"Then how are you so sure that the person Lu Jinnian likes isn't Qiao Anhao?"
Qiao Anxia faced Lin s.h.i.+yi's question with her curved, light-hearted smile, staring closely at Lin s.h.i.+yi for a while. She opened her mouth and asked the actress in return, "If I'm not wrong, you're Miss Lin s.h.i.+yi right?"
Lin s.h.i.+yi blinked but didn't say a word.
Qiao Anxia kept up her high cla.s.s manners, but the words she continued to say were nothing but ruthless, "Miss Lin, though I may not be in the entertainment industry and don't really care for matters within it, nevertheless, Qiao Anhao is my sister.
"As for her matters, I know little about them. You're shooting a TV series together right now, and you were originally the second female lead, right? Then my sister stole the role... Based on that point alone, whatever you say to me, I will always think that you have some ulterior motive. You and I have met by chance, a one-off chance meeting. Please, tell me what makes you so sure that I would believe you over my sister?"
When Qiao Anxia finished speaking, she gave Lin s.h.i.+yi an elegant and gentle smile. She said, "If you'll excuse me...", then turned to leave the restroom.
"Miss Qiao, there's just one more thing you're probably unaware about. Last night, Qiao Anhao was in an accident on set. She fell from a swing and Lu Jinnian didn't hesitate for one second to jump over to catch her. He even sent her to the hospital. Because of her, he was in a fit of rage and fired all of the stage prop crew!"
Though what Lin s.h.i.+yi said was true, she wasn't sure if what Lu Jinnian had done was all for Qiao Anhao. Nevertheless, to drive a wedge, Lin s.h.i.+yi immediately spoke with a confident tone, as well as jealousy at the situation.
At those words, Qiao Anxia's footsteps slightly paused for a moment.
Lu Jinnian and Qiao Anhao had known each other for many years. Though it looked like they were not close, but Qiao Anhao was Xu Jiamu's wife, and Lu Jinnian was Xu Jiamu's brother.
If Qiao Anhao was really in trouble, it would be normal for Lu Jinnian to save her.
Qiao Anxia turned her head and looked into Lin s.h.i.+yi's eyes with a slight hint of anger. "Miss Lin, I don't care about whatever kind of motive you have today, but let me tell you clearly, don't even think about trying to pick at Qiao Qiao and my relations.h.i.+p.
"There's nothing more important in this world than my sister. Moreover, let me warn you, I will not argue with you this time, but if there's a next time... If I find out that you have mistreated Qiao Qiao, other people might not argue with you, but I, Qiao Anxia, will definitely be the first to stand up to spend all my effort to exile you from the entertainment industry. Don't think I'm just playing either. The Qiao family really has the ability to do this!"
Qiao Anxia's words crushed Lin s.h.i.+yi with their frankness and ruthlessness. Her face grew troubled and awkward.
Qiao Anxia gave a gentle smile, turned around, and stomped elegantly away in her heels.
