Chapter 1928: Sister-in-law is a bully.
Translator: Atlas Studios Editor: Atlas Studios
Hua Jin was a regular here even before he entered showbiz; hence, his face was known by many veterans in the industry.
However, when the frivolous idol saw Yun Shishi lying protectively in Mu Yazhe’s embrace, a glint flashed across his eyes for an instant as his lips curled into a chilling sneer.
It did not need a smart person to make out the relationship between the two as seen from the intimate way the couple behaved with each other.
Besides, he was sharp enough to see the engagement ring on the young chairman’s finger, which was identical with the one worn by the lady.
Is this man… her fiancé?
He could feel a stab in his heart instantly.
Qin Zhou was jovial as he approached the couple. “I didn’t expect to bump into our big boss here. What a coincidence!”
He probed Lin Fengtian cautiously, “That man is…”
“Mu Yazhe, the owner of Huanyu; don’t you know him?”
He was stunned momentarily, shaking his head as he answered truthfully thereafter, “Nope. I have heard of his name but haven’t met him in person before.”
“Let me give you a warning: Be careful when you interact with him. You mustn’t be flippant with your words or action around him. Your backer won’t be able to protect you if you antagonize this man; do you hear me?”
The reason these three were together this evening was that the recently festive director invited out Qin Zhou for a drink and then got the idol to tug along to discuss a project.
The young man was very respectful and particularly in awe of Qin Zhou. Hence, he was on his best behavior tonight with the two around.
He was savvy and street-smart to know the right thing to say at the right time.
Lin Fengtian had a favorable impression of this young actor as he knew a thing or two about his past. The veteran was prepared to pave the way for the latter.
“You’re working with Shishi in a TV drama, right?”
“Yes… Her part is about to wrap up soon,” informed the idol matter-of-factly.
Nodding his head, the director gave him a stern warning. “You’d better keep a distance from her.”
This was the first time he had heard someone tell him to be wary of something. Folks would normally advise the rest to keep away from him and not the other way around.
“The man behind her is very possessive! You may be banned for staying too close to her for comfort,” elaborated the director emphatically.
After saying that, he walked over to give a toast to Mu Yazhe.
The magnate glanced at him before narrowing his eyes at Hua Jin.
The actress was startled to see her co-actor and acknowledged him with a faint smile.
The chap smiled at her in return. “What a coincidence to see you here!”
“Yes, I’m here to drink with my friends.”
By then, Jiang Shen, who had had too much to drink, took this chance to rebut. “Sister-in-law, what do you mean by drinking with us? You did not touch the alcohol at all! Drinking with you is a loss for us! You’re a bully!”
The woman waved her fist at him. “Shut up!”
She had gotten used to her husband’s close-knit group and no longer had qualms horsing around them.
The idol furrowed his brows in disbelief.
Other than the tycoon, he found the rest very familiar. All were influential figures in their rights and were certainly not people to trifle with.
