Lan Xi looked at Tangning with an extreme sense of ridicule as she crossed her legs to the other side casually . In the silence, she seemed to be hinting: Did you think a mere model like yourself could make me feel regret?
I really don't know where your confidence comes from . . .
Li Danni had a similar look of mockery on her face while Hua Yuan gave Tangning a slightly anxious look . Seeing Tangning facing off with Lan Xi, Hua Yuan felt herself sweating on behalf of her . It seemed she was worried that Tangning wouldn't be able to survive in Cheng Tian, or worse, the entertainment industry .
"I guess I'll have to wait and see how you will make me regret . Originally, I was planning to give a few of the jobs from Danni and Hua Yuan back to you, but it seems I don't have to anymore . "
Tangning smiled slightly; she didn't seem to be affected the way Lan Xi expected . In fact, she was exceptionally calm, "If there's nothing else President Lan, then I'll be heading home . "
"If you want, you can stay and listen as I brief these girls on the jobs they will be taking from you . I don't mind," Lan Xi looked away and spoke coldly .
Tangning did not allow these harsh words to make her uncomfortable . She simply gave Lan Xi a meaningful glance as she turned to leave .
At least when she first signed her contract, she had entered Cheng Tian with high hopes .
At least . . . she once had faith in Lan Xi .
Throughout this entire time, An Zihao had been waiting at the entrance . Upon seeing Tangning, he immediately ran up and asked, "What did you guys talk about?"
"Haven't you already inquired about this mess?" Tangning questioned him back . She was sure he'd already asked the staff at Cheng Tian .
"Did Lan Xi really treat you in such an extreme way?"
"I'm afraid something even more extreme is on its way," Tangning replied . Her voice was calm, but it seemed to contain a sense of bitterness .
"All I want is what I deserve . "
"I don't steal nor snatch . "
"I depend on my own abilities . "
"Yet, why must things be so hard?"
"I guess . . . if even my fiancee could become someone else's, what's so strange about a friend becoming an enemy?"
After hearing Tangning's words, An Zihao didn't know how to refute . After all, he was too familiar with the pain associated with a friend's betrayal .
"Zihao, I think you might be out of luck, I've just threatened Lan Xi . "
"What you've done is not a threat . You never say anything you aren't sure of and never do anything you aren't certain about," An Zihao looked at Tangning calmly; he had faith in her .
Frozen by the agency?
Can't she get herself out of it?
An Zihao looked at Tangning's comfortable expression, he didn't believe it would be a problem for her at all .
However, in order to improve Tangning's mood, he decided to contact Lu Che so he could notify Mo Ting of what had happened .
After finding out the whole story, Mo Ting's eyes were terrifyingly cold and piercing . Even Lu Che had never seen the president reveal such a frightening expression . . .
Before meeting Tangning, Cheng Tian meant nothing in Mo Ting's eyes and he especially didn't care about provocation from others . However, Lan Xi was currently picking on the person he loved the most . . .
She was stepping on his precious wife . . .
He started thinking about the reason he had originally sent Tangning to Cheng Tian; he wanted to help her find the perfect stairs to success . Who would have thought, he instead sent her into a living hell .
Lan Xi . . .
However, according to Tangning's personality, until she got completely hurt, she would not give up on the slightest glimpse of hope . If Lan Xi really managed to send Tangning to his side - to Hai Rui - he . . .
. . . would tolerate her for a few more days .
. . .
7pm . Mo Ting returned home on time to find Tangning asleep on the living room sofa . He couldn't help but remove his jacket and place it on her . Only at times like this did he get the chance to see the delicate side of Tangning; the side that needed protecting .
Tangning wasn't being forceful towards herself; as a person, especially a woman, all she wanted was a satisfying job and a happy family . She didn't want to reap without sowing, she just wanted to work diligently . But her experiences so far had been heavy like lead .
Mo Ting's heart ached . . .
Maybe because she could feel the burn from Mo Ting's fiery gaze, Tangning slowly opened her eyes . As her eyes met with Mo Ting's, she smiled sweetly, "You're back . "
"Someone's almost blocked your modeling pathway, how could you still smile?"
"No, they haven't," Tangning stood up and wrapped one arm around Mo Ting's neck . With her other arm, she stuck out her finger and pointed to herself, "Who knows, maybe tomorrow I will make a revival . . . Ting . . . you need to have faith in me . "
Mo Ting pulled her into his embrace and placed his chin against her forehead, "But I am worried; I get more worried by the day . I can no longer watch you being bullied . With your permission, I can be your sword; your weapon . "
There are people in one's life that want to use them even though they would never allow it .
Yet there are people that refuse to use one no matter how much they want them to .
"Did you think without you backing me I would be brave enough to put all my eggs in one basket?" Tangning said in a serious manner . "No matter how independent I am . . . you are still my source of support; you determine my happiness . "
Mo Ting's pride was satisfied as he hugged Tangning without a word; peacefully enjoying the silence .
Even if Lan Xi still wanted to create problems for Tangning behind her back .
How could someone with a strong willpower get frozen?
. . .
The next morning .
Ling Feng's fans were in an uproar as LM was scheduled to release the highlights from their shoot . They wanted to know what type of man the director had found to replace Ling Feng . How dare they accept a job that was originally Ling Feng's?
"Oh, the fans are really putting in a lot of effort," Ling Feng's manager said to Ling Feng as he sipped his coffee .
"They are all waiting to see what god-like person it is and are waiting to stick up for you . "
Ling Feng looked neat and tidy; he was about to go discuss his new movie with a film company . Just thinking about the highlights to be released by LM, Ling Feng's face was full of disdain .
"How is this kind of matter worth paying attention to? Let them complain . I used to hate these brainless fans, but now I feel they've come in use . "
"Be careful what you say," his manager warned .
"Have I said something wrong? Those idiots believe everything I say . They even went to look for Tangning to tear her apart . Pfft . . . "
His manager couldn't control his outspoken personality . But, it didn't matter, because the climax they were waiting for was to see the man that filmed a commercial with Tangning .
Let's see you completely ridiculed . . .
At this time, Tangning was sitting on the sofa in Mo Ting's office watching LM's every move . In reality, she was quite nervous . Firstly, this was the first time her and Mo Ting would appear together in front of the public and they would be broadcasted to the entire nation . Secondly, she wondered if anyone would recognize Mo Ting .
A few meters away, Mo Ting was sitting at his desk flipping through some documents; it didn't seem to worry him at all . . .
10:30am . The scheduled time had arrived . As promised, LM released their highlights right on time . . .
