Chapter 632: Pretending In Front of Me
The rumor about the Lu family continued speculating online and people were even beginning to speculate whether Jiang Yuning and Lu Jingzhi would still be holding their wedding as scheduled.
Even though the rumors were surging and spreading wildly, Jiang Yuning continued keeping herself busy at work.
In fact, all of the production crew admired Jiang Yuning’s determination very much. They were all very amazed that she was not angry at all despite all of the rumors outside.
She was still very dedicated and focused on filming her own scenes for the movie.
Besides that, Jiang Yuning would always be playing with the young actress who was playing her young daughter in the movie as they were waiting to film the next scene on set.
The second female lead who had often bullied the third female lead in the past has always been very respectful towards Jiang Yuning in the past. This was because she knew that she could not afford to offend Jiang Yuning. However, in the past few days, she has received several news stating that prior to filming <Suffocation>, many directors had sent their drama and movie scripts over to Jiang Yuning. However, it seemed as though most of them have already passed their drama and movie scripts over to other actresses instead because of the recent events happening to the Lu family. Therefore, the second female lead could not help but feel that these directors did not want to take the risk.
Only Jiang Yuning alone knew that she was the one who had already rejected those drama and movie scripts. After all, the directors were only afraid that the price and perception of their drama and movie would fall if anyone found out that Jiang Yuning had rejected the role. Therefore, they simply took advantage of this situation to say that they were offering these opportunity to other actresses because of the incident involving the Lu family. However, this was not the case at all.
Rejecting and getting rejected were two completely different results.
Because of this incident, the second female lead was also a little uncontrollable at the crew.
This was especially so because she tried to apply for leave from the director because of an event that she had to attend. After her leave application was rejected by the director, she could not help but glared angrily at Jiang Yuning.
Why was Jiang Yuning allowed to take three days off but she could not even take a single day off?
Why did she have to work according to Jiang Yuning’s schedule?
As far as she knew, Jiang Yuning was also going to apply for more leave soon.
In fact, the director never said that she was not allowed to take any leave at all. However, since the second female lead’s event and activities were not urgent, he simply suggested that she took a break after they were done filming for the next few days since they were currently filming very critical scenes. However, the second female lead felt that the director was being impartial and he was simply targeting her.
“Don’t you think that the director is too much? Does the entire cast and crew have to work around her all the time? When she applies for leave, all of our work have to be suspended and all of us have to rest. However, when other people wants to apply for leave, everything has to be subjected to her schedule! Tell me, isn’t this a little too much?”
After the second female lead failed to get the director’s approval to take leave, she deliberately complained loudly on the set.
Even though she did not mention any names, everyone knew that she was referring to Jiang Yuning.
After the young paparazzo heard her words, he suddenly got very angry. “Sister Yuning, that Sister Shan is insinuating us, right?”
Jiang Yuning was braiding the young girl’s hair at this time and she simply smiled indifferently before she said, “What is she insinuating? She simply failed to get the director to approve her leave.”
“But don’t you think that she is being a little too arrogant? I also think that Didi will be running out of luck soon.”
“Did you ask her whether she needs any help?”
“I asked her but she said that she did not need any help,” the young paparazzo replied as he shrugged innocently”.
“Then, ask her to come over here now.” Jiang Yuning instructed the young paparazzo.
She really did not believe that Li Lanshan would dare to come over and ask her to hand the third female lead over to her.
“Okay then but are you sure that it will be fine for us to bring the trouble here to ourselves?”
“Why would there be a problem?” Jiang Yuning raised her head as she glanced at the young paparazzo. “This is not the first time that I am hearing about this matter. She has been talking about the Lu family behind my back so why should I be giving her any face? I am not such a kind and tolerant person. If I want to, I will deal with her until she has no way to retaliate anymore. When I take over Director Shen’s position in the office at the end of the year, I will definitely take all her resources away from her. I want to see if she will still be able to laugh at that time.”
“Hey, Sister Yuning. Somehow, I feel a little happier after hearing that. I will ask Didi to come over here now.”
