He Jichen's questioning made Qian Ge's body tremble.
Perhaps the man in front of her was overly imposing, but her lips quivered in shock as she could only cry out: "Director He." After that, she didn't say another word.
Between He Jichen's eyes was a faint air of ruthlessness as his gaze grew exceedingly cold. With a menacing tone of voice, he said, "Last time, when you tried to kick her off the production team by slandering her to Lin Zhengyi, I warned you that would be the last time. I never imagined that you wouldn't feel the least bit remorseful and keep playing dirty!"
With the production team, He Jichen never spoke much - even if the actors performed poorly, he let the assistant director handle it.
Come to think of it, this was the most he had ever spoken after joining the team.
Qian Ge remained stunned for a while when she heard this. She suddenly realized Why would this guy say so much? He only said this so he could let everyone know I never wanted Ji Yi to stay on the team for "Three Thousand Lunatics"!
What's more, from the very start, he actually suspected that the costume situation had something to do with Qian Ge. That was why he went through all the trouble of calling the police and calling for his private lawyer to scare the wardrobe assistant - he did it to reveal the truth before everyone's watchful eyes, which was why he said what he said at the very end.
So as it turned out, He Jichen did all this to not only get justice for Ji Yi, but most importantly, it was to use this situation to add fuel to the fire and ruin Qian Ge in front of the entire cast and crew. Moreover, he was going to ruin her image in the entertainment industry that she worked so hard to maintain!
Even if she was shocked by He Jichen, Qian Ge had worked in the entertainment industry for so many years, so after she snapped back to her senses, she quickly composed herself and started to explain herself. "Director He, you can't just take her word for it and think that I was the one who did it! Last time, Ji Yi and I did get into a little misunderstanding, but I never held a grudge. What's more, I'm the leading actress and she's the supporting actress - what reason do I have to target her?"
Qian Ge was afraid her own words weren't enough to convince people, and she was afraid her people wouldn't believe her either, so she paused for a moment. Then her gaze fell onto the wardrobe assistant nearby. "Director He, I think you have to seriously investigate this. She's in charge of costumes, so what right does she have to say that my assistant tampered with it? Who's to say that she isn't in on it with someone else to frame me instead? Must I have to take the fall for this?"
The wardrobe assistant thought she already cleared her name and was saved, but she never imagined that Qian Ge would turn around and attack her in return. She was terrified, so without even a second thought, she said, "It's not like that. I never set up Qian Ge Jie. It was Qian Ge Jie who asked me"
The more the wardrobe assistant explained, the more powerless she felt her words were compared to Qian Ge's cutting rebuttal.
She knew she did something wrong, but she was even more afraid of having to take all the blame. After all, Ji Yi's wound looked frightening! Maybe they really would sentence her.
When one is pushed to a dead end, their first instinct is to always protect themselves.
No matter what happened before, no matter how she promised to keep her word... in this very moment, to save herself, the wardrobe assistant laid all her cards out, disregarding everything else. "...Qian Ge Jie not only asked me, but she asked other people too! This isn't all she's done to Ji Yi!"
