She pretended to be surprised. "Surely not? Are you bullying the newbie now?"
"I'm bullying you; what can you do about it?" Yan Bingqing laughed.
In her eyes, newbies, just like this one, besides having sharp tongues, were wholly vulnerable!
Yun Shishi remained calm as she kindly reminded her. "There are a lot of paparazzi outside today. If words of Yan Bingqing ostracizing a newcomer by claiming monopoly of a common makeup room got out, wouldn't the news tomorrow be very fascinating?"
"Are you threatening me?" The actress narrowed her eyes dangerously at her.
"Oh, no. Obviously, it's my senior, Yan Bingqing, who is making things difficult for this newbie here." She proceeded to point to the surveillance camera at one corner of the wall. "This bullying is clearly caught on camera!"
The actress followed where she was pointing with her eyes and indeed saw a small surveillance camera up there.
She gritted her teeth as she wrung her head angrily to glare at her. Forcing herself to calm down, she said, "Yun Shishi, you win!"
She smiled, albeit a tight-lipped one. In fact, her eyes were still frosty when she looked at the mirror again.
Yan Bingqing, who felt that she had lost her stage presence before the two other women in the room, did not forget to threaten her before she left. "Yun Shishi, I'm warning you; don't be too arrogant! Don't think that, just because Director Lin supports you, you can do whatever you want! Who do you think you are? Since you've offended me, don't expect for this to end well!"
The other, unfazed by her threat, reminded her in return. "You talked too much. There's not much time left; can't you just go put on your makeup?"
The two other women had long frozen on their spots.
This Yun Shishi was really impressive!
Could it be that she also had a powerful background, and that was why she was unafraid of Yan Bingqing's threat at all?
Seeing her annoyed expression, the actress was about to flare up again.
At the door, Gu Xingze's magnetic voice came.
Tensing, the actress promptly hid her vicious look as she turned around. Putting on a sweet smile with the demeanor of a goddess again and seeing the superstar standing there, she readily welcomed him. "Xingze, it's you!"
The startled Yun Shishi turned to look at him, too.
Alas, she only saw the man standing at the entrance, looking at the actress with his cold eyes, and never casting a glance her way.
Facing the actress, he asked, "You're back. Are you feeling better these days?"
She shyly smiled, feeling touched. "Xingze, thank you for your concern. After resting for a few days, the fever has gone down, and I'm feeling much better now!"
Mu Xi was left speechless.
This Yan Bingqing was said to be an empty vase - she had the looks but not the talent. However, right now, her acting skills were superb!
She clearly had a fierce expression just moments ago.
With a turn, she changed her look.
After exchanging pleasantries, the man then said, "Well, take care of your body; the next few scenes are very important."
The actress smiled and nodded coyly. "Yes, Xingze. Take care of your body, too. Is your workload still the same lately?"
He answered vaguely, "I should go back now to prepare for my lines as filming will start soon."
"Okay! Keep it up!"
With that, he left the makeup room. Earlier when he passed by, he overheard an argument erupting inside, followed by Yun Shishi's voice.
He worriedly stepped in to take a gander.
Sure enough, he saw Yan Bingqing harassing her.
Helping to defuse the situation, he naturally could not let Yun Shishi realize his concern for her.
Once she sent off the man from the door, the actress quickly turned to sit in front of the mirror.
"Ding Ning, come over and apply my makeup first."
