“It’s not that I don’t want to, Young Master Xiao.” Mu Xiaoya continued to tease him. “But I’m being overwhelmed by someone on set and I can’t do any more scenes. How can I still be in the mood for a date?”
“Then don’t film anymore.” Xiao Ruilang didn’t seem to understand what she was implying, and said gently, “There are plenty of other chances if you want to film.”
“But that’s all I want to do.” Mu Xiaoya gritted her teeth. “I want to be the lead actress in this show!”
Xiao Ruilang stroked her wrist with his thumb.
“I can’t do that, Ms. Mu.” He smiled and said apologetically. “The Xiao family didn’t invest in this show, so I don’t have any say in it. However, I can make it impossible for this film to go on. What do you think?”
“No! No!” Mu Xiaoya was shocked.
“But if you’re not happy with the shoot, you won’t be in the mood to date me,” said Xiao Ruilang. He tilted his head, thought for a bit, and asked, “You’ll have time as long as the filming permit is revoked, right?”
His tone was serious, and his smile sincere, as if he really thought it was a good idea and not a joke.
“No!” Mu Xiaoya yelled. “That’s not what I mean.”
“Huh? What does that mean?” Xiao Ruilang asked. “Is revoking the filming license not enough?”
Mu Xiaoya couldn’t help shudder.
She finally realized that this man was different from the rich second-generation heir she had imagined him to be. This was someone who wouldn’t give up until he got what he wanted. If she didn’t like a present, she would get her four or five others. And if she still used filming as an excuse today, he might really have the capability of revoking the filming license.
If that happened, she would be hated by the entire crew! There was no need to be so extreme even if it were just to mess with Ye Shengge.
“I-I’m in the mood.” Mu Xiaoya forced a smile. “I’ve finished filming my scenes for today.”
“Very good.” Xiao Ruilang smiled with satisfaction. He picked up Mu Xiaoya’s hand and kissed it. “Let’s go.”
His kiss was ice-cold.
Mu Xiaoya shivered.
No one had seen what had happened in the makeup room, but they had seen the bodyguards delivering a number of gifts. They couldn’t help wondering how many gifts that man had given Mu Xiaoya.
Ye Shengge had already returned to her own makeup room, and she had closed the door.
Lin Qi fumed with anger and jealousy as she was dragged back, “That Young Master Xiao is obviously here for Summer Wood, but Mu Xiaoya isn’t Summer Wood at all! How shameless! If the real Summer Wood knew about this, she would definitely be furious!”
“Hehe …” Ye Shengge chuckled.
She wasn’t angry at all. It was better to leave such a dangerous man to Mu Xiaoya. She just didn’t know whether Mu Xiaoya would be lucky enough to enjoy it.
She suddenly felt that Ji Shiting was better. Although that man seemed aloof and detached, he was actually very kind.
Half an hour later, Ye Shengge opened the door again. It was completely quiet outside, and Mu Xiaoya’s makeup room was empty. It seemed that she had been taken away by Xiao Ruilang.
However, it wasn’t all that surprising. This sort of man only looked gentle on the outside. How could he stand others rejecting his invitation? If soft methods didn’t work, he would force them until he achieved his goal.
Ye Shengge felt that it was best not to let him know who the real Summer Wood was.
