just started!
The man did not mention a word regarding the contract of 'Lethal Beauty' throughout the dinner.
Given his status, he should not be the one bringing it up!
The actress should fight for her role!
This woman did not seem to have the intention to beg him for it, though!
Inevitably feeling embarrassed, he summoned Lin Zhi over with a call!
As soon as the actress stepped into the private room, she looked around and paid her respects to the bosses and producers present.
Upon sighting Yun Shishi, she was filled with questions and suspicions; was the newbie here to fight with her for the main lead role?!
She could not help but raise her vigilance.
Hence, with a coquettish laugh, she headed straight to the man and sat on his lap with her arms hooked around his neck. "Director Li, are you missing me already so you summon me over? Why haven't you come to see me for the past few days?"
He gave her a smirk as his big palms fondled and kneaded her bottom while he claimed her lips.
The kiss was simply too overwhelming under the eyes of those present.
These people, however, seemed to be used to such an obscene scene and did not reveal any discomfort about it.
Only Yun Shishi felt as if she were sitting on pins and needles. This made her feel especially awkward.
The man seemed to be bent on letting her know how other women did their best to fawn on him and pleasure him!
On the contrary, not only was she indifferent to it, she even found this erotic scene revolting. With her head bowed, no one knew what was she thinking about!
What was in the head of this woman?!
During such dinners in the past, women like her did everything they could to please the investors in hopes of snagging the female main lead role!
What about her, though?!
Not only did she not drink alcohol, she also did not state her stand regarding that matter despite the dinner having started long ago. It was as if it did not concern her!
Even if she were acting virtuous, this would be the time to stop!
He refused to believe that there would be a woman in this world who was indifferent to fame and fortune, especially not when they were constantly faced with countless temptations in a treacherous place like the entertainment industry!
