She saw me go into the elevator, so she deliberately caught up just to show off infront of me?
Ji Yi pretended as though she didn't her at all and kept walking forward.
"Look. Just now, I said just two words to director Liang, and he immediately disqualified you from the audition. And what did you do? Couldn't do a thing about it but gloomily walk away." Qian Ge curved her red lips into a smirk as if to tease Ji Yi's helplessness. She continued to speak carefully.
"You said you want a place in the entertainment industry, but you can't even get through the door. How are you going to get a footing in this field?"
The more Qian Ge spoke, the better she felt, "Oh, that's not right. You can't even audition for a useless filler character. Again, how are you going to get a footing in this field?"
Ji Yi suddenly stopped walking and flashed a gentle smile.
I don't want to get caught up with her anymore but how am I supposed to stop her from rambling?!
With that thought, Ji Yi slowly turned her head towards Qian Ge."Did you really think you're respected in this field? That you beat me? You say that I, right now, can't beat you since you're better. Then why don't you audition for a filler character? Why don't you personally compete against me? Qian Ge, what are you really afraid of?"
The smile on Qian Ge's face faded.
"Qian Ge, should I say that you have no confidence or that you're just too pitiful? No matter if it's four years ago or four years later, you've seen me all the same!"
The smile on Qian Ge's face completely disappeared; a coldness surfaced on her lips. Ji Yi felt a vicious and cutting glare through her sunglasses.
After a while, Qian Ge moved her lips, "I never imagined that after so many years, you would still have a sharp tongue!"
With that, Qian Ge slowly walked over to Ji Yi in her high heels. "But, getting back on topic... Don't tell me you don't know what I told director Liang?"
As Qian Ge stood in front of Ji Yi, she removed her sunglasses and slowly drew closer to Ji Yi's ear. She said, while emphasizing every word, "I told director Liang that you got pregnant four years ago. 'Pregnant out of wedlock' is bad for your reputation. This time, his movie's a big deal, so if someone wrote an article and exposed rumours about such a nasty actress associated with his movie, there could be a lot of people who'd boycott this movie. The box office sales would suffer considerably."
As Qian Ge said this, she lowered her head and dug out her elegant nails. "What's more, this actress had no background or popularity, so to be on the safe side, it'd be best to go with someone safer without such a scandalous reputation. After all, there were a ton of actresses with clean backgrounds. There really was no use in taking such a risk."
So that was what Qian Ge said to director Liang... Ji Yi slightly pursed the corners of her lips, and she instinctively lowered her eyes.
She had to admit that Qian Ge really did put her in a difficult situation.
Nowadays, it's easy to get people talking online. Many people who scout or try to promote celebrities are vigilant, being careful to avoid even a single hiccup that could drag them down and ruin their efforts.
What's more, what she said was true. Four years ago, she did in fact get pregnant out of wedlock.
