Straightening her body uneasily, she leaned against the car window, looked out, and said with a frown, "This is clearly driving in the opposite direction of the company!"
Li Dongliang smiled eerily. "Of course, this isn't going to your office."
She turned her head abruptly. "Where are we going then?!"
She looked confused and frustrated, though she felt bewildered more than anything else. The man unmistakably said that he would send her back; why did he go against his words now?
What puzzled her more was where exactly he was bringing her!
"Director Li, let me get down here! I'll call a taxi myself!"
He replied, "This place is so desolate; how can you get a taxi? Isn't it unsafe to leave a girl like you alone here?"
She was pushed to her limits by now. Disregarding his status totally, her pitch rose sharply as she said, "You have to get it straight; it's you who brought me to this desolate location in the first place! I clearly gave you the office address, so why did you come here?! What's your motive?! If you are really worried about me, send me back to the office now!"
The man stared at her for some time before he guffawed suddenly.
Unable to fathom what was so funny about this situation, she eyeballed him quizzically.
"Send me home right now!"
"What if…" the man muttered slowly, "I'm unwilling?"
She widened her eyes in shock. When she noticed the distinctive evil glint in his eyes, she reacted with a start. Narrowing her eyes, she forced herself to calm down and sneeringly asked, "What do you want exactly?"
He cocked his brow nonchalantly. "Why continue feigning ignorance when you are already in the car with me? Are you telling me that you don't know why we are here? Hasn't Kong Xiaoqian told you anything?"
She frowned. "Why am I here? I'm clearly here to discuss the movie deal with you, but since the dinner is over, shouldn't you let me home now?"
She was neither an idiot nor a woman with low EQ, which Mu Yazhe made her out to be.
If she still could not understand what was happening here, then she should really get her IQ checked!
She could tell that this man was interested in her and harboring ulterior motive!
She did find him fishy at first but did not mull over it.
First, it was because he did not show any lewd action or interest in her during the dinner.
Second, she believed that with his status, he would have no shortage of women, especially someone like her.
After the dinner, though, his behavior had put her in high alert mode.
Hence, she did her best to keep a distance from him. When she first joined the company, she had heard of incidents surrounding the hidden rules and acts of favors where actresses had to drink and sleep with investors.
Still, she had never imagined that such a thing would happen to her one day.
Sleep with investors?
Over my dead body!
That Kong Xiaoqian is too much! She knew that this is an indecent proposition and still led me here!
She clearly did this on purpose!
Clenching her fists, she replied coldly, "Li Dongliang, I strongly advise you to send me back! I'm not the kind of woman who you think I am!"
This got the man interested, so he asked in return. "Oh? What do you want, then? He he! I can give you whatever you want!"
