She was merely away for half a day, and her staff already got bullied.
Yan Bingqing was simply intolerable.
Mu Xi was adamant to stop her from going to the actress. "Shishi, we need not offend her! Yan Bingqing is quite powerful. She usually hangs out with plenty of rich and powerful men, so she can easily suppress anyone. In fact, many female stars are at her beck and call. We can't win against her!"
"I'm not gonna argue with her; I'm just gonna make her see reason," she answered unhappily.
"Reason?" Her assistant chuckled wryly. "This circle is like this; they don't reason and simply care if one has potential, power, background, backing, and resources! Those in this circle only value these things. In their eyes, reason is but a joke! I don't wish to add on to your trouble. When I have chosen this line of work, I have already mentally prepared myself for stuff like this."
"All right. I have my views. In any case, I still want her to give you an apology today!"
With that, she held her hand and proceeded to the actress's waiting room.
Somehow, as Mu Xi followed her artiste, she felt that the latter's image was suddenly a lot bigger.
She had worked as an assistant for other stars before.
The so-called assistant could be described as a cow slogging hard.
If the star was unhappy, the assistant was up for a scolding and beating.
It was really tough to be an assistant; it might look glamorous on the surface to work close to so many stars, but in reality, an assistant suffered the most and had to watch the faces of other people.
To Mu Xi, a star who would really treat their aide as a friend did not exist at all.
The appearance of her artiste controverted this cognition of hers.
It turned out that a sincere friendship between a star and an assistant was possible.
She felt truly grateful to her artiste!
Yan Bingqing was in the VIP waiting room designated for her. It was more luxurious and grander than Yun Shishi's.
She was very fastidious and strict about the preparation for this set.
This waiting room was, in fact, meant for Yun Shishi, but it was snatched away by Yan Bingqing. The former did not mind and gave it up easily.
It was only a waiting room to her and held not much importance.
Reaching the doorway, she entered freely the room. Yan Bingqing was in the middle of retouching her makeup, and seeing her walk in with Mu Xi, she more or less knew what this was all about.
She had expected this to happen.
She was unafraid of a mere rookie confronting her. It was just as well. She could put her foot down and teach her a lesson, too!
Hence, she smilingly asked, "What's the matter?"
"Sister Bingqing, are you busy?" Yun Shishi was not angry as she had expected her to be. Instead, she had a smile on her face and an elegant demeanor.
This type of elegance, which was like an aristocratic temperament seeping through the bones, was different from hers.
The other was innately graceful, whereas she depended on expensive makeup and designer clothes to achieve such a noble aura.
When the two standing together like this, it was obvious who had the upper hand.
A little sidetracked, she answered, "Not busy."
What was unbeknown to her was that Yun Shishi's smile had the effect of subduing her presence.
"Well, I just returned from filming and saw that my assistant's arm was scalded. Even though she did not mention anything to me, I heard from those present then that it was splashed by you. With that being the case, I'd like to ask your side of the story."
"It was indeed done by me." Yan Bingqing raised a brow and admitted to it frankly. "I didn't do it on purpose, though. Are you two here to blame me?"
