No one would have expected that Jiang Yuning would really turn out to be a major shareholder of Xiya Hotel.
Several members of the production staff and crew suddenly reflected on their attitude and treatment towards Jiang Yuning earlier that day and they started breaking out in cold sweat. Xiya Hotel had been a gold sponsor for
How would they be able to get out of this situation when the chairman found out about it?
As soon as he thought about the repercussions, the director gave instructions to his staff immediately. &x201C;Has Jiang Yuning already gone far? Please invite her to come back to the studio now!&x201D;
The deputy director suddenly thought of what Jiang Yuning had just said before she left the studio and he trembled a little as he approached his brother. &x201C;Brother, I am afraid&x2026;that you might need to apologize to her in person. Before Jiang Yuning left, she told us that if you wanted her to return, she wants you to serve her tea and apologize to her personally.&x201D;
&x201C;What?&x201D; the director yelled. &x201C;She is really very ambitious!&x201D;
&x201C;Brother&x2026;we have already offended someone that we should not be offending. I think that it would not be beneficial to us. If we breach the contract with Guangying Media, we will be at the losing end. We will suffer huge losses when that happens,&x201D; the deputy director quickly reasoned with his brother. &x201C;Whatever it is, I think the best thing to do right now is to coax Jiang Yuning and invite her to come back to the studio.&x201D;
&x201C;Go, go, go!&x201D; the director yelled as he waved his hand impatiently. &x201C;I will just consider myself unlucky for barking up the wrong tree.&x201D;
At this time, Jiang Yuning and Vera were on the way home when Vera suddenly received a phone call from the deputy director. &x201C;Vera, we were wrong earlier. We will send someone over to pick both of you up. Why don&x2019;t you come back to the studio and we can renegotiate a new contract? I promise that we will give Yuning the popular shots and the most screen time.&x201D;
Vera was very surprised when she received the phone call and she quickly looked at Jiang Yuning, completely forgetting the fact that she was her agent.
&x201C;The director has personally requested for you to return to the studio.&x201D;
&x201C;Ask him if he remembers the condition that I had mentioned before I left the studio just now,&x201D; Jiang Yuning replied indifferently.
Vera repeated what Jiang Yuning said and the deputy director assured her immediately, &x201C;You can be rest assured that as long as Yuning agrees to come back, our director will definitely apologize to Yuning personally.&x201D;
Jiang Yuning had never intended to miss out on the opportunity to participate in the show and therefore, she said to Vera, &x201C;Let&x2019;s go back.&x201D;
&x201C;You still want to go back?&x201D; Vera asked in disbelief. &x201C;I think that the production crew were too much.&x201D;
&x201C;If you were slightly more capable, you would not have fallen for the trap set by the production team and we would have been able to avoid this situation. Didn&x2019;t you say that it would be very good to participate in this program? If that is true, then why should I give up on it so easily? Just because I want to save face? Didn&x2019;t the director try to make life difficult for me earlier? I will make his life difficult now.&x201D;
Vera could not defend herself or refute anything that Jiang Yuning said because this time, it was indeed her mistake that had led them to this situation.
Both of them quickly arrived at the studio and at this time, the deputy director ran forward to greet them with a big smile on his face.
&x201C;Yuning, I am really sorry about what happened earlier. I admit that we had gone overboard and acted way out of line. Please be rest assured that we will prepare a new contract for you.&x201D;
&x201C;I do not need you to prepare a new contract for me. All I want is for your director to apologize to me personally for everything that has happened today,&x201D; Jiang Yuning replied as she looked at the deputy director with a serious expression on her face. &x201C;I know that you guys are already accustomed to selecting the cream of the crop to participate in your program, but I think that you guys have really gone overboard this time.&x201D;
&x201C;Yuning, please wait for a moment. I will get the director to come over right now,&x201D; the deputy director quickly said as he broke out in cold sweat.
Jiang Yuning watched as the deputy director hurried off to get the director. After a few minutes, the director arrived, accompanied by the deputy director who had a cup of tea ready in his hand.
