Yun Shishi took a step toward her and sneeringly enunciated, "Some people are spoiled and haughty because, since birth, they've been lavished with love from many people; others are pretentious and arrogant. They are clearly not princesses but have the bad temper of princesses. This is called the 'princess disease'; do you understand?"
Yan Bingqing, whose face was contorted with rage, glared at Yun Shishi while gritting her teeth.
The latter stared right into the former's eyes and demanded in a firm tone, "Apologize to her!"
"On what basis?!"
"Yan Bingqing, apologize to her!"
"Yun Shishi, don't you go overboard!"
"It's you who has gone overboard!"
She lifted her chin in disdain and spat, "Apologize. To. Her!"
The actress raised her hand and sent a tight slap on her face.
Seeing this, Mu Xi was left speechless in shock.
However, her artiste merely laughed, grabbed the actress's wrist, and returned the slap.
SMACK! It was not heavy, yet it sounded solid and crisp.
"This slap is for me."
Her face showed no surprise and her tone lacked emotion, yet that statement was filled with an inviolable dignity.
The actress was stunned. In the time that she was in a trance, Yun Shishi had already walked to the table and picked up a glass. She returned to face the actress and, with a jerk of her wrist, splashed the water inside it on the actress's face.
The water splattered on Yan Bingqing's makeup and dripped down her eyelashes, nose, and cheeks.
Unprepared for the situation, the actress breathed in a mouthful of cool air, closed her eyes, and allowed the water to drip.
Yun Shishi slowly said, "This is for Mu Xi!"
With that, she paid no further heed to the fury on the actress's face and just led her assistant away.
Yan Bingqing was livid.
At the back, her assistant scrambled to pick up a towel and wipe the water on her face.
With this action, her makeup was smudged and ruined.
The assistant was careful, but she still accidentally hurt her.
Incensed, she pushed her aside and ordered everyone in the room. "Get out! Scram! Get the hell out of my sight!"
The assistants looked at one another and then ran away for fear of getting implicated.
She was left alone in the huge waiting room.
She sat herself before the dressing mirror and looked into it. Her face was horrendous, and she looked ghastly; even her clothes were drenched.
Her makeup could not be done under an hour, and as for her clothes, she would have to borrow from the fashion team again.
She recalled that she still had an act in the next scene; that rookie obviously wanted to embarrass her!
Yun Shishi, you just wait!
Back in their waiting room, Mu Xi was still looking in shock at Yun Shishi who was calmly sitting in front of the dressing mirror. A flashback of that earlier scene crept into her mind, and it inevitably frightened her.
Looking at her artiste's calm face, she tremblingly asked, "Shishi, aren't you afraid?"
"Afraid of what?" The other was baffled.
"Afraid that Yan Bingqing would take revenge on you!"
Yun Shishi smiled and thought that she was just making a fuss. "It's not as if Yan Bingqing is a monster; do you think she'll eat me up?"
"…" The assistant's lips twitched. "Shishi, I'm very grateful for your help, but I'm more afraid of her taking revenge on you! After all, no one has ever spoken to her in such a manner!"
