Chapter 75: That’s All The Emperor Chooses

Translator: Atlas Studios  Editor: Atlas Studios

Ye Shengge’s heart was in her mouth. Was she really going to lose her role as the lead actress? Ji Shiting had clearly promised her. She too had kept her promise and didn’t bother him…

She couldn’t help feeling guilty as she recalled how she had been in contact with Ji Shiting lately. That… shouldn’t be considered bothering, would it?

Just as she was feeling upset, Xu Xiangjie handed her a gold invitation card. “Here, take this.”

Ye Shengge snapped out of her daze, took the invitation card and opened it. Her eyes nearly popped out of their sockets. “This is the invitation for the Ji family’s dinner banquet tomorrow.”

“That’s right,” Xu Xiangjie smiled. “I’m old, so I didn’t want to join the fun. After some consideration, I decided to give it to you.”

“Director Xu, how did you know I didn’t have one?” Ye Shengge was a tad skeptical.

If Xu Xiangjie had mistaken her for Ji Shiting’s personnel, then Xu Xiangjie would’ve assumed she had an invitation.

And not be so sure she didn’t receive one.

Even Xu Xiangjie, who had always been calm, was stumped by her question. However, he regained his composure after a few seconds. “I heard your conversation with Mu Xiaoya just now, so I came here to help her.”

“Director Xu, you should know that I don’t have that kind of relationship with Mr. Ji Shiting, otherwise I would’ve gotten an invitation.” Ye Shengge was pressed on. “Even so, are you still going to do that?”

“That’s right.” Xu Xiangjie said calmly. “I saw your potential that day after the shoot, so I’m willing to do that regardless of whether you have a backer or not.”

This explanation made sense.

Ye Shengge finally smiled and said, “Thank you, Director Xu.”

“Don’t mention it.” Xu Xiangjie sent her away.

She hadn’t expected the girl to be so smart. He had nearly been found out by her.

If he didn’t handle it properly, that big boss would definitely be pissed.

With that in mind, Xu Xiangjie immediately sent a message: The invitation had been issued.


The next day, Ji Family’s old manor.

There were so many stars in the sky tonight, so Uncle Jin decided to arrange the dinner banquet in the yard.

The backyard was already brightly lit, and the decorations were lavish. The well-trained waiters were placing exquisite snacks and expensive drinks in different arrangements.

Guests arrived one after another. Every guest would receive a numbered tag when they entered. These tags were separated to red and blue for female and male guests respectively. There were a hundred numbers starting from one.

The courtyard gradually became lively around eight p.m.

In the study room on the second floor of the house, Qiao Yanze watched from the window and smiled, “Come here, Shiting. All the rich ladies from Yang City are here, and they’re all so beautiful… Tsk, all of them are here for you.”

Yu Shuhang chimed in with a smile. “That’s how ancient emperors used to pick concubines right?”

Ji Shiting was lounging on the sofa with a book in his hand. He glanced at them indifferently and said. “Why don’t you guys head down and entertain the guests?”

If the two of them went down, they would still be recognized by the socialites.

“Hehe, forget it,” Yu Shuhang replied unperturbedly.

Qiao Yanze’s lips curled and he joked, “I can’t believe you’d agree to attend such a dinner given your personality.”

Ji Shiting didn’t say anything. He set aside his book and walked to the window.

Xie Siqi, who was wearing a gown, was helping to receive the guest with a host-like attitude.

Indeed, it had something to do with her.

Ji Shiting scoffed.
