The other only sneered at his possessive action, however.
Both men, one standing and the other sitting, exchanged challenging glances, which were of mutual harshness!
Gao Nan was naturally clueless of Mu Yazhe's identity, but being part of a superior family in the capital, he had never feared anyone!
What of the woman he wanted being taken?
As long as he set his sight on a lady, he would snatch her through any means!
Seeing this couple's arrival, a group of people quickly crowded around them.
Xiao Xue's reputation in school then had always been good. Thus, upon her arrival, many people surrounded her.
"Is this your husband?"
"No, he's my boyfriend."
"Oh, my! Is there a difference between a boyfriend and a husband?"
"We're not married yet."
"Your boyfriend is so handsome and tall! What is his job?"
"I heard Gao Nan's mother is one of Chengguang Entertainment's higher-ups."
"Ah… Oh, god! Your boyfriend must know a lot of celebrities, then!"
The man smiled. "He he! It's not too bad. Isn't there a big celebrity in your midst now?"
Everyone stared at one another in consternation.
Xiao Xue replied in delight, "Shishi, of course! Don't you guys check Weibo?"
"We're normally busy with work; who has the time to surf Weibo?" everyone reasoned.
"Ah, I just remember! There's an upcoming movie getting plenty of focus now, right? What's it called again?"
"'The Green Apple'!" Someone in the crowd slapped their head. Immediately after, the crowd turned their astonished gazes on to Yun Shishi.
"Oh, god! It just came to me now. Shishi, are you really playing a role in that movie?"
"When I checked it out before, I didn't recognize you. The styling is so different!"
"'The Green Apple'? Ah… That's the upcoming movie where my dream guy has the lead role! Are you truly the female lead in that show?"
In a moment, everyone flocked to her side again. Eyes filled with shock and envy were all on her.
Very few people who had taken a media course were able to rise in their careers.
After all, the entertainment industry was never short of talent and competition. Not everyone had the chance to achieve success.
Yun Shishi was the first.
Seeing the crowd return to Yun Shishi's side, Huang Lili was of course a little unhappy. She said sourly, "Shishi, I'm so happy for you. You were able to fulfill your dreams! Sigh… All this time, acting has been my dream. It's just that Jiayan refused to let me enter showbiz."
"Why?" someone asked attentively. "Didn't you often say before that you'd surely become an outstanding actress?"
"It's because my boyfriend said that the show industry is a foul place. Actresses in it are mostly unclean due to the unspoken rules! He's afraid that I'll get bullied. Plus, the wealthy families see this as a taboo profession. His mother said that women in showbiz are dirty entertainers."
The moment she gave that reply, Xiao Xue's complexion changed.
This woman was clearly implying that her friend was such an entertainer!
While she seemed to be saying that it was the entertainment industry that was dirty on the surface, between the lines, she was clearly mockingly expressing that her friend was a dirty entertainer!
Everyone understood her intended meaning as well; thus, it inevitably resulted in an awkward atmosphere.
Only Yun Shishi remained seated with a calm and nonchalant expression. There was no hint of anger on her face.
Huang Lili quickly tried to rectify her words. "Ah! Oh, my! Why did I say such a thing? Shishi, please don't misunderstand! I didn't intend to direct this at you!"