&x201C;Miss Jiang, it is not easy to keep a program such as ours running so smoothly for years. That is why I may have overreacted and offended you in the process,&x201D; the director said as he took the cup of tea from the deputy director and offered it to Jiang Yuning. &x201C;I apologize for everything that has happened today. I hope that you can be magnanimous and forgive us instead of pursuing this matter any further.&x201D;
&x201C;We can always renegotiate a better contract for you and we will definitely allocate most of the screen time during this episode to you. Is that okay with you?&x201D;
Jiang Yuning paused for a moment and did not reply. After a few moments, she finally took the cup of tea from the director&x2019;s hand before replying, &x201C;I will proceed with the recording of the program in accordance to your initial plans. I will wear the robot suit.&x201D;
Everyone present were shocked when they heard what Jiang Yuning had just said.
Didn&x2019;t she react the way she did and flaunt her power because she did not want to wear the robot suit during the program? Why was she offering to wear the robot suit now?
&x201C;Yuning, are you kidding? If you still think that we are not doing a good job, just let us know what we can improve on&x2026;&x201D;
&x201C;I will wear the robot suit,&x201D; Jiang Yuning asserted once again. &x201C;I have already forgiven you for trying to make things difficult for me since you already served me tea and apologized personally. I understand why you look down on me. It is simply because you think that I do not have any special talents or any background of any kind. To you, I am just an artiste who has already been blacklisted. My question is, if you do not give me a chance and if you do not try to get to know me at all, then how would you know that I do not have any talents or abilities?&x201D;
&x201C;I will wear the robot suit and I will make sure that I impress all of you even while my face is hidden.&x201D;
The director and the deputy director glanced at one another. Both of them instantly felt that Jiang Yuning was very temperamental indeed.
&x201C;Alright then. We will rehearse according to the original plan but Yuning, you really do not need to wear that robot suit if you do not want to&x2026;&x201D;
&x201C;I will not say something that I cannot do and I will never breach the terms of my contract. Since this contract was signed by my exclusive agent, I will treat this situation as a valuable lesson for both of us. I hope that my agent will remember what happened here today and stop being so arrogant. I want her to understand that as the artiste that she is managing, I would have to be the one paying for her own mistakes,&x201D; Jiang Yuning replied as she looked directly at Vera.
Jiang Yuning was obviously doing this to teach Vera a lesson.
After listening to Jiang Yuning&x2019;s words, the production crew and staff no longer dared to mistreat or disrespect Jiang Yuning in any way.
This was because being forced to do something and doing something willingly were two totally different concepts.
Vera watched quietly as Jiang Yuning put on the robot suit once again. She really could not comprehend Jiang Yuning at all.
When the rehearsal was about to begin, everyone watched expectantly. They all felt that it was impossible for Jiang Yuning to prove her capability while she was in a robot suit. What would she be able to do?
However, everyone was speechless and pleasantly surprised after the rehearsal.
This was because they did not expect Jiang Yuning to be so skilled at ventriloquism and to be able to make so many different sound effects according to the situation. Every move and sound that she made seemed to originate from the robot itself.
&x201C;Did Jiang Yuning really do that? Isn&x2019;t that simply incredible?&x201D;
&x201C;Everyone had been trying so hard to come up with ways to fit the robot into the program. Now, I feel as though the robot is an indispensable part of the program.&x201D;
&x201C;Isn&x2019;t Jiang Yuning amazing?&x201D;
The whole production crew were full of praises for Jiang Yuning and when Jiang Yuning finally took off the headgear, everyone could not help but applaud for Jiang Yuning who was drenched in her own sweat.
At this time, the director and the deputy director finally realized how narrow-minded they had been.
&x201C;Jiang Yuning, you have really opened up our eyes this time. I am really sorry for how I reacted before this. I hope that you will not take this to hear.&x201D; The director approached Jiang Yuning and apologized with good faith this time.
&x201C;Although I was not able to show my face in the program, I hope that you will give me the credit that I deserve and use positive propaganda to promote me,&x201D; Jiang Yuning replied as she handed the headgear over to the director.
&x201C;You can be rest assured,&x201D; the director promised immediately. &x201C;Regarding Xiya&x2026;&x201D;
&x201C;I will not withdraw the sponsorship, but I hope that you would not be so prejudiced and keep an open mind instead, so you can give other artistes like me the opportunity to participate in your program in future.&x201D;
The director and the deputy director could only exchange glances with one another because they felt as though this artiste standing before them had taught them a very valuable lesson today.
