Chapter 43: An Yuting (3)
“No need. I can go over myself.” Once An Yuting said this, she walked quickly over to the parlor. She was too eager to see Chen Xiuqi.
Once she left, Assistant Chen said to Su Yaya, “Miss Su, President Chen wants you to wait in his office momentarily. Please follow me.”
“Ok.” Su Yaya nodded at him and followed him to Chen Xiuqi’s office.
One waited in the parlor while the other went to the office to meet him. This clearly showed the difference between the two!
When Su Yaya arrived at the said office, she was shocked to discover that Chen Xiuqi was still there. “Aren’t you in the parlor?”
“I still need to handle some work here. I’ll go over later,” Chen Xiuqi said honestly. Su Yaya no longer suspected his actions.
As she walked over and placed the lunchbox on the coffee table, Chen Xiuqi came to her side and said, “What did you bring for me today?”
Su Yaya replied, “Picked vegetables with meat slice soup, cucumber with scrambled eggs, tomato with stir fried meat, and stir fried bok choys.”
Chen Xiuqi nodded his head in satisfaction. He said to her, “I’ll go out for now and I’ll be back later. Don’t you dare eat without me.”
Why is he acting like a kid? Su Yaya found it funny. “Ok, I won’t eat without you. Go quickly and come back.”
She knew that he was going to see An Yuting, but she didn’t care. Su Yaya was just a cannon fodder female side lead, so she just needed to do her job. That way, she could live longer.
Who knew that Chen Xiuqi would observe her intently and ask, “Why don’t you ask me why I’m going out?”
Su Yaya’s heart thumped. What did he mean? He was unhappy because she didn’t ask what he was doing? But what right did she have to ask him? He is the male lead and she was the cannon fodder female side lead. They were only married by contract and she was only his wife by name, meaning that she simply needed to do her best at acting her part. Why did she need to care about so much?
She laughed and said, “You’re going out because you have matters to attend to. I can just wait here for you.”
Chen Xiuqi looked deeply at her, his eyes mixed with unexplainable emotions. He turned around and walked out.
At the parlor, An Yuting who had been waiting for a while finally saw Chen Xiuqi. She watched as his tall figure walked into the parlor and she hurriedly stood up from her seat. An Yuting sweetly called, “Brother Xiuqi.”
The man turned to look at her. Compared to her enthusiasm, he was much more indifferent. He nodded his head at her and faintly said, “Sit.”
An Yuting sat down and stared at Chen Xiuqi. He was really handsome and she really liked him. Her heart thumped quickly and nonstop as she watched him.
“Why are you looking for me?” Chen Xiuqi sat on the seat across and asked faintly.
An Yuting purposefully spoke in a soft and artificial voice, “Brother Xiuqi, I heard that Sheng Shi Entertainment invested in 《Flourishing Palace 》. I’ve read the original novel and I really like the second female lead. Can you give me that role?”
The female lead was the Thousand Flowers Award and best actress, Chen Yan. It was already set in stone. Plus, based on her popularity, status, and acting, she was much better than herself. She can’t change who was the female lead but she could act as the second female lead for sure. She had the confidence.
An Yuting believed that since Chen Xiuqi liked his sister the most and since she was her sister, with this layer of relationship, he will definitely agree.
She begged, “Brother Xiuqi, it’s just a small role. You can just order them to give the role to me. Just give me the second female lead role please! You said that you will take care of me as if I am actually your sister.”
