&x201C;Brother Xuan, why won&x2019;t you let me chat with Sister Yuning for a little while? It was not easy for me to finally have the opportunity to meet her,&x201D; An Yiqing pouted as she asked her agent with a puzzled expression on her face.
&x201C;You are a film and television graduate from a reputable university. Director Shen has very high expectations of you. Jiang Yuning is meanwhile just an artiste who has become a little bit famous because of a variety program. How could she even be compared to you?&x201D; the agent reminded An Yiqing in a serious manner. &x201C;Just focus on your own acting. How long do you think someone like Jiang Yuning will be famous for?&x201D;
&x201C;If she could gain some fame for herself, even if through a variety show, then it must be due to her own talents and abilities,&x201D; An Yiqing replied as she did not agree with her agent&x2019;s opinion.
The both of them spoke quietly at a corner. Although their voices were clearly soft, there was also a hint of harshness in their words.
In fact, Jiang Yuning and Vera already knew what was running through the agent&x2019;s mind.
They already knew that in the eyes of the other artistes signed under Guangying Media, Jiang Yuning was someone who did not belong in the same circle or class as them. The contempt that they had in their eyes was unmistakable.
&x201C;You have already given your best and worked very hard to turn your own situation around. This is not your fault,&x201D; Vera said as she tried to appease Jiang Yuning. &x201C;And as long as it is not a matter relating to your character, there is no one who can judge you or think that they are more superior than you.&x201D;
Jiang Yuning laughed slightly and tried not to be affected by the situation. At this time, a woman who was dressed glamorously in a red dress walked over to Jiang Yuning before she said, &x201C;Yuning, do you know how to dance?&x201D;
&x201C;Sister Hua Xin, I would not want to embarrass myself in front of you,&x201D; Jiang Yuning answered immediately.
&x201C;It is a rare opportunity that I am offering you so you can help to cheer everyone up tonight. After all, all of us believe that you are a very versatile artiste with many different unexpected talents. If you refuse to show us some of your talents, does that mean that you are not giving us face?&x201D;
The other party continued challenging Jiang Yuning and at this time, Vera suddenly stepped forward to defend Jiang Yuning. &x201C;Sister Hua Xin, please be more lenient towards Yuning today. How can she dance when she is wearing such high heels right now? Maybe she can show you a dance next time?&x201D;
&x201C;If your heels are high&x2026;you can just take them off. Yuning, don&x2019;t you agree with me?&x201D; Hua Xin asked as she smiled coldly at Jiang Yuning.
This was clearly malice, and Hua Xin was no longer doing this just to humiliate Jiang Yuning. At this time, Jiang Yuning also laughed as she replied, &x201C;Sister Hua Xin, I am just an insignificant junior who should not be hindering you or getting in your way at this banquet tonight. I hope that we will not have any conflict because I do not want things to get ugly between us.&x201D;
&x201C;Since you have already acknowledged that you are my junior, why are you rejecting my invitation then? Are you really not going to give me any face at all?&x201D;
After listening to Hua Xin&x2019;s words, Vera was about to pull Jiang Yuning away from the confrontation but at this time, Jiang Yuning pushed Vera aside before she dropped the glass of champagne that she held in her hand all along. Everyone turned around and cast their eyes on both Jiang Yuning and Hua Xin as soon as they heard the sound of the glass shattering as it hit the ground.
&x201C;Do you really think that I have so much respect for you just because I am addressing you as my senior? Are you qualified enough to even ask me to dance for you?&x201D; After speaking, Jiang Yuning took one of her ATM cards out before she threw it at Hua Xin. &x201C;There is two million yuan in this card alone. Why don&x2019;t you take the money and dance for me instead? After all&x2026;how much money have you actually made even after acting in so many different dramas?&x201D;
&x201C;You&x2026;&x201D; Hua Xin was stunned.
This was because no one would have expected Jiang Yuning to have the courage to act in this manner.
This young artiste was ferocious. Hua Xin initially assumed that it would be easy to bully and humiliate Jiang Yuning, as the newer and younger artistes would usually be picked on a lot and would always give in to all of their seniors&x2019; request to avoid any trouble in future. However, Jiang Yuning was completely different. She immediately stood up for herself because she refused to be bullied.
&x201C;Hua Xin, did you know that even if I do not continue being an artiste or actress, I already have enough money to last me for this lifetime. It is not very wise of you to come and offend me and try to humiliate me. I believe that since we are working under the same company, we should have mutual respect for one another. I might respect you, but that does not mean that I am afraid of you.&x201D;
Hua Xin&x2019;s face was as red as a tomato and she fidgeted because she did not expect to be placed in such an awkward situation. She had never imagined that a young artiste such as Jiang Yuning, who was her junior, would actually dare to teach her a lesson.
