“Sister Mian, my sister…” Xixi paused midsentence .
“It’s okay . If you can’t tell me, I won’t ask . ”
“No, it’s not something I can’t tell you . My sister told Su Yu she loved him and was rejected…” Xixi blurted out .
“Um…” Huo Mian didn’t know what to say .
“It’s my fault because I encouraged her to do it . She has loved Su Yu for so long and suffered alone without telling him how she felt about him, so I encouraged her to confess her love to him . I hoped she’d give up on him if he rejected her . But I didn’t expect she’d be so upset by his rejection . She cried all night last night with eyes all swollen up . She even posted on Weibo that she’d take a break from her work . It seems my sister has a fragile heart . But…it’s not a bad thing . I talked to my parents and think it’s a good idea for her to take a break since she won’t be focused on her work anyway . ”
“I see . ”
“Yeah . ”
“I’m sympathetic towards your sister . Su Yu is stubborn… and not easy to talk to . Your sister is a good girl, but love can’t be forced . ”
“Yeah . Sister Mian, I’ve been in love . I know how it feels . ”
“Don’t worry . Comfort your sister . ”
“Okay . Oh, by the way, Sister Mian, Rick and I want to invite you and President Qin to dinner tonight . ”
“Whoa . I’m flattered…” Huo Mian chuckled .
“We’ll be leaving on tomorrow morning’s flight . ”
“You’re returning so soon?” Huo Mian was reluctant to see them go .
“It’s not so soon . If not for you, I might not have had the opportunity to stay here for so long . Now that you’re safe and I’ve visited my family, Rick needs to return to the U . S . since lots of things are waiting for him . You know how his work is like . ”
“I understand . Then let’s meet at dinner . Text the time and address to me on WeChat . ”
“Okay . See you tonight . ”
“See you tonight . ”
Ending the call, Huo Mian thought about Nie Lingxuan’s departure .
She knew Su Yu wouldn’t accept Nie Lingxuan’s love since he wasn’t ready to accept any women right now .
But she was worried that the list actress that Su Yu’s Imperial Star had painstakingly promoted had quit her job .
Who would take the helm for Imperial Star?
It was indeed a problem…
But Huo Mian wouldn’t go and talk to Su Yu about this problem because she didn’t want to interfere in his business .
If they were seen by others, people might get the wrong idea about their relationship . So she decided to talk to Su Yu about it when she saw him .
– Inside the president’s office of Imperial Star –
The vice president kept pushing up her glasses on her nose . In her forties, this woman was efficient and very capable .
Su Yu had stolen her from another company at a high price .
The vice president didn’t agree to letting Nie Lingxuan go abroad and study .
“President Su, how could you agree to let Nie Lingxuan go?”
“What else can I do?” Su Yu looked indifferent .
“She’s the pillar of our company . If she’s gone, we’ll have no female stars showing up at the Orchid Movie Festival held the next month… Cotton Candy is now in the center of negative news; Zhong Xiaocui is not a big name; only a few of our male stars are well-known . It would be a big blow to our company . You should have stopped her from leaving . ”
“She insisted on leaving; how could I stop her?” Su Yu stared at the vice president in displeasure .
“You can issue the order to blacklist her or shelter her… Female performers all care about the future of their careers . If you threaten her with it, I’m sure she’ll give in . ”
