She raised her head and gave the embracing father-son pair a questioning gaze.
Her focus was solely on Youyou just then, so she failed to hear the two's exchange.
Smiling mysteriously, Little Yichen said, "It's a secret!"
Mu Yazhe had placed Yan Bingqing under temporary suspension ever since that slapping incident on set.
Alas, ignorant to the seriousness of the matter, she was unafraid.
After all, she still had her powerful backing. She refused to believe that the man would knock her down just because of Yun Shishi.
He was just trying to scare her; that was all.
Moreover, even if everybody were to claim that she had intentionally slapped the newbie, what could happen?
Was there any evidence?
What of there being several recordings of that scene? When the time came, she could claim that she had been too caught up in her acting, so she had failed to notice how hard she was slapping her co-actress.
If the man tried to suppress her using the media, she could easily push this matter aside completely.
With her status and her fanbase, how could she lose against a newly debuted actress?
She consoled herself by saying that it was fine and that everything would be okay again after this ordeal was over.
Inwardly, she could tell that the two's relationship was extremely good.
Most men in the high society seemed to prefer pure and refined women like Yun Shishi. It was highly likely that Mu Yazhe was the newbie's sugar daddy-cum-supporter.
Still, the possibility of the man being serious with that newcomer was practically non-existent.
One must know that he was the crown prince of the capital's wealthiest family. Old Mu had already given his directive that actresses should not dream about entering his family registry.
What did that mean? It meant that any women in show business had no right to marry into the Mu family.
Mu Yazhe was just playing around with Yun Shishi.
Even if that newcomer was a vixen reincarnate with her ability to seduce any type of men, what of it?
The Mu family's threshold was too high. Would she be able to cross it?
Did the man not have a fiancée already? Even though it may just be a title, no one would be able to change their relationship.
If the man dared to protect the newcomer openly by knocking her down, there was no way that Old Mu would just stand aside as news spread into the Mu family.
Nonetheless, every time Yan Bingqing thought of the way he had looked at the newcomer that day, coupled with his scarlet eyes and terrifying aura, she would lose just a bit of her confidence.
She kept getting this feeling that Yun Shishi's place in that man's heart was not that superficial.
Each time she thought of that, she still would feel some regret! If she had known that there was a relationship between the two, she would not have laid a finger on her no matter what!
Now, she could only wait for this ordeal to blow over as fast as possible.
Lin Fengtian had handed over the recordings of that day's incident to Disheng.
Mu Yazhe carefully went through them.
His eyes gradually darkened as he watched them one by one. With a frosty look, his thin lips pressed into a grim line.
The man's assistant watched from the sidelines with a furious frown.
Deliberate. It had been deliberate.
Those involved in the matter might be blinded to the truth, but those that were not could easily see it clearly.
Yan Bingqing was probably still unaware of exactly how much strength she had used, but from an outsider's perspective, the crisp sounds of her slaps were frighteningly loud.
Just from watching that shocking scene, one could empathize to the scalding sensation of being slapped in the face.
The actress had outrightly claimed that she had just been too caught up in her acting, but from a third party's eyes, it was clear that she had done it on purpose!
