123 It’s Here, It’s Here, Here Comes Trouble

Li Xiwu couldn’t help but think for a moment.

At this moment, Xue Jinzhu added, “Actually, he’s been a little busy these past two days. He doesn’t have much time to accompany me, but even if he’s very busy, he’s prepared a gift for me. I can’t refuse such a small surprise.”

As she spoke, Xue Jinzhu raised her right hand. Then, she raised her middle finger and showed Li Xiwu the Bulgari ring on her middle finger. “Miss Li, look. This is the ring he bought for me.”

Li Xiwu looked at it for a few seconds before looking away. “Do you know the arrangements from the company?”

The topic changed too quickly. Xue Jinzhu retracted her hand in embarrassment. “I just found out.”

Li Xiwu asked, “Your original intention was to participate in this mother-in-law and daughter-in-law variety show?”

“Yes, yes, yes!” Xue Jinzhu nodded vigorously. She even said, “Miss Li, you’re so popular after being on this variety show. This means that this variety show has the advantage of creating stars. Compared to slowly filming and becoming famous, this mother-in-law and daughter-in-law variety show is a good stepping stone.”

Li Xiwu nodded. “Good thinking.”

Xue Jinzhu beamed. “Then what do I need to prepare now?”

Li Xiwu put down the information in her hand. “We have to pretend not to know each other on the mother-in-law and daughter-in-law variety show. You’re just an ordinary person.”

Xue Jinzhu nodded. “I know that. President Qi said so.”

Li Xiwu asked again, “Your group is a combination of mother-in-law and daughter-in-law. Have you seen that mother-in-law?”

Xue Jinzhu shook her head. “Not yet, but President Qi said that I’ll see her in the afternoon. Miss Li, are you free in the afternoon?”

Li Xiwu said, “Not this afternoon.”

Xue Jinzhu was disappointed. After a long silence, Xue Jinzhu asked in a probing tone, “Miss Li, do you not like me?”

Li Xiwu inhaled. “No.”

Xue Jinzhu said, “But… you don’t care much about me.”

“You’re a resource celebrity. I’m only your manager in name. I can’t interfere too much with you.” Li Xiwu expressed her attitude.

It was indeed the case.

Xue Jinzhu pouted and sighed. “Alright, I understand, but…” As she spoke, Xue Jinzhu’s eyes darted around before she looked at Li Xiwu. “Miss Li, you have to control me when you’re free. A daughter without anyone to control will become more and more rebellious. I quarreled with an artist from the same company yesterday.”

Li Xiwu asked calmly, “Did you win the argument?”

Xue Jinzhu’s unhappy expression a second ago turned into a smile the next. “Yes, I did!”

Li Xiwu raised her eyebrows. “As long as you win the argument.”

“I won the argument, but…” Xue Jinzhu hesitated.

Li Xiwu asked, “But what?”

Xue Jinzhu looked a little troubled and embarrassed, making her charming face look a little silly. “It’s just that I performed too well. She couldn’t argue with me and cried from anger. She turned around and reported it to her manager. Her manager might come looking for trouble with you later.”

Li Xiwu: “…”

Her temples throbbed faintly. Li Xiwu raised her hand and pressed it.

Knock, knock, knock—

There was a knock on the door! Speak of the devil!

“Li Xiwu!” A roar came from outside the door.

Xue Jinzhu reacted extremely quickly and walked around the desk to hide behind Li Xiwu. “It’s here, it’s here, trouble is here.”

Li Xiwu frowned and looked up at the door. Kong Yu and her manager, Cao Ting, entered her office one after another.

“Li Xiwu, you’re finally back! You’ve been quite glorious these past two days!” Cao Ting’s tone was unfriendly as soon as he entered.

Li Xiwu stood up and smiled. “How can it be as glorious as Old Cao? Qi Zishen just won the Golden Magnolia Award. Old Cao won’t mind if I congratulate you late, right?”

Qi Zishen was Hua Guan’s number one male celebrity. He was popular and had a stable status.

“How would I dare to mind? Miss Li is now a popular person in Hua Guan. President Qi has to be careful with you, too. In a while, I’m afraid I’ll have to call you President Li.” Cao Ting’s tone sounded strange, but he was actually furious.

The two of them were actually quite close. However, this time, Xue Jinzhu really angered Cao Ting.

Cao Ting almost gritted his teeth. “I know you’re busy, but no matter what, you have to take some time to take care of Xue Jinzhu. She bullied my artist. Look at how she bullied our Kong Yu! She cried all night.”

Li Xiwu was still not sure what was going on. Her gaze shifted to Kong Yu, who was beside Cao Ting. The little girl’s nose was red, and her eyes were red. She looked like she had been wronged.

She remembered that Kong Yu had only signed in with Cao Ting for a year. She was not in a professional class and had yet to take on two dramas, but she had gained some popularity under the name of Qi Zishen’s junior sister.

Li Xiwu straightened up. “Old Cao, I just returned to the company. I’m not too sure about the details. Take a seat and tell me slowly.”

After giving him a way out, Cao Ting naturally had to go down. He was about to sit down when Xue Jinzhu jumped out from behind Li Xiwu. “Kong Yu, you have cockroaches on you!”

“Ahhhhhhhhh—” Kong Yu’s scream echoed throughout the office. Even the people passing by could hear her. Curious, someone peered in to see what was going on and saw a woman ‘tapping’ in the office.

Li Xiwu: “…”

Cao Ting: “…”

The two of them looked at each other. Cao Ting was already furious. Li Xiwu quickly said, “Old Cao, calm down. Calm down.”

Cao Ting looked at Li Xiwu and then at Xue Jinzhu, who was gloating. “Control her.” With that, he quickly went to comfort Kong Yu.

This was how she was after being frightened. Her nerves were a little weak and could not withstand another scare. More importantly, Xue Jinzhu had taken a real cockroach when she first frightened Kong Yu.

Li Xiwu took a deep breath and turned to look at Xue Jinzhu angrily.

The gloating smile on Xue Jinzhu’s face immediately disappeared. “…Miss Li, I was wrong.”

Li Xiwu, who had yet to start asking questions: “…”

Xue Jinzhu caused trouble and admitted her mistake quite quickly, she even apologized to Kong Yu very formally and politely. She was just short of bowing. Throughout the entire process, Cao Ting was quite satisfied and let the matter rest.

After watching Cao Ting leave the office with Kong Yu, Li Xiwu sighed. She turned to look at Xue Jinzhu, who was taking a selfie, and suddenly asked, “Are you the one whom your parents worry about the most in your family?”

Xue Jinzhu smiled, revealing her teeth. “Miss Li, how do you even know this?”

Li Xiwu pursed her lips. “Don’t always cause trouble. If you offended the entire company, even if you’re a resource celebrity, the road ahead won’t be so easy. Old Cao is still easy to talk to. It might not be the case for anyone else.”

Xue Jinzhu obediently replied, “Okay.”

However, she immediately said indignantly, “But she was the one who said that my plastic surgery was too exaggerated at first. Then, she said that my breast augmentation was too exaggerated, but I was born with it. Moreover, not only am I born with big breasts, but I’m also born with a big butt. I don’t know how lucky my man is.”

Li Xiwu: “…”
