Her uncaring tone revealed how oblivious she was to the grave trouble she was in now!
Her agent was thoroughly vexed!
This Yan Bingqing had gone from bad to worse ever since her popularity had reached the ceiling.
He knew her temperament well enough to reckon that she would get into trouble sooner or later. However, of all people, never had he expected her to offend the grand heir of the Mu family; this was simply her seeking trouble!
His chest undulated with anger. Perspiring profusely, he anxiously paced back and forth in the room. Finally, with a long sigh, he sat down before the woman and tried to talk some sense into her. "Bingqing, don't be too headstrong. If it were someone else you have offended, I might still be able to handle this matter for you, but it happened to be Mu Yazhe this time. No PR team is powerful enough to save you if he bans you!"
She was not totally convinced. "Is he that powerful?"
"What do you think?!" He widened his eyes at her. "Not only is he the grand heir to the rich and powerful Disheng Financial Group, he also occupies the highest seat in it. No one will say 'no' to him if he bans you!"
"Why would he do that?! Yun Shishi is just a rookie in Huanyu, whereas I'm the number one actress around! Would Huanyu ban me just for a newbie with no track record?! I'm the biggest money tree in the company now; why would they want to ban me?!" Out of control, she let loose a string of interrogation.
He kept quiet for a change.
"Speak! Why? Why would they want to ban me?"
"There are no whys in this industry!" He smirked. "Yan Bingqing, don't you know the rules after being here for so many years? There are so many more out there who are prettier, more beautiful, and more capable than you are, but why do you receive the most attention among them? There is no 'why' here, and there's only one reason for your popularity!"
Growing agitated, he stood up and went on. "It's because you met me when you made your debut and have Yang Shoucheng as your backer! Don't you understand that? This industry doesn't look at your capability, but how powerful and influential your support is! Well, you lose in this regard! The only smart move left for you is to seek Yun Shishi's forgiveness at the hospital; do you get it now?!"
She was dumbfounded.
"I've spent plenty of resources and leg work to repackage your public image. I'm the one who did all the dirty work to clear the scandals about you! You are finally famous, but do you know how difficult it was to bring you to where you are now? You are all smug about your current position, aren't you? You bring me nothing but trouble! You can't just go around offending others; still, why, of all people, must you step on the toe of Mu Yazhe?! Yan Bingqing, can you behave yourself for once! I repackaged your image to roll more money in and not to splurge it, instead! I've yet to recoup the capital I've invested in you, you know!"
She watched him dumbly with ashen face.
He ignored the sinking look on her face and merely continued speaking coldly. "You can try to maintain your image before the public, but don't act high and mighty in front of me! Do you really take yourself as a princess? To me, you are just a commodity. I want to see my returns with the money I've invested in you. Why do I invest so much in you if I won't get any return?! I can make you or sink you. Yan Bingqing, don't drive me into a corner, or I'll turn around and bite! Don't blame me for being so unsentimental if that happens! Let's see how much more you want to make things difficult for me!"
"You watch your words!"
He had greatly antagonized her by now. Snickering, she coolly refuted, "That's right; I may have been a commodity, but haven't I contributed as well? When you told me to cater to those big bosses' needs, didn't I do just that? I entertained them, slept with them, and let them do all kinds of things to me… I've given myself to others for their enjoyment, haven't I? Mo Yan, don't you push me here, too!"
