An Youqing stabilized a little after practicing at the side but after they resumed filming, An Youqing came to the realization that Jiang Yuning was in an even more invested state this time. Moreover, An Youqing realized that Jiang Yuning had not used any force when she slapped her earlier.
This time, when Jiang Yuning&x2019;s slap fell across her face, the corner of An Youqing&x2019;s mouth started bleeding immediately.
When An Youqing&x2019;s assistant witnessed what happened, she was shocked and she quickly ran over to An Youqing. &x201C;Director, director, Youqing is injured&x2026;&x201D;
The director continue sitting in his chair before he took a deep breath at this time. The frustration that he was feeling could be seen through his eyes. &x201C;Alright! We will stop filming today. Everyone can go back and rest now.&x201D;
All the hard work that the production crew had put in for the entire afternoon was all in vain because of An Youqing and all of her NGs.
After hearing the director&x2019;s words, An Youqing&x2019;s assistant quickly helped her out of the filming set.
At this time, the young paparazzo also rushed over to Jiang Yuning. &x201C;Sister Yuning, does your hand hurt? Let me have a look at it.&x201D;
Jiang Yuning did not reply the young paparazzo&x2019;s question but she continued staring at An Youqing&x2019;s back as she left the filming set. She could feel An Youqing&x2019;s determination.
When Jiang Yuning started filming
As she thought about this, Jiang Yuning quickly chased after An Youqing.
In any case, putting all private grievances aside, Jiang Yuning could tell that An Youqing was serious about her role in
&x201C;Sister Yuning&x2026;where are you going?&x201D;
An Youqing had been holding back her tears and when she saw Jiang Yuning approaching her, she could not stop herself from pushing her away immediately. &x201C;You can stop pretending already. You don&x2019;t need to be a hypocrite.&x201D;
&x201C;If I am really basking in joy because of your failure, then I would not be chasing after you at all. If someone really cared about you, then those people who have been constantly flattering you all the time should be surrounding you right now. If you really think that your self-esteem has been seriously affected, then I feel that you should just listen to what I am going to say to you. Otherwise, you will never be able to hear any truthful words or advice as long as you are in this cast. If no one is here to tell you the truth, then you will never be able to improve yourself,&x201D; Jiang Yuning said as she looked at An Youqing.
An Youqing stopped talking as she wiped the tears off her face.
&x201C;Youqing&x2026;why don&x2019;t you listen to what Sister Yuning has to say? You have nothing to lose anyway, right?&x201D; An Youqing&x2019;s assistant suggested when she saw the interaction between both of them. After that, the assistant left so that the both of them could continue talking.
The young paparazzo who was standing not too far away, glared at An Youqing who was rolling her eyes at Jiang Yuning at this time. Well, you really don&x2019;t know that it is your honor that Sister Yuning is willing to waste her time on you, do you?
To think that An Youqing was still putting on airs at this time.
&x201C;I know that you have always felt that I have some unspeakable secret and that I am having a secret affair with the director. Am I right? Well, do you really think that I need to dedicate myself to the director when I am an artiste under Guangying Media, and especially when I have such a close relationship with Hou Da? You should not forget the fact that I am also a very popular artiste right now.&x201D;
&x201C;Yes, I know that you are a college graduate from one of the most prestigious acting school and I am just a nobody who even acted in several lousy drama productions. However, you have to admit that I have much more experience than you do and I have also acted alongside several film emperors in the past. I think that it is not that surprising that I actually got the role of the first female lead. On the other hand, it is even more unbelievable that a mere college graduate like you could actually secure the role of the second female lead in your very first drama production. Do you know how many people are actually feeling envious of you now?&x201D;
&x201C;But it seems as though you are not satisfied or contented with your achievements at all. Do you really think that you have the ability to pull me down and override me?&x201D;
As far as this morning&x2019;s performance was concerned, An Youqing knew that she had already been completely defeated.
Jiang Yuning&x2019;s acting skills were not as bad as what the netizens and public made it out to be.
