Chapter 1676: Are you filming?
After receiving a call from her charge, Mu Xi quickly contacted a few people who had apartments for lease. Thereafter, she patiently waited for them at the entrance to a neighborhood for quite a while.
Once Yun Shishi parked the car, she got out with a mask covering her face.
Her assistant went forward with a welcoming smile. “Shishi, you haven’t gone to the production team for a few days; I heard that the director had given you a short vacation to rest at home since it was your birthday!”
Yun Qingmiao raised a brow as she caught this piece of information, asking thereafter, “Production team? Director?”
She paused for a moment before turning to her in astonishment. “Cousin, are you filming a show right now?”
“Sort of!” replied the latter ambiguously.
She was a little unhappy with that.
It seemed that her cousin was trying to hide something from them.
Not giving her a chance to probe further, Yun Shishi prompted, “Let’s have a look at the apartments!”
She then walked to the front and hurriedly pulled her assistant along. “Don’t mention my status to them, okay?”
The other was befuddled. “I should be the one asking you questions. Why did you have me search for an apartment out of nowhere? Plus…” She glanced at the three women standing behind her charge and was even more weirded out. “Who are they?”
Her artist sighed. “Relatives. I have to take care of them and help them settle since they are new here in the capital.”
Mu Xi furrowed her eyebrows before she said worriedly, “It’s not that I’m driving a wedge between you guys, but I feel that these three aren’t easy to deal with!”
She had been in the industry for many years. She may not be a very excellent judge of character, but she could still tell people’s intentions from the way they talked and behaved!
For someone in her line of work, learning to observe body language was a basic skill. At the very least, she should have a rough grasp of someone’s personality just by looking once.
These three did not give her a good feeling.
“I didn’t know that they’re your relatives, and that’s why my tongue slipped! In any case, it’s best if you don’t get too close to them next time. Your career in showbiz is currently on the rise, so it’s best to avoid any trouble.”
Her artist told her the rough situation.
She understood. Walking over to Xiang Yu, she smilingly greeted her. “Hi, auntie. I’m your niece’s colleague. I’ll be bringing you around to look at the apartments and have you all settled promptly.”
The middle-aged woman observed their surroundings. Suddenly, she furrowed her brows in question. “Why is this neighborhood so quiet? This location appears to be rather desolate and not lively at all.”
The assistant was speechless for a moment.
“Auntie, it’s like this… It’s daytime now, so people in this area are all out working.”
“Oh!” The other was still a little uncertain. “Don’t give me an apartment that’s too desolate, or I may feel there’s a hidden danger!”
“Why would there be? It’s not too remote. While it’s a little far from the city center, the traffic routes here are convenient and fast. There’s also public transportation right outside this neighborhood. Not far from here, we have the no. 3 train route, which goes straight to the city center! It’s not very far from the heart of the city at all!”
Actually, she used quite a bit of effort in finding this apartment. The capital’s housing prices had always been atrocious, and the closer it was to the city center, the more expensive it was.
She had, therefore, been meticulous in choosing the right house.
Her artist was more assured with letting her handle such matters, so the other assuredly entrusted her with bringing the rest to see the apartment.
Alas, as they checked out the apartment, the pair of sisters began issuing complaints about it.
For one, it was too high up and they were used to their old house. They said that they felt acrophobic when they stood on the balcony of this apartment, which was on the thirty-fifth floor.
