Chapter 140: Pretend She is Crazy!
Early the next morning, Vera briefed Jiang Yuning on what she discovered about Mu Xian. Jiang Yuning did not know how to react because she had never encountered any issues with Mu Xian in the past. Furthermore, their star planning routes were completely free of conflicts from one another. Therefore, Jiang Yuning could not comprehend why Mu Xian would hate her so much.
&x201C;According to Director Shen, there was an incident that had occurred between Mu Xian and yourself, but you might not be aware of it. She thinks that you were the one who snatched the role of the third female lead from her. She was the other artiste from Guangying Media who had auditioned with Director Shen Guobang,&x201D; Vera informed Jiang Yuning over the phone.
&x201C;I see,&x201D; Jiang Yuning replied as she sighed. &x201C;So, what does Director Shen intend to do about this matter?&x201D;
&x201C;Come over to the company so we can discuss this matter.&x201D;
&x201C;Since she has a reason to hate me, then I will not bother going anymore. I will leave it up to Director Shen to deal with it however he deems fit. The filming of
will begin soon and I want to go over to Grandpa Tan&x2019;s house to learn more about Chinese medicine from him. I do not want to waste any time on any unnecessary person who does not matter,&x201D; Jiang Yuning responded immediately.
&x201C;You&x2026;don&x2019;t you hate her?&x201D;
&x201C;Why should I hate her? She is not qualified enough to be hated by me. I do not even know how she looks like. Furthermore, I believe that Director Shen will know best on how to deal with this matter.&x201D;
Jiang Yuning did not want to waste any of her time on that kind of garbage.
&x201C;Alright then. I will discuss this matter with Director Shen later,&x201D; Vera assured Jiang Yuning.
In a big company such as Guangying Media, whenever there was a conflict between two artistes, the company would usually measure the pros and cons before they took any actions. Generally, if the artistes had a similar background, the company would then step up and ensure that the artistes could work things out between one another. If the difference in their background is relatively different, then the big fish will trump over the small shrimp&x2014;the artiste with no notable background and power would unfortunately be cast aside.
Vera wanted to know whether Jiang Yuning was a big fish&x2026;or a small shrimp.
Therefore, when she arrived at the company, she knocked on Shen Yichen&x2019;s office door before entering. &x201C;Yuning said that she would not be coming today. She has asked you to decide on the course of action on her behalf.&x201D;
&x201C;Alright then. Come with me.&x201D; Shen Yichen stood up immediately as he brought Vera with him as they headed towards Mu Xian&x2019;s dressing room.
&x201C;Hello, Director Shen. What brings you here today? Why have you come to look for me personally?&x201D; Mu Xian asked as she looked at Shen Yichen&x2019;s reflection in her dressing mirror.
&x201C;I have already transferred the role that you got a few days ago over to another artiste. You can take a break. You do not need to report for work for the next three months,&x201D; Shen Yichen said coldly as he stared directly at Mu Xian.
&x201C;You know very well what you have done. I do not see the need for me to list everything out right now.&x201D;
&x201C;Director Shen, have you forgotten that I have a strong backer supporting me?&x201D; Mu Xian yelled as she stood up and faced Shen Yichen.
&x201C;Then, I also want you to know that Jiang Yuning is someone that Chairman Gu is protecting personally. You are lucky that the crisis has been successfully resolved this time. If Jiang Yuning had gotten into trouble because of you, you would not merely be asked to stop work for three months, but you would be blacklisted in the whole entertainment industry,&x201D; Shen Yichen replied in a loud, fierce, and cold manner.
&x201C;It would not be wise for you to go up against Jiang Yuning. Do not be blinded by your greed and insecurities. Think twice before making any more stupid moves.&x201D;
After he had finished speaking, Shen Yichen walked out of Mu Xian&x2019;s dressing room together with Vera.
This was undoubtedly the most severe type of warning that could be given to Mu Xian.
Mu Xian was so infuriated and angry that she pushed all the cosmetics off the dressing table and directly onto the floor. &x201C;I will continue fighting her! You can control what I do to Jiang Yuning in this company, but you cannot control what I do as soon as I step out of this company!&x201D;
So, was she going to complain to her gold sponsor?
