Chapter 58: She’s Obviously Just a Substitute (1)
An Yuting drove the car to Chen Company and parked. She attempted to call Chen Xiuqi but he didn’t answer, so she had to change her plans. She took out a mirror from her bag and checked her appearance to make sure that nothing was wrong with her makeup. Afterwards, she got out of the car.
An Yuting walked to the Chen Company with her purse and found Li Lan at the reception desk. She maintained the same arrogant tone as she ordered “I’m here to meet Brother Xiuqi. Call the President’s office.”
The commanding tone made Li Lan uncomfortable. This visitor had a bad attitude compared to Su Yaya’s friendly manner, which made a huge difference between the two. The receptionist suddenly thought that Su Yaya was ok, at least better than An Yuting.
Li Lan revealed a professional faint smile and said in a proper tone. “Miss An, do you have an appointment?”
An Yuting’s face became gloomy upon hearing this. She was in a bad mood and had been holding in her anger. Now, she was angrier. She pointed at Li Lan and yelled, “I told you to call the President’s office. Are you deaf? Can’t you understand English?”
An Yuting wasn’t that much of a beauty and she also had poor manners. She really thought of herself as a young miss!
Li Lan originally didn’t want to call but An Yuting had been constantly urging her. She glued her eyes to the President’s exclusive elevator, wishing for it to open up immediately.
What a coincidence that the elevator door opened right then. An Yuting was ecstatic and quickly walked over to see Assistant Chen coming out.
“Assistant Chen.” An Yuting smiled and called. Her attitude towards him, compared to Li Lan’s, was completely different. She changed her expression so quick as if she was acting.
“Miss An.” Assistant Chen stopped, surprised that she was here.
Right now, An Yuting couldn’t attend to much. She was anxious to see Chen Xiuqi so she hastily said, “Assistant Chen, I have an urgent matter to find Brother Xiuqi for. Can you let me up?”
Assistant Chen hesitated.
An Yuting quickly thought of something and whispered, “It’s about my sister. Brother Xiuqi must want to know.”
Assistant Chen had been Chen Xiuqi’s assistant for a few years. He personally witnessed Chen Xiuqi and An Yuting’s love and entanglement, so he knew how much Chen Xiuqi liked An Yutong. He paid attention to everything regarding her, and even feared if the task wasn’t done to its best.
Thinking of this, Assistant Chen made a decision without Chen Xiuqi’s permission. He led her to the elevator door, then took out his card and swiped it, opening the door for her. He allowed her go straight to the 26th floor.
When An Yuting arrived and walked out, she headed straight for Chen Xiuqi’s office. She didn’t even knock on the door, and instead, barged in directly.
“Brother Xiuqi, there’s an important matter.”
Right now, Chen Xiuqi was video conferencing with people abroad in subsidiary companies. Seeing that An Yuting barged in without notice, his handsome face became gloomy all of a sudden. He hastily said something to the staff on the other side and agreed to stop here and resume discussing about the other matters later on. He then hurriedly ended the conference.
Chen Xiuqi slapped the laptop shut and An Yuting’s heart thumped rapidly as she watched him.
“Who let you in?” His voice was icy cold, emitting cold aura. He looked sharply at An Yuting as though throwing darts at her.
This was the first time she had seen him that angry with her. His face was gloomy and there was a dispirited atmosphere. He was terrifying. She nervously gulped and said, “I, I came up by myself.”
Chen Xiuqi coldly humphed and his face became scarier. “You came up by yourself?”
“Y-yes. I met Assistant Chen downstairs and he let me up.” At this time, An Yuting didn’t dare to spit lies. She said the truth.
Chen Xiuqi humphed.
An Yuting carefully examined his expression. She revealed a miserable look and gently begged, “Brother Xiuqi, I really have an urgent matter. Don’t be angry at me.”
“What’s the matter? Spit it!” At this time, Chen Xiuqi just wanted to drive her away. The conference she interrupted was very important so he didn’t have that much time to talk with her.
Seeing that he calmed down a bit, An Yuting immediately stepped forward and asked, “Brother Xiuqi, why did you give the second female lead role to Su Yaya for 《Flourishing Palace》? I dislike her a lot and so does my sister!”
In the lounge, Su Yaya was sleeping soundly. She dreamed of numerous dollar bills falling down from the sky and piling up on her bed. She rolled around in bed due to happiness, turning from left to right, and then right to left. She was going crazy with ecstasy.
Suddenly, a sharp and piercing woman’s voice penetrated her ear drums, yelling loudly, “I hate Su Yaya!”
Su Yaya, who was in a dream, suddenly heard this voice filled with enmity and disgust. She immediately woke up.
Outside the lounge, An Yuting cried and caused a racket, causing Su Yaya, who was in the lounge, to hear it from her end.
“Brother Xiuqi, what’s good about Su Yaya? Is her acting better mine? Is she more famous than me? She’s just an online celebrity who can’t do anything right! How come she could have the second female lead role but not me? You knew how much I liked that role. Why did you have to do this to me?”
