Company meeting in the morning.
Cai Yong Sheng praised himself proudly, “After I took charge, Lucy, Luo Chen and Gong Xu had a drastic increase in exposure and everyone is talking about them – it’s a total three-way-win situation! Nowadays, we can’t just shoot a movie and call it a day; publicity and marketing are very important as well. Otherwise, nobody would talk about them and they wouldn’t rise in fame, right?”
“Exactly, exactly, director Cai is right!”
“Lucy certainly has some potential. She became so popular so soon after debuting. Cai Yong Sheng has great instincts!”
The other higher-ups from the company agreed.
Lucy Yang pretended to be modest and remarked, “All of you are flattering me. It’s all thanks to the help of director Cai!”
Cai Yong Sheng looked at Gong Xu and Luo Chen as pleased as punch and he ordered them, “Gong Xu and Luo Chen, I already arranged the next course of your journeys for the two of you. Next week, you guys will be taking part in Imperial City satellite TV’s reality show together with Lucy. It’s called ‘Totally In Love’…”
Gong Xu couldn’t tolerate this anymore. He slammed the table and stood up. “Who are you to arrange young master’s itinerary?! What’s your status, huh?!”
Cai Yong Sheng chuckled and gave Gong Xu side-eye. “Tsk tsk, Gong Xu. Although your manager is vice-president Ye, your contract is with the company and now that I’m the director of talent recruitment, I’ll have the final say on everything regarding an artist’s work assignments; even vice-president Ye has no right to question me. If you’re not convinced, you can bring your complaints to chairmanChu!”
“Cai Yong Sheng, don’t use chairman Chu against me! You…”
Luo Chen frowned and reminded him in a low voice, “Gong Xu, that’s enough. Don’t make things hard for Ye-ge. If you carry on making a fuss, everyone will think Ye-ge instructed you to act like this whether it was your own idea or not. Ye-ge’scurrent situation is already challenging enough!”
“Damn it…” Gong Xu balled his fists up tightly.
If this was in the past, he wouldn’t have to tolerate anyone’s nonsense…
However, that was because of the backing from his family, not himself.
His two elder brothers were experts in their own fields and were thepride of his parents. He was the only one with nothing to his name and he had been sheltered by the family.
In the past, he took it for granted and only realized now that those people were right – without the status of young master Gong, he was nothing at all and didn’t even have the ability to protect the people he cared about…
Luo Chen pressed Gong Xu’s shoulder. “We’ll talk about it again once Ye-ge is back!”
Gong Xu then suppressed his anger and sat down.
“It’s confirmed then! Meeting adjourned!” Cai Yong Sheng looked at the two of them mockingly.
One of them was a toothless paper tiger while the other had neither status nor background. Without the huge tree of Worldwide, they were nothing; whatever Worldwide gave them, it could be taken back very easily and unless they were obedient, they didn’t have to think about making it big!
After a day’s work was over, Ye Wanwan returned to the hotel room.
Just as she expected, the moment she opened her laptop, she saw scandals flooding the internet regarding Gong Xu, Luo Chen and Lucy Yang.
Cai Yong Sheng molded Lucy Yang into a perfect goddess while Gong Xu and Luo Chen both had deep admiration for her and were used as a foil for her.
One didn’t have to think to know that Gong Xu was already exploding in fury for sure…
In three days’ time, Ye Wanwan would receive the final sum of money and clear her housing debt. Then she wouldn’t have to be controlled by Chu Hong Guang anymore…
