Chapter 367: Li Shiyao’s Unspoken Troubles
EndlessFantasy Translation EndlessFantasy Translation
Qi Shan: [If you weren't the Missus, I would have dealt with you a long time ago!]
Ning Meng had initially wanted to remind Qi Shan that "a dog gains confidence from its owner's influence", but after she had seen what he had to say, she put her phone down. Let him boil on the inside by himself. Hmph!
When Ning Meng had arrived at the production company, Li Shiyao was in the middle of filming. Her acting skills were top notch. Her representation of an independent strong businesswoman was spot on, and Ning Meng marveled at her professionalism from the side.
The assistant director accompanied her and was also amazed by the performance.
"Miss Ning, I can hardly believe that she's an amateur actor! She will definitely blow-up in the entertainment scene!"
Ning Meng smiled. She thought to herself that that was for certain. She was going to be the Queen of Actresses! How could a Queen of Actresses lack any excellent acting skills while on the big screen! After watching for a while, she suddenly noticed that Boss Fei Bai was also watching from a distance, throwing glances at her.
Ning Meng was slightly stunned. After a while, Boss Fei Bai looked at her once again. Ning Meng was confused, so she picked up her phone and sent Fei Bai a WeChat text: [Is there a problem?]
Fei Bai: [Yes.]
... He could have just waved or made an expression to hint at her. How could she understand what he was thinking about if he only looked at her with a blank face?!
Ning Meng's lips twitched, and she walked toward Fei Bai. They both found a corner and sat down. Ning Meng was especially courteous toward Fei Bai. "What's up?"
Fei Bai kept mum for a while before finally saying, "She's not happy."
She gave it some thought and tried to interpret what he meant. "Are you saying that Li Shiyao is not happy? Did something happen to her?"
Fei Bai nodded.
Ning Meng held her chin. "Did you ask her why?"
Fei Bai shook his head.
"Is the male lead troubling her again?"
Fei Bai shook his head.
"Could it be that it's those few days every month that causes her to be unhappy?"
Fei Bai continued to shake his head. Ning Meng felt as though she was just talking to herself. "I'll ask her when they are taking a break later."
Fei Bai nodded in agreement. Ning Meng continued, "I'll ask her who's bullying her. When we find out who's the culprit…"
She glanced at Fei Bai and saw that his expression had turned cold in that instant. He finally spoke.
She pursed her lips and was about to walk to the side when she suddenly turned and looked at him. "You know, Boss. If we were all in a movie, your script would only need one page."
In fact, two-thirds of the script would only need one word on repeat. Kill.
Fei Bai was confused at her words. Ning Meng smiled and left to discuss with the screenwriter about the TV drama plot. She then finally saw Li Shiyao taking a break. Fei Bai put on his most gentlemanly manner and gave her some water to drink, after which, he wrapped his jacket around her. After Li Shiyao drank some of the hot water and her body had warmed up, she let out a long sigh.
Ning Meng went over and was about to ask Li Shiyao what was bothering her when they heard a strangled voice from outside.
"Let me in! I'm Li Shiyao's father! Have you forgotten your own father after you have risen through the ranks?!"
The whole incident happened so quickly that everyone in the production company looked up at the same time. It was the old couple who had been held back at the entrance of Studio City. The old lady was making a scene by acting unreasonably, crying and yelling at the top of her lungs. The old man went around the room and when he finally saw Li Shiyao, he ran toward her.
Li Shiyao's eyes widened. "Dad, what are you doing here?"
Papa Li bolted toward her and gave her a big slap on her face. "Give me the money!"
