"I'm also feeling disturbed that, despite having so many bad takes, you still can't seem to remember your lines."
"Yun Shishi—" She glared viciously at her first before she broke into an evil grin. "All right, b*tch, we'll see!"
"Director Lin, this newbie's glare at me gave me a shock! Do you think I'm being marked by her now?"
She could no longer keep track of the many bad takes and slaps she received from this woman. Her body swayed slightly as her peripheral limbs turned cold and clammy.
It had become difficult for her to lift her head by now.
Adding the thoughtless remarks of those around her, the humiliation and shame she was receiving nearly oppressed her to the point of suffocation.
This feeling seemed to wrap around her throat and choke her alive.
She had never been this humiliated before.
Her pride, like her face, was shredded into pieces, stomped under this woman's feet.
It was mind-numbing and shameful.
She held back her tears forcefully as her frosty eyes rimmed red.
"Let's take a break now. Everyone, take this chance to get yourself into the right frame of mind."
Mu Xi helped her artiste into the restroom. The former burst into tears when she saw the latter's overtly red and swollen cheek. "It's too much; she's too much…"
Ding Ning was equally flustered from anger as she tried to conceal the bruises on Yun Shishi's face with thick foundation.
Alas, the swelling and wound could not be hidden by the many layers she applied on the artiste's face.
Yun Shishi sipped her lips and contemplated this most shameful moment in her life.
A black Bentley halted at the basement parking lot of Huanyu Tower.
Min Yu walked to the car and opened the rear door for his boss to alight gracefully.
An important board meeting here required his attendance.
This parking floor was usually empty and quiet.
However, this time around, Mu Yazhe could see some human traffic.
They seemed to be part of a production crew judging from their attire.
He promptly ordered his secretary to check this out in greater detail.
His assistant walked toward a busy cluster and returned with the updates not too long after. "Boss, there's a filming underway right now!"
"Filming?" He frowned. "Which production team?"
"Eh… The one Huanyu has invested some time ago: 'The Green Apple'. It's directed by Lin Fengtian."
That's the movie Yun Shishi is acting, right?
He clenched his lips for a moment. Although he was not abreast with the entertainment news, he was still aware that his woman's debut would be in 'The Green Apple', which was currently being directed by Lin Fengtian.
Does that mean she's around, too?
"Let's go and have a look."
Min Yu reminded hesitatingly, "Boss… the board meeting is about to commence."
"It won't take long. I just want to have a quick look."
"Okay." His assistant nodded and followed behind him quietly.
When the man reached the production set, the crew's filming was already underway. He looked at the center of activity and saw Yun Shishi and Yan Bingqing facing off each other. From his angle, he could only partially catch sight of his woman's face.
She looked light and dewy with lifeless and hollow eyes.
Indeed, she looked as if she were barely breathing.
It was as if her life force had been sucked out from her, leaving behind a hollow shell.
His heart twitched painfully at this sight.
Yan Bingqing was staring down at her. From her gestures and mannerisms, she seemed to be interrogating the latter as her mouth moved. However, he was too far to catch her words clearly.
Min Yu, who was standing beside him, commented, "What are they acting about? Miss Yun's acting seems to be spot on!"
He reckoned that her strange look was part of her script.
