What was her status compared to her? Not only did she treat her casually, she also mingled with her seniors rather conceitedly time and again.
She just wanted to coach this newcomer of this industry's rules.
Little did she know that she was… this man's woman.
With a lifeless complexion, this actress stood rooted to the spot.
The man lifted his head while keeping his woman secured in his arms. Her body was weak and petite, weighing no more than a feather. He was able to embrace her fully with just one arm and just an ounce of strength.
He approached Yan Bingqing; his gaze was so sharp it seemed capable of cutting her. In a split second, the actress felt as if her body had been punctured a thousand times.
"Were you the one who had hit her?" His icy thin lips parted to produce these cold words.
The murderous glint in his eyes could no longer be restrained and was on the verge of erupting!
She kept her head low, fearful of meeting his eyes as she reined in a shiver.
She refused to admit her deed, but she feared denying it even more.
There were many pairs of eyes on set that had seen her in action, and with a few of them being close to this newbie, if she were to try denying it, someone was bound to step forward and point a finger to her.
Still, even if she was given more courage, she would certainly not dare admit it, too.
She was afraid of him squashing her thoroughly if she did.
By no means was this an exaggeration.
This man certainly had the ability to do so.
Mu Yazhe. This name brought fear to many. Having seized the throne at the mere age of 18, who knew how many bloodbaths and brutal obstacles he had dealt with?
He could crush her into smithereens with just a finger.
If only she had known earlier that the person backing this newcomer was him, no matter what, she would not have willingly sought to trouble her.
Mu Xi, who was standing next to them, shook with anger. Even though she did not know the identity of the man hugging her charge, she could tell that this vile actress held him in high regard. One could even say that she was terrified of him.
He had to be someone with a lofty status!
Knowing this, she was no longer daunted by the actress's background. With tears in her eyes, she pointed a finger to her. "She's the culprit – the one who hit Shishi! She was deliberately making things hard for my artiste! Shishi's doing quite fine, but she just had to seek trouble with her by requesting a real slapping scene. She used this excuse to slap my artiste a few times! Wu… wuu… wuuu… Shishi is so pitiful. This woman was clearly exacting vengeance on her through this!"
The assistant's heart-wrenching sobs stirred the rest of the people on set to corroborate her explanation. "We all saw it. Yan Bingqing did it on purpose! Even though it's just acting, and forced perspective could technically be used, she still wanted to slap her for real."
"Yes, yes, yes! One slap wasn't enough for her, too. She even pretended to forget her lines; ultimately, she slapped Shishi more times than one could count."
"Yeah! She's been targeting Yun Shishi from day one. We all know it, but… In any case, Yun Shishi is very humble and treats everyone with kindness. We all really like her."
"… Yan Bingqing truly went overboard this time. She kept making mistakes on purpose, and as time went by, her slaps only got more heavy-handed. Let's send Yun Shishi to the hospital quickly to have a look; I'm worried about her!"
"That's right! Send her to the hospital quickly! Yan Bingqing was really cruel to her. I hope that nothing untoward happens to Shishi! Otherwise, we will never forgive this actress."
The angry outbursts of the crowd piled up.
The finger-pointing of the production crew was relentless.
Many workers mustered up their courage and voiced out their perspective.
