Chapter 49: Unexpected Call (3)
Cai Jiayu looked up at her with a flash of an inexplicable emotion in her eyes and walked into the office with her head down.
Su Qiuzi glanced back and took the information of the past few days to look at, but her heart still had some lingering doubts. Cao Tingping was indeed a very traditional and stern producer, but it wasn’t so much that he kept on chiding Cai Jiayu for making a small mistake. She felt that something was wrong, but she couldn’t figure out what it was, so she just didn’t bother thinking about it anymore.
The time was right at the end of December, and the TV station’s New Year’s Eve celebration programming was in full swing. The ratings of a satellite TV’s New Year’s Eve party also represented the strength of the satellite TV.
Furthermore, the New Year’s party was only done once a year. Compared to the Spring Festival, the New Year’s party had a large space to play, and could also pull in a lot of advertising sponsorship. The station’s leaderboard members took it very seriously. Whenever someone was not working during these hours, they were soaking up in the station’s auditorium, ready to give a hand.
As a provincial TV station, Xia City TV station boasted remarkable capabilities and was ranked in the top three of domestic TV stations in terms of viewership. The New Year’s Eve party attracted a lot of entertainers every year, but the entertainers rarely had any rehearsals and the large stage was filled with dancers performing their dances. Occasionally a singer was required to stand for the position, and the crew below came in handy. One moment they would pretend as this female star, the other moment they would pretend as that male singer. Su Qiuzi also went up and posed as an actress who promoted folk culture.
It was the first time Su Qiuzi was exposed to this kind of event, and she found it quite interesting and had quite a bit to learn. The party would be recorded on December 30th, and recently rehearsals had been running late. Su Qiuzi had nothing to lose from work, and she was going to stay here until the rehearsal was over.
However, when she finished her role as an actress and got off the stage, she received a phone call from Song Yihyun.
After Su Qiuzi and He Yu married, she had become the most wicked, vicious, cunning, ungrateful, lustful, and shameless woman in Song Yihyun’s mouth. She never returned to the Su Family house after her marriage.
At that time, He Yu rejected her father at Su Ai’s birthday banquet and proposed to her instead, causing Su Ai to lose face in the circle of Xia City’s celebrities. Besides, she was going to run away from that place sooner or later. It could be considered that she was running away early now and there was no need to go back.
When she didn’t go back, her father didn’t care and Song Yihyun and Su Ai were not bothered. But today, for some reason, the call from her stepmother came.
At first, Su Qiuzi did not pick up. Then her father’s number appeared. Su Qiuzi thought that if she did not pick up today, it would certainly be an endless string of calls, so she walked out of the auditorium and answered the phone.
“Becoming a member of the He Family, you already spread your wings and you don’t even want to answer my call?” Song Yihyun’s sarcastic voice rang on the end of the phone.
“I was busy working.” Su Qiuzi said without being condescending.
“Working to get away from answering your elders’ phones? Haven’t I taught you any manners?” Song Yihyun’s voice grew louder with each passing word.
Su Qiuzi had really spread her wings up. Before that, she not only didn’t dare not answer her phone, but also never spoke to her in such a tone. Hearing her tone now, Song Yihyun was really furious now.
“Sorry, Auntie.” Su Qiuzi apologized, not wanting to get into any more trouble with her, so she asked, “Is there something you want to talk about?”
Song Yihyun seemed to have not yet calmed her anger, and she gave Su Qiuzi a couple more accusations. Su Qiuzi listened quietly until the end, when finally she said the purpose of the call.
“Tomorrow night at six o’clock, you and He Yu will come to the Su Family’s house for dinner.”
“No.” Su Qiuzi refused without even thinking about it. After refusing, she was afraid that Song Yihyun wouldn’t stop calling her again, so she said, “He Yu has been too busy lately, I guess he doesn’t have time to go over.”
On the other end of the phone, Song Yihyun grunted coldly and said, “He Yu has time, he has already promised.”
Su Qiuzi: “…”
