Ye Shengge stood up and wanted to say hi first, but Xu Xiangjie waved his hand and said, “Shengge, don’t be so formal. Quickly, sit down.”
He smiled and tried to push Ye Shengge back to her seat gently, but he put his hands back halfway as he felt that he was being inappropriate.
Ye Shengge was confused.
Xu Xiangjie was a renowned director. Although he wasn’t an arrogant person, he had never been humble like this.
“You’re being too polite, Director Xu,” she smiled. “Please sit down. I’ll go order some food.”
“No need. I’ve already ordered,” Xu Xiangjie couldn’t have sounded more gentle. “Why did you arrange a meeting with me?”
Ye Shengge was so confused by his attitude that she almost forgot what she was going to say.
And besides, she felt that she was starting to sweat, probably due to the heat in the room.
However, Xu Xiangjie wasn’t impatient at all, instead, he still looked at her with a smile.
“Um… Director Xu. The artist from our company, Mu Xiaoya, has had a scandal lately. Perhaps she should not be the lead actress.” It took Ye Shengge some time to articulate herself. “I’m really sorry.”
“No problem.” Xu Xiangjie waved his hands. “Do you have anyone else to recommend to me?”
“Yes, I, I do…” Ye Shengge took a deep breath. “I do have someone to recommend to you, and that is…”
Ye Shengge wanted to say her own name.
However, before she could finish, she felt so dehydrated and dizzy.
“Who’s that?” Xu Xiangjie asked.
“It’s…” Ye Shengge struggled to say her name.
Her heart pounded so fast it felt as if it was going to come out of her chest, and she started to see double images of Xu Xiangjie.
“Shengge?” Xu Xiangjie frowned as he realized something was wrong. “Are you sick?”
Ye Shengge felt so hot. She bit her lips and clenched her collar with her right hand.
She wanted to take off her shirt to feel a breeze, but she couldn’t as director Xu was still sitting there.
“I…” Ye Shengge struggled and tried to reach the water cup, yet she was too weak to even do that.
“Did you eat something bad?” Xu Xiangjie suddenly had an assumption seeing how Ye Shengge was behaving. Things like this happened a lot in the entertainment world, so he could tell that Ye Shengge might’ve taken some drugs.
Ye Shengge was breathing heavily and swallowing her saliva, but she couldn’t say anything.
She had taken a pill before, and it seemed that that pill was the reason.
“Wait a second. Let me call someone first.” Xu Xiangjie stood up and rushed out of the room.
“Ms. Ye is inside,” said Xu Xiangjie.
“How long ago did she take it?” asked a deep male voice.
The voice was deep but melodious. Ye Shengge found that voice very familiar.
Who… Who is that?
She wanted to look up, yet she was so hot and dehydrated that it was painful for her to even move her body.
Suddenly, someone pinched her chin with his cold hand.
She couldn’t help panting a bit and grabbing the hand.
