Ji Yi took the elevator up to her floor. As she passed room 2020, she realized the door was open and she could hear the intermittent cries of someone inside.
Ji Yi was curious, so she took a peep through the open door and saw a woman crouched on the ground. There were two or three women around her consoling her as she packed up her suitcase.
"Kexin, don't cry. After you leave here, you can still find somewhere else to work. It's not like you're unemployed forever."
Kexin isn't she the make-up artist? She's leaving the production team for "Three Thousand Lunatics"? From their conversation, it sounds like this make-up artist called Kexin doesn't want to leave
Ji Yi furrowed her brows in astonishment as she slowed down.
"You can't blame anyone for this. Who told you to promise Tang Jie to do those things?"
"Yeah, you have to be careful in the future. Don't go doing shady things for a little bit of money. Who knows when karma will find you."
"What's more, they fired you in private, so it won't affect your future too much. Don't cry"
After Ji Yi heard the last part as she walked past the door, her footsteps came to a sudden stop.
Tang Jie is Qian Ge's assistant, and Kexin was responsible for applying her makeup every day. Yesterday on set, the wardrobe assistant ousted Kexin to clear herself and told them she was the one who put the laxatives into my water And today, she's fired from the team.
As that thought flashed across Ji Yi's mind, she suddenly remembered how that man at the restaurant gave her his business card and told her about management changing at the last minute... What was odd was that the wardrobe assistant ousted the restaurant manager yesterday too - she said that he arranged for someone to mess with her lunch box.
So, maybe this isn't a coincidence?
If it's not a coincidence, then...
Ji Yi pursed her lips and vaguely guessed what happened.
She continued to stand there for some time before hurriedly walking away when she heard footsteps of people coming out of the room. Then she rushed over to her own room.
At her door, she pulled out the room key and was about to open the door. She hesitated for a moment but pulled her key back and walked back over to the elevator.
Ji Yi took the elevator to the first floor where she headed straight for the front desk of the hotel.
A young woman shot a smile at her and asked, "Miss, how may I help you?"
Ji Yi smiled back and said, "I'd like some information. All the guests of this hotel are from our production team, right?"
"Yes," said the lady at the front desk.
"Then, are there some people checking out and are there new personnel checking in today?"
"How did you know?" asked the lady at the front desk with a shocked expression on her face.
"I just heard it from someone," lied Ji Yi.
After a pause, Ji Yi cut right to the point: "Can you tell me who's checking out today?"
"Please wait." When the lady at the front desk said this, she looked down at the computer and started searching. After about a minute, she read out a few names.
Ji Yi knew some of the names, and there were others she hadn't heard of. However, she easily recognized a similarity amongst all those names... the make-up artist called Kexin, and the previous restaurant manager They were all names that the wardrobe assistant ousted yesterday.
