Chapter 59: She’s Obviously Just a Substitute (2)
When Su Yaya heard An Yuting crying and complaining, she had an idea of what had happened. An Yuting was displeased that she got the second female lead role in 《Flourishing Palace》 so she came to cause a disturbance.
Thinking that a tragedy was about to happen, Su Yaya thought that she may not be able to keep her second female lead role.
According to the original book’s plot, Chen Xiuqi took extra care of An Yuting because of her family ties to An Yutong, at least before An Yuting began to seduce him later in the story. But before then, he tried his best to give her the roles she wanted. Therefore, she calmly and peacefully made her way up in the entertainment circle and had acted in a number of big and small projects. However, because of her attitude, arrogance, and tendency to look down on others after she had received Chen Xiuqi’s support, she had yet to become someone famous. An Yuting simply remained an ordinary celebrity.
An Yuting was unhappy that Su Yaya obtained the second female lead role in the TV Show, so now, she came requesting Chen Xiuqi to give her the role instead. According to the plot, there was a chance that Chen Xiuqi might really do so, and then give Su Yaya a different role instead as a compensation and comfort.
After all, the truth was laid bare; Su Yaya wasn’t as famous as An Yuting. She was just an ordinary online celebrity while An Yuting was an actual celebrity. If An Yuting was to have the second female lead role, there would definitely be more people watching than if it was her, an online celebrity acting this role. Chen Xiuqi was an authentic businessman. He invested in movies to earn money, not for charity. He would use whoever was more beneficial to helping him earn money. This was something so simple that anyone could think of.
There was another point–it had to do with their relationships. According to the original book, Chen Xiuqi deeply loved An Yutong and An Yuting was her biological sister. He would help his beloved’s sister in order to obtain a favorable impression of himself to her. This was the usual methods for many love stories. Even dominant CEO, Chen Xiuqi, couldn’t escape this.
Sigh. She was just a cannon fodder side female lead. How did she have the abilities to fight against An Yuting? If she really wanted the second female lead, she might as well give it to her.
It was so difficult to be a nice person. It was so difficult to live peacefully, especially a cannon fodder like her. If she wanted to have a peaceful future and live, she needed to remember to please the male and female lead always. She needed to make sure she didn’t offend anyone from the male or female lead’s side. Whenever she could let them do as they wish, she would do so. There were boundless open opportunities from moving a step back. After she divorces Chen Xiuqi, everything would be fine.
While Su Yaya was thinking about this, she immersed herself in the character of a miserable side lead. She didn’t bother paying attention to what Chen Xiuqi and An Yuting were saying outside, but then, she suddenly heard Au Yuting shrieking.
“Brother Xiuqi, how could you do this to my sister? You told me you would treat me like your actual sister in the past. That’s how you treat me? Who is this Su Yaya? Why are you comparing her to me? She just looks similar to my sister. Who doesn’t know that she’s actually my sister’s substitute!?”
Su Yaya nodded, agreeing with the words. She admits that she was indeed An Yuting’s substitute. She knew her place.
The only reason Chen Xiuqi had pursued her was because she was similar to An Yutong. He wanted to place hope on someone else so he decided to be with her. Chen Xiuqi had married her under a contract so that he could inherit his grandfather’s billion inheritance. He had no choice but to marry someone and he didn’t want to put in so much effort, so he found her.
Plus, the two had only completed their marriage procedures and signed the contract before marriage. It was a secret agreement. Besides a few essential figures who knew, no one else knew, and when the time comes, they will divorce!
Right now, they were in a tangled situation all because Chen Xiuqi wanted to satisfy his greediness. When the real original host returns, everything would end.
Su Yanyi understood this. Of course, she didn’t care that much since she was just a cannon fodder side lead. She simply needed to live each day happily.
However, the plot didn’t develop as she expected.
Chen Xiuqi suddenly hollered, “Scram. Don’t let me see you again.”
Su Yaya hid in the lounge and jumped at this bellow, not to mention An Yuting who was the target of his anger.
“Brother Xiuqi…” An Yuting was really frightened by the angry Chen Xiuqi. She had never seen this side of him. Compared to when she disturbed his conference, he was much frightening right now, so she timidly called him.
“Scram!” Chen Xiuqi angrily shouted again. Even Su Yaya who was hiding in the lounge felt the room shaking. Her heart was in her mouth.