Vera was extremely surprised at how Shen Yichen had dealt with the situation. Since Mu Xian also had a sponsor who was supporting her, the company should not have favoured Jiang Yuning directly. However, Shen Yichen did not give face to Mu Xian at all.
Furthermore, Shen Yichen made it very clear that Gu Pingsheng was in fact the person who wanted to protect Jiang Yuning.
&x201C;Director Shen&x2026;what exactly is the relationship between Jiang Yuning and Chairman&x2026;&x201D;
&x201C;Don&x2019;t be so curious and don&x2019;t ask so many questions. Just make sure you do your job well,&x201D; Shen Yichen interrupted Vera before she could finish asking her question.
In fact, Shen Yichen and Jiang Yuning had already spoken over the phone earlier that day. The reason why Shen Yichen had directly announced that Gu Pingsheng was on Jiang Yuning&x2019;s side was to provide Vera an opportunity to frame Jiang Yuning.
Jiang Yuning did not want to wait anymore. She wanted to take the initiative to find out what Vera&x2019;s true intentions were. She wanted to discover if Vera was really here to help or to destroy her.
Vera did not ask any more questions but she started to have some doubts about Jiang Yuning.
Their chairman&x2019;s surname was Gu. Therefore, Jiang Yuning was obviously not related to him in any way&x2026;unless they were involved in some sort of underground relationship.
That would definitely explain why Shen Yichen protected Jiang Yuning without giving face to Mu Xian at all.
After receiving this piece of information, Vera took out her cell phone and scrolled her contacts to look for Yin Qingyu&x2019;s phone number as soon as she left the company. However, she was hesitant to press the dial button when she reached the contact number.
This was because she knew that Jiang Yuning was not that kind of person. Jiang Yuning was definitely not that kind of person.
Vera could not understand why she had such confidence in Jiang Yuning. However, ever since she spent some time with Jiang Yuning, she realized that Jiang Yuning was in fact a very good person.
She was not a bully. She was not revengeful and she was not in the least bit arrogant at all.
She was brave, decisive, and also very determined to do whatever she had set her mind on.
She did not dwell on the past and she did not waste any unnecessary time trying to take revenge on anyone who tried to frame or set her up.
She had a strong personality and even though she could be very fierce at times, she did not mean any harm at all.
Mutual respect was an important aspect of her life.
After thinking about it, Vera put down her cell phone and drove away from the parking lot of Guangying Media.
There were some people who just seemed to be annoying, but after getting to know them, they could turn out to be really cute.
This was so much more authentic in comparison to artistes who were so hypocritical in real life.
Forget it. She would just pretend that she was crazy!
Jiang Yuning had deliberately thrown a bait in Vera&x2019;s direction because she wanted to see if Vera would act on it. However, Jiang Yuning felt extremely uneasy after doing that because she hated temptation, whether for someone else or herself.
As soon as she thought about it, Jiang Yuning called Vera immediately after she was done with her class for the day. &x201C;Come and meet me at Grandpa Tan&x2019;s house. I need to talk to you.&x201D;
&x201C;I am already on the way there. I will see you in ten minutes,&x201D; Vera replied immediately.
Vera did not know why but she had a hunch that she would finally get some answers tonight. She had some sort of expectations that if she picked Jiang Yuning up today, she would be able to get the answers that she desperately wanted.
About ten minutes later, Jiang Yuning saw Vera&x2019;s car stopping right in front of Grandpa Tan&x2019;s house.
Jiang Yuning brought Vera to the garden up front because she knew that Vera was allergic and did not like the smell of herbs.
&x201C;Take a seat&x2026;I believe you have a lot of questions that you want to ask me,&x201D; Jiang Yuning said as she stood in front of the stone table. She looked at Vera before she continued speaking, &x201C;I will let you ask me anything you want today but Vera, I want you to know that I will only open up to you once. You will never have another chance like this.&x201D;
Vera looked at Jiang Yuning with a serious expression on her face. After a short moment, Vera nodded before she asked, &x201C;What is the relationship between you and Chairman Gu?&x201D;