&x201C;I don&x2019;t need you to respect me, but you have to respect the role you are playing. You have to understand the feelings and emotions that your character is feeling inside. Do you really think that you will be able to take on the role of the first female lead even if the director or Hou Da really chose to replace me? Why would the director take on such a huge risk when you are an unknown actress?&x201D;
&x201C;You should go back and take a good rest today before deciding on what you really want. When you wake up tomorrow, I hope that you will be able to work hard towards your goal and ambitions.&x201D;
&x201C;I can forget and forgive the incident where you intentionally revealed my whereabouts to the media, and where you are storing many videos of Lu Jingqi to use against the Lu family. But An Youqing, you have to figure out something on your own. You will not be able to pull me down or take away the status that I have achieved by doing all these things behind my back. The only thing that you are seeking is death by messing around with the Lu family. The person that you are acting for is merely using you as a tool to carry out his dirty work. Why would you take this kind of risk and possibly ruin the rest of your career?&x201D;
An Youqing was caught off guard when she heard Jiang Yuning mentioning Lu Jingqi&x2019;s videos and she turned around to look at her assistant with a shocked expression on her face.
&x201C;Yes, I tricked your assistant into telling me the truth but she had no intentions of hurting you at all.&x201D;
&x201C;Since you already know that I am the one who leaked out the video of the young master of the Lu family, so why didn&x2019;t you report it to the Lu family then? I know that you already know that I have more of such videos in my cell phone&x2026;&x201D;
&x201C;So, what if you had more videos of Jingqi?&x201D; Jiang Yuning chuckled as she interrupted An Youqing before she could finish her sentence. &x201C;Does the person behind you really think that the Lu family would be humiliated just because of these videos? Yes, I cannot deny that everyone in the entertainment industry are gossiping about this matter right now but gossip will always remain gossip. Who would dare to act against the Lu family? Who would dare to mention this matter or even bring up Lu Jingqi&x2019;s name in front of the Lu family?&x201D;
&x201C;In fact, why are you trying to use me to bring the Lu family down? Even if you successfully defeat or humiliate me today, do you really think that it would have any effect on the Lu family at all?&x201D;
&x201C;This kind of behavior is just sloppy and childish. You should just stop playing these games if you are really concerned about your own future.&x201D;
&x201C;I am someone who has achieved everything that I have today after crawling out of hell. I have seen much more of this world than you have ever experienced, An Youqing. So, it is really up to you if you insist on toying with me.&x201D;
An Youqing thought about Jiang Yuning&x2019;s words and she wanted to say something in defence, but decided against it in the end as she felt that it was unnecessary anyway.
In the end, An Youqing finally replied with one simple sentence.
&x201C;I will stop acting out against you but I cannot guarantee that there wouldn&x2019;t be anyone else.&x201D;
After that, An Youqing signaled for her assistant before both of them walked away from Jiang Yuning together.
When the young paparazzo saw them leaving, he quickly approached Jiang Yuning as he handed a glass of water to her. &x201C;Sister Yuning, drink some water. You must be thirsty.&x201D;
&x201C;Thank you,&x201D; Jiang Yuning replied as she took the glass of water in her hands. In fact, she was really thirsty at this time.
&x201C;Do you really think that An Youqing will take your words to heart?&x201D;
&x201C;I know that she is a smart girl. She knows what is best for herself.&x201D;
Later in the evening, Vera called Jiang Yuning to confirm the scheduling of the next episode of
Jiang Yuning listened attentively before she asked Vera some questions about Lu Jingqi.
&x201C;I have some videos of Jingqi&x2019;s training. I will send them to you later. Wang Jing is very satisfied with Jingqi&x2019;s progress,&x201D; Vera replied immediately.
Everything was perfect if Wang Jing was satisfied.
After that, Jiang Yuning removed her makeup before she looked at the time on her watch. It was almost time for her man to get off work. Therefore, she made a video call to Lu Jingzhi immediately.
At this time, Lu Jingzhi had just gotten into his car and it was a little dim in the car.
&x201C;Wow, hello Principal Lu. I have not seen you in such a long time. Do you miss me?&x201D;
The image of Lu Jingzhi was a little blurry and his voice sounded a little robotic because of the reception.
&x201C;Are you feeling an itch?&x201D;
This was the first time that Jiang Yuning had addressed him as &x2018;Principal Lu&x2019; and somehow, it made Lu Jingzhi feel a little excited.
&x201C;Second Brother, I will be going back to Luo City to film the next episode of
&x201C;Okay.&x201D; Lu Jingzhi nodded.
Jiang Yuning did not think that Lu Jingzhi was a boring person at all even though his replies were simple. This was because Lu Jingzhi had never been a very talkative person. However, when it came to his feelings for her, Jiang Yuning knew how passionate he could be.
As she thought about it, a lot of thoughts suddenly flooded Jiang Yuning&x2019;s mind.
No. She should not be thinking about it now.
