"I can't afford such an exorbitant gift."
"Who can that be, then?"
Her manager gave her a side-eye; his gaze was covert.
She carefully tested. "Mu Yazhe?"
"Other than that person, who else can it be?"
"It… doesn't seem right for me to accept this." She felt a little hesitant.
In the production team, Yang Mi and Gu Xingze had nanny vans. Owning a nanny van seemed to be a symbol of status for celebrities in the industry.
With a nanny van, she could rest inside for a while after filming.
Yan Bingqing had one, too, yet she still wanted to fight with her for the waiting room.
However, owning a nanny van when she had just debuted recently would inevitably invite gossip.
"What are you afraid of? Whoever dares to gossip about you will be banned."
She was tickled pink by his bold and generous manner.
He, then, simply explained to her for a bit.
Her man apparently was worried that she would feel tired from filming and be unable to rest properly; thus, he bought her a nanny van.
The nanny van was a recreational vehicle (RV).
The car was parked at the production site's carpark.
Qin Zhou brought her to look at it. The interior of the nanny van was luxurious and had amenities like the washroom, dining room, TV, audiovisual, refrigerator, vanity table, and so on.
Although there was not much expression on her face, her heart was filled with sweetness!
The man was actually so thoughtful and worried about her tiring from filming.
When she finished filming in the afternoon, Mu Xi told her that there were people waiting for her outside.
"Who are they?"
Shaking her head, her assistant replied, "I don't know them; it's a man and a woman. They couldn't enter the production site, so they got someone to pass the message of them having an urgent matter to discuss with you."
Her filming had ended as well. She thought, It must be important if they went all the way to here to look for me.
Walking out of the set, she spotted Du Jiayan and Huang Lili standing at the entrance from afar. They immediately schooled their faces into a flattering look upon seeing her.
Their overly sycophantic smiles were meant to curry favor with her.
The woman promptly stepped forward to receive her, first, by handing a bottle of lemonade and, second, by rubbing her palms together. "Shishi… You must be tired from filming; do drink some lemonade first!"
Looking down, she eyed the bottle in her hand and felt a little startled.
This bottle of drink was of a good brand and was especially expensive, costing a lot per bottle. It was obvious that she was fawning on her!
Still, one who was unaccountably solicitous had to be hiding evil intentions, no?
Hence, without further looking at it, she dumped it in the trash bin and blandly said, "I'm sorry; I'm afraid that it's poisoned."
The smile on the other woman's face faltered, but she only laughed in the end. "Look at you! What are you saying? How can there be poison in the drink? Shishi, you really love to joke!"
"Why did you two find your way here?"
She was a little wary of them.
Ever since the last class reunion, she had received many text messages from her former classmates. She joined their WeChat group out of courtesy; Huang Lili had been kicked out of it. Regarding the happenings on that day, everyone had a tacit agreement not to mention it. All were acting overly friendly toward her.
It's probably about what happened that day! she guessed.
With an anxious face and awkward laughter, Du Jiayan came forward, too. "Shishi, I'm sorry for disturbing you. Please don't be offended. This isn't a place for us to chat; why don't we move this talk to a quiet place?"
