“Yuqi, who is she?”
“Yun Shishi. She’s in the same production team as Hua Jin,” answered the agent immediately.
“Oh, an actress.”
Lin Xueya laughed. For some reason, the words she had spoken earlier seemed to be filled with disdain, as if acting was a despicable career.
Unhappiness bloomed in the actress’s heart.
Everything said by this woman was thorny, with a sense of superiority seeping through her bones.
Just as she was about to flare up, Hua Jin immediately said, “Xiaoya, don’t be like this.”
“What am I being like?”
The lady knitted her elegant brows as her tone was filled with anger. “Were you with this woman these past few days when I wasn’t in the country?”
“There’s an accident during the awards ceremony. She’s the one who’s been taking care of me since then,” explained the idol.
The lady glanced at the actress again, but her eyes were filled with judgment. Suddenly, she lifted her hand and mercilessly flipped the bowl the other was carrying onto the floor.
The bowl broke into pieces, spilling the porridge everywhere on the floor.
Yun Shishi stood up in shock.
Some of the porridge from the bowl had spilled on her body.
This nourishing porridge had only just been cooked by her. She had borrowed the hospital’s kitchen and cooked it for over an hour. It was a little hot; thus, she hurriedly smacked the porridge off her body. She could hear Lin Xueya saying languidly from the side, “I’ll get someone to cook a new bowl for you later.”
The man was furious. Unable to control his anger, he looked at the lady sharply. “What are you doing?!”
“I don’t like you eating porridge cooked by some other woman. It’s disgusting!”
The lady paused for a moment as unhappiness emerged on her face. “Also, what’s the meaning behind your tone? Are you blaming me for this?”
He had never spoken to her in this way before.
He used to speak to her with a gentle tone; now, he was glaring at her angrily because of another woman.
She was terribly upset.
The actress stood up and glanced at Lin Xueya. She had tolerated her time and again. “This young lady, did no one teach you any manners when you were young? You’re being very rude!”
The latter was taken aback for a second before she looked at the former with shock and anger.
Ji Yuqi walked over hurriedly to try and salvage the situation. “Aren’t you in a rush to return to the capital? I’ll help you book flight tickets right away. Hua Jin has Miss Xueya to care for him now, so you don’t have to worry.”
With that, she pulled her toward the exit to this room.
Before she could react in time, Yun Shishi was dragged to the door.
“Stop right there!”
The rich lady called out to her from behind.
The actress was not one to be trampled on. Therefore, she turned around and looked at her without a hint of fear.
“What did you say earlier? I didn’t catch that.”
The man on the sickbed tugged on her sleeve.
She waved his hand away expressionlessly.
Witnessing this, the actress felt indignant but remained elegant as she spoke coldly. “If you didn’t hear it clearly, then your ears probably have some issue, but I don’t mind repeating myself again. I said: You have a really bad upbringing!”
His agent’s heart jumped at her words.
No one had ever dared speak to Miss Xueya this way.
This Yun Shishi...
She tried to get her out of trouble, yet why could she not hop onto her good intentions?
Hearing this, the woman burst into laughter from her anger. “What’s your name?”
“Xiaoya!” called out the idol.
She turned around, her eyes fierce. “Who is she to you? Why are you speaking up for her?”
“Stop causing trouble.”
“Do you like her?” she interrogated haughtily. “You are so protective of her! Do you like her?”
He became unexpectedly quiet upon hearing her questions.