This was especially embarrassing because everyone had their eyes on them at the moment. Hua Xin was at a loss for words and in that instant, all that she could do was to point her finger at Jiang Yuning and say, &x201C;You have guts!&x201D;
It would have been completely fine if Hua Xin did not say those words because Jiang Yuning was even more annoyed as soon as she heard those words.
Sorry, you can&x2019;t escape anymore.
Therefore, Jiang Yuning yelled directly at Hua Xin. &x201C;Stop! Don&x2019;t move. Vera, please get Chairman Gu to come over here.&x201D;
Even though Vera did not know what Jiang Yuning was going to do, she quickly did as she was instructed to. After a short while, Gu Pingsheng walked out from the living room and into the garden before he walked towards both of them. &x201C;Young lass, what is the problem?&x201D;
&x201C;Chairman Gu, when I joined Guangying Media as one of your artistes, you promised that you would give me a fair and just treatment. But now, Hua Xin wants me to take off my high heels and dance for her. Does she think that I am a monkey who is here to entertain her? Am I here to make her happy?&x201D;
&x201C;Chairman Gu&x2026;&x201D; Hua Xin said as she tried to explain herself. &x201C;We were just trying to include our junior, Yuning, in the crowd because we saw that she was all alone. The situation is not as bad as she has just made it out to be. This is all just a misunderstanding.&x201D;
&x201C;Do you dare to say that you were not trying to make things difficult for me?&x201D; Jiang Yuning asked Hua Xin immediately. &x201C;You told me that if my high heels were too high&x2026;I could just take off my high heels and dance for you. Are you saying that you did not say that?&x201D;
Gu Pingsheng knew Jiang Yuning&x2019;s personality and temper very well and he knew that if the other party had not bullied her and gone overboard, Jiang Yuning would never have reacted in this manner, especially in front of so many people.
Hua Xin must have started the confrontation with Jiang Yuning.
Both of them had very unequal statuses in Guangying Media because Hua Xin had already been under Guangying Media&x2019;s management for a very long time.
Everyone who was watching the spectacle was certain that Chairman Gu would definitely take Hua Xin&x2019;s side in the end. After all, the weight and importance that both Hua Xin and Jiang Yuning held in Guangying Media was incomparable.
Jiang Yuning was a little too self-conceited.
However, much to everyone&x2019;s surprise, Gu Pingsheng glanced at both of them before he looked at Hua Xin and asked, &x201C;Do you really like to watch other people dancing so much? Would you like me to dance for you too?&x201D;
&x201C;How many years have you been signed under Guangying Media already? When you first entered Guangying Media as a new artiste, had anyone insulted you like this?&x201D;
Hua Xin did not speak as she lowered her head. She did not dare to look at Gu Pingsheng at this time.
&x201C;I can vaguely remember that when you first entered Guangying Media, you were still very young and fresh&x2026;&x201D;
&x201C;But I am an actress.&x201D;
&x201C;Are you so noble and great just because you are an actress? If you really are so noble, then why are you doing things to humiliate others?&x201D; Gu Pingsheng questioned Hua Xin directly. &x201C;Can you really have a clear conscience by acting in this manner? Have you forgotten how hard you had to struggle to achieve everything that you have now? Have you already been blinded and brainwashed just because you have achieved some fame? She&x2026;&x201D;
At this time, Gu Pingsheng pointed a finger at Jiang Yuning before he continued, &x201C;&x2026;did not steal or grab any resources or attention from anyone else. Instead, she relied on her own strength and worked hard to clean up her reputation, and she finally got to where she is right now even though she was just a backlisted artiste whom everyone despised a few months ago. Do you think that you would be able to do the same? Do you really think that you are so amazing just because you can act?&x201D;
&x201C;You can look down on others and you can even judge anyone whom you want to judge, but tell me, how great could your personality be if you look down on others like that? Who are you to think that you are more superior than others? Tell me, who gave you the right to look down on others?&x201D;
Hua Xin was completely at a loss for words in the face of Gu Pingsheng&x2019;s loud questioning. She had a shocked expression and tears started flowing down her face.
At this time, Lu Jingzhi suddenly entered the front door of Gu Pingsheng&x2019;s house.
Everyone turned around and stared at Lu Jingzhi as though a god had just entered the house. Why would Lu Jingzhi come here today? It was definitely Lu Jingzhi.
Could they&x2026;have mistaken someone else for him?
