She wanted to have a different makeup artist one moment, then requested to have a change of wardrobe the very next instant. By the end, she even insisted on editing the lines of her introduction
She treated the staff members as her punching bags the moment something did not go her way.
Before slapping Xiaoxiao, she had already scolded a few staff members so badly that they burst into tears on the spot.
A look of guilt flashed past Zhang Qi’s face when she heard what Nian Xiaomu had said. Following which, she lifted her chin up and said, “You were the one who said that, not me. Your subordinate was the one who was blind and spilled water on me. Did you expect me to suffer in silence?”
Xiaoxiao anxiously wanted to explain herself when she heard this. However, the secretary held her back and motioned for her not to say anything.
They had already checked with the other staff members and determined that it was Zhang Qi who wanted to vent her anger on Xiaoxiao. This led Zhang Qi to bump into Xiaoxiao’s hand on purpose, and it resulted in water spilling onto Zhang Qi because she had knocked over the glass of water in Xiaoxiao’s hand.
Even under these circumstances, Zhang Qi would never admit her wrongdoings with that character of hers.
Instead, she would trump up a counter-charge against them and claim that they were shielding one another.
The event was about to begin. The most important thing right now was to placate Zhang Qi and get her up on the stage.
Other matters could be discussed later on.
“Yeah, as long as it floats your boat, Miss Zhang. However, you have already vented your anger and my staff has already apologized to you as well. What more do you want?” Nian Xiaomu’s hands were clenched into two balled up fists as she countered Zhang Qi with another question. She emphasized her words by speaking with a pause after each word.
If this had happened during a typical time, Nian Xiaomu might not have been able to contain herself when she saw the marks on Xiaoxiao’s face.
However, today’s event was a collaboration with President Fang.
Due to the incident yesterday, where she had refused to drink alcohol, President Fang already felt that he was not being taken seriously.
If something went wrong with the event today, President Fang might misunderstand and think that she was taking vengeance on purpose. In a way, it might take a toll on the client’s trust in the Yu Corporation.
Furthermore, this was the first public event that they had organized since the Fan Corporation had entered City H.
The event would be greatly publicized if there was a screw up.
Nian Xiaomu had to wait if she wanted to settle the score with Zhang Qi
“She drenched the clothes that I wanted to wear when I appear onstage later. Are you going to settle it with just a sorry?”
Zhang Qi stood up from the sofa. With her fingers that were smeared with red nail polish, she pointed at Xiaoxiao arrogantly and said, “I want her to kneel down and apologize to me. If not, don’t expect me to go onstage today!”
“Dream on!” Nian Xiaomu blurted out without hesitation.
Employees were humans as well. She would exercise some tolerance toward Zhang Qi for the sake of business, but she would never allow Zhang Qi to humiliate her employees as she wished!
“Miss Zhang, I hope that you can be clear about this. You have signed a contract with us to attend this event. If you don’t appear onstage, you will have to compensate us with a huge sum for the penalty fee. You better think twice!”
“Are you threatening me? Who the hell are you!” Just like a cat whose tail had been stepped on, Zhang Qi rushed right in front of Nian Xiaomu the moment she heard that she would have to pay a penalty fee.
“Let me tell you guys, I am someone who has got millions of fans. If photos of water being spilled on me were leaked, my fans would surely defend me against this injustice. The investors will surely get even with you guys when news of the event is all filled with bad reviews!”
“So what? You would still have to compensate us with the penalty fee before that happens!” Nian Xiaomu replied in a manner that was neither haughty nor humble.
“You” Zhang Qi instantly flew into a shameful rage as she raised her hand up and waved it at Nian Xiaomu.
Nian Xiaomu had already grabbed ahold of Zhang Qi’s hand before it even touched her face.
Turning the tables around, she relentlessly landed a slap right on Zhang Qi’s face!
“This slap is on behalf on Xiaoxiao!”
With a wave of Nian Xiaomu’s hand, Zhang Qi lost her balance and fell backward. She landed on the floor, butt first.
Reaching out, she covered her face and looked at Nian Xiaomu with a look of disbelief.
“How dare you hit me? Nian Xiaomu, let me tell you this, I will not attend today’s event. You can prepare to publish a blank page in the newspaper!”
