He sighed. "Stop causing a ruckus! Your artiste has already returned to the company. You shouldn't be here any longer; don't you have work tomorrow?"
Li Dongliang wanted that actress. His superior already had an agreement with the man; how could he let this assistant take her away?
Moreover, that investor was not someone this assistant could afford to offend, either.
"Really?" Mu Xi looked at him askance. "Did she really go back to the company?"
He maintained his expression and nodded. "That's right! If not, where would she be? She just left!"
She was still suspicious; thus, he pulled her along to the carpark to avoid further complications. He said, "Come on; I'll send you home since it's on the way!"
She let him pull her along dumbly, but she still looked back at the hotel entrance a couple of times as they walked further away. She had an ominous premonition.
When they were on the road in the car, it finally hit her that things could not be that simple. Immediately, she shouted to be let out of the car.
He was not about to let that happen.
She started making a din in the car. "Secretary Li, let me out right now! I'm warning you, Shishi's status isn't simple. Don't think that she's just an ordinary celebrity!"
"What? Are you threatening me right now?" He squinted his eyes at her, his gaze dangerous and pressuring.
She snorted and puffed up her chest. "What if I tell you that she's Chairman Mu's woman?!"
The car came to a screeching halt.
His eyes bulged. "What did you say?!"
"Shishi is the big boss's woman. If she's hurt in any way… He he! You should've heard of his tactics before. Please don't say I didn't warn you if it ever comes down to that!" said Mu Xi as she refused to back down.
He could not really believe her words. "If she's really Master Mu's woman, why is she in showbiz?!"
She kept quiet.
"Being his woman means that she can indulge in a plethora of wealth and glory. Where did you hear such news? It's laughable!"
She snorted at his ignorance. She cared not for his thought and just clambered out of the car in a hurry.
She said viciously as she slammed the door shut. "Li Quan, if she suffers from even the slightest mishap, you are finished!"
With that, she turned and ran in the direction of the hotel.
The man sat in the driver's seat blankly for a long time, unable to regain his senses!
At this time, Yun Shishi was seated uneasily in Li Dongliang's sedan.
He was sitting in the backseat.
Originally, she wanted to sit in the passenger seat, but he said that this was against the rules.
Left with no choice, she could only fearfully sit in the backseat with him as she tried to maintain a distance from him.
She told the driver the company's address and sat close to the door. Soon, she realized that the road outside the car did not look right, so she turned to remind the driver, "Mister, this isn't the way back to the company! You should've taken the other road earlier!"
The driver only smiled, not saying a word.
Li Dongliang teased, "Don't worry. He knows what he is doing. Is Miss Yun afraid that we will sell you away?"
She shook her head, lowering it and not saying another word while she fiddled with her fingers.
The atmosphere in the car was making her extremely uncomfortable. She hoped so badly that he would just leave her at the roadside and let her take a cab back home alone.
As the car speedily passed many sceneries along the highway, she began to feel that something was really off.
Huanyu Tower was at a buzzling district at the heart of the capital, yet this car was heading to the outskirts. Instead, the road it was on seemed to be leading toward another district.
