As soon as Zhang Qi finished speaking, the emcee of the event entered the room hurriedly.
“The event is about to start. We won’t make it in time if we don’t go down now!”
Hearing the emcee’s words, Zhang Qi’s irate face broke into a cold sneer.
She pushed herself up from the floor and shot a smug glare at Nian Xiaomu.
“Weren’t you very high and mighty before? Why aren’t you saying a word now? Let me tell you this, I’m curious to see how you will explain this to the investors and the reporters if I don’t go up onstage today!”
The problem was that distant waters were powerless against fires nearby.
For the event to run smoothly, someone had to appear right now.
Acting as if she were wielding the imperial sword in her hand, Zhang Qi strutted over to Nian Xiaomu with her arms akimbo.
“Beg me. If you kneel down and beg me, maybe I would consider being kind and letting you guys off”
Before Nian Xiaomu could react to her words, the emcee had already nudged his way forward.
“As the person in charge of the event, you’ll have to resolve this matter immediately, Manager Nian. If the investors take actions against us to shoulder the blame, we will have to pay the penalty for breaking the contract. What you need to do now is to get her on the stage!”
“Did you hear that? He asked you to beg me!” Zhang Qi added. Scoffing in delight, she taunted, “Do you think that you have any other options besides me right now? Let me teach you the rules of the industry today!”
Zhang Qi walked back to the sofa and crossed her legs as she sat down.
She placed both of her hands on the armrests and arrogantly raised her eyebrows.
There was little time left.
Even if they were to replace Zhang Qi, it was impossible to find a suitable person on such short notice.
After all, Zhang Qi was a B-grade celebrity. To satisfy the investors, they had to replace her with someone who was more popular.
It wouldn’t be easy to enlist an A-grade celebrity in the first place. It would be even tougher to find one who was willing to act as a substitute
Although Xiaoxiao was young, she was well-aware of the consequences.
She walked over to Nian Xiaomu’s side with her eyes still red and swollen and said, “Manager Nian, I know that you were trying to help me. I did not handle this matter well today, and it was my fault that I implicated you as well. Let me apologize to Miss Zhang”
Nian Xiaomu reached out to hold her back. Tilting her head up, Nian Xiaomu exclaimed, “You did nothing wrong! You don’t have to apologize!”
“It seems like you guys don’t intend to go on with the event. That’s fine. I won’t go onstage. Let’s see what you can do about it!” Zhang Qi threatened as gritted her teeth.
The emcee’s face changed.
There were less than 10 minutes left before the start of the event.
If they were to give up on Zhang Qi, where could they find a celebrity to replace her who had a similar status?
“If she won’t do it, I’ll do it!” a crisp voice said from outside.
Startled, everyone took a second to react and look over at the door.
When they saw who was standing at the door, they froze in shock before shrieking in alarm, “Shang, Shangxin!”
Ignoring the other people, Shangxin took off her baseball cap and strutted over to Nian Xiaomu.
Smiling as she looked over at her, Shangxin greeted Nian Xiaomu affectionately before throwing a side glance at Zhang Qi, who was sitting in a daze on the sofa.
Shangxin didn’t have to do anything special. Just by standing there, her outstanding appearance and natural aura of celebrity was enough to make Zhang Qi feel ashamed of herself.
Compared to a top celebrity like Shangxin, Zhang Qi was hardly worth any mention!
However, everyone knew that Shangxin was not easy to book for events.
Not to mention that this was a small-scale event, even if it were a huge event, it would be almost impossible to get Shangxin to agree to it.
Why would she help Nian Xiaomu?!