Li Lanshan was really planning to vent all of her anger and frustration on the third female lead. Therefore, she sent her assistant to look for her all over the set. After searching for a short while, the assistant finally saw Didi sitting next to Jiang Yuning. It would not be convenient for the assistant to take Didi away from Jiang Yuning. Therefore, she quickly reported this matter to Li Lanshan.
“It is already difficult for Jiang Yuning to protect herself and she still has time to worry about others? Come, let’s go! Follow me to get Didi away from Jiang Yuning!” Li Lanshan was very arrogant because she knew that there would be a lot of people who would be waiting to trample all over the Lu family once they lost their power and authority.
As the daughter-in-law of the Lu family, Jiang Yuning was also bound to be humiliated at that point.
Therefore, Jiang Yuning would have no choice but to keep a low profile to maintain the Lu family’s image and reputation then.
What about money?
Would they also be short of money then?
When Li Lanshan saw where Jiang Yuning was sitting at, she saw that Didi was seated right next to Jiang Yuning. Besides that, Jiang Yuning was braiding the young child actress’ hair.
Didi could not help but feel extremely nervous when she saw Li Lanshan walking towards them. She held her hands tightly together and she went a little pale.
Jiang Yuning curled the corners of her lips upwards when she caught a glimpse of Li Lanshan approaching her.
“Sister Yuning, can I borrow Didi from you for a short while? Isn’t she very good at keeping and maintaining pets? I want to ask her to help me to choose something for my pet.”
“We are about to start filming in a short while. You can talk about it when we are done filming,” Jiang Yuning turned down Li Lanshan’s request directly without even raising her head to look at her.
“I will not cause any delay to the filming schedule. It will just be for a short while.” After that, Li Lanshan reached out her hand to catch Didi but she was instantly stopped by Jiang Yuning.
“Since it is not anything urgent, why are you in such a hurry? Sister Shan, I have been on the crew for a short while now and I have heard some rumors…are you interested to hear it from me too?” Jiang Yuning had a very calm and steady voice as she held onto Didi with one hand while she held the young actress’s braid with her other hand.
“Sister Yuning, it is fine.”
“I heard someone spreading rumors stating that the Lu family is about to suffer a catastrophe and they are about to go bankrupt soon. Are you the one who started this baseless rumor?” Jiang Yuning asked as she glared directly at Li Lanshan. “Your intel is very interesting.”
“Sister Yuning, you can stop pretending in front of me. You should understand the current situation of the Lu family very well. You should know better than me so why are you still putting on a show right now? Who are you putting this act on for?” Li Lanshan crossed her arms in front of her chest as she glared at Jiang Yuning fearlessly.
“No matter what the situation of the Lu family is, that is a whole different story. Do you really think that I will not be able to deal with a small actress like you?”
“Oh, I do not dare to offend you, Sister Yuning. No matter what it is, we have already been filming <Suffocation> for a few months now. Furthermore, it seems as though we will be able to win an award with this movie. If I threaten to leave the crew now, wouldn’t you have spent the last few months acting for no reason at all?”
“Sister Yuning, I will just go with Sister Shan.” After she was done speaking, Didi stood up from her chair. At this time, Li Lanshan had no scruples at all and she simply slapped Didi directly in front of Jiang Yuning.
“You want to be pretending in front of me?”
Didi covered her cheek with her hand and her eyes were flushed red.
Li Lanshan had originally raised her hand to give Didi another slap across her face. However, at this time, Jiang Yuning reacted very quickly and she grabbed Li Lanshan’s wrist before giving her two tight slaps across her face.
“You can leave the crew anytime you don’t feel like acting anymore. We will not try to keep you.”
Li Lanshan lost her balance and she staggered before she fell to the ground.
At this time, Jiang Yuning squatted down next to her before she said, “Has anyone told you that I hate it when anyone tries to threaten me? Even if the Lu family is going to go bankrupt tomorrow, do you believe that I will make sure that I destroy you today?”
