Gu Xingze staggered for a few steps. Alas, before he could do anything, a tall figure emanating hostility swiftly walked past him to reach Yun Shishi's side first.
Why was he here?
In that very moment, everyone at the venue was shell-shocked.
Even Yan Bingqing's face turned ghastly pale as she stood rooted to the spot. She did not expect Yun Shishi to be so frail, fainting from just a few slaps!
What she had failed to consider, though, was how heavy-handed she had been.
Would any normal person be able to take it?
The members of the production team surrounded the unconscious artiste. Her assistant, who now knelt helplessly beside her, broke into tears as she regarded her inflamed and swollen cheek. Shakily, she fished out her phone and called for an ambulance.
Mu Yazhe was enraged. Viciously pushing the crowd to the side, he crouched slightly to embrace his woman.
His long fingers caressed her utterly swollen cheek. From where he had stood earlier, he was unable to see this side of her face at all. He wholly attributed her deathly pallor to her act in the show!
As such, witnessing her collapse to the ground after that resounding slap, he could hardly breathe right now. He felt something in his heart struggle to pump for blood!
Following which, his chest undulated with an immense and uncontrollable rage.
He was so livid he was ready to annihilate the world!
He gently caressed her cheek, which had just been slapped, and felt that it was hot to the touch.
Her cheek was bloody red, and her skin was pale enough for veins to show. This would not have been possible if it had just been a mere slap on the face!
He held her shoulders lovingly, anguish and rage coursing through him. He had to take in a deep, calming breath first before he could rein in his uncontrollable urge to wreck this set!
Slowly lifting his head, he glared at the person who had reduced his woman into this sorry state!
How dared she slap her for real?!
She did it in such a heavy-handed way, too!
Was she courting death?!
Yan Bingqing could feel his murderous eyes on her person.
Right now, his icy aura was much like a panther eyeing its prey for the killing. It was as if, any second now, he would lunge at her and swallow her whole without leaving a piece behind.
Getting the feeling that a dreadful monster was eyeing her, she broke out in a cold sweat as she took a few involuntary steps backward.
When this aristocratic man with his godly features first rushed on set, many failed to recognize him.
After all, based on their social standing, they had sans the privilege to meet Disheng Financial Group's CEO personally.
Likewise, the actress also failed to identify him at first, but after sizing up his bearing, she belatedly realized that he was the Mu Group's crown prince.
What was his relationship with this newbie?!
Witnessing him embrace her with a distraught face, she was at a loss on what to think!
A prior reminder from someone abruptly popped in her mind. 'That newbie, she has a bit of background. Sister Bingqing, you'd better not offend her!'
A bit of a background…
Could this 'bit' of background that person had spoken of referring to…
She carefully mulled it over and practically broke out in a cold sweat.
The hand that had just slapped Yun Shishi was still numb.
At this moment, as she considered the possibility of this newcomer being this man's woman, her hair could not help but stand on end.
All she wanted was to teach this newcomer, who did not know any better, a lesson.
After all, she had just debuted recently, yet she was already carrying herself with such arrogance.
