The Bumpy Road of Marriage: Divorce Now, Daddy - Chapter 1829
“In any case, with me around, I’d love to see if that old woman can still take a single cent from here,” Mo Fei clenched her fist and said with a determined expression on her face.
“Grandma and the rest probably won’t be visiting any time soon. Didn’t you notice the horror on their faces as they left?” Thinking about that, Ding Junhui’s mood improved.
Her inability to anger them to death today could easily be considered a malfunction on her side too.
Since it was the New Year, there was only one elderly guard guarding the spacious Gu Film Studios.
After Le Tian got out of the car, she quickly ran over and informed the security guard that she misplaced her wallet inside.
Since Ding Junqi tricked her into coming over today by saying that Ding Yuejia missed her, she went over. This was the filming location for the movie’s post-production.
The guard still recognized Le Tian and let her in.
Le Tian hurried inside and caught a glimpse of light in one of the sound stages. Le Tian hesitated for a while, instinctively thinking it was a thief before realizing that something was amiss—whoever was inside seemed to be watching a movie.
Watching a movie here?
Le Tian mustered up all of her courage and went over. From the door, she saw the back of a girl who was watching one of Ding Junqi’s old movies with instant noodles in her arms.
“Xin Ya?” Le Tian called out, uncertain of what she saw.
Shocked, Xin Ya nearly threw her final packed meal. When she turned around and saw Le Tian, she breathed a sigh of relief. “Sister Le Tian, why have you come back here?”
Le Tian went in and looked down at the instant noodles in her hands. Le Tian only came here to look for her wallet after her reunion dinner with her parents.
Yet, Xin Ya was eating instant noodles alone here?
“Why didn’t you go back?” Le Tian could not help but ask as she looked at the girl who was a few years younger than her.
Xin Ya hugged the instant noodles in embarrassment. “It’s Chinese New Year today. I don’t want to disturb Young Mistress and her family. It’s good that I’m here alone. I can also watch some of Teacher Ding’s previous works and learn more. After all, I’ve never acted before.”
Le Tian felt slightly sorry for this girl.
“By the way, Sister Le Tian, did you come back for your wallet?” said Xin Ya. She quickly put down the cup noodles in her hand and took out Le Tian’s wallet from the bottom of her coat. Then, she passed it to Le Tian. “I was afraid that someone would take it away, so I put it away. Sister Le Tian, you should check and see if anything’s missing.”
Xin Ya was all smiles. She was not disappointed by her current situation.
“Why didn’t you go home?” Le Tian did not check and kept her wallet straight away.
“I couldn’t manage to get a ticket home, and I told my parents that I have a new job. I’ll be able to earn a lot of money to bring them to the city soon. They’re very happy and wish for me to work hard.”
How did this girl keep smiling so innocently?
“This is all you’re eating?” Le Tian asked.
“This is enough. The security guard gave it to me. It’s getting late. Sister Le Tian, you should go home early. Otherwise, if Teacher Ding finds out, he’ll scold us again.” Ding Junqi was serious about his work. That was why he could not tolerate any flaws. Cursing was a common occurrence.
Le Tian nodded and went out to buy Xin Ya some bread, yogurt, and other things. Then, she left in face of Xin Ya’s excitement and gratitude.
Le Tian stood at the door and turned around to look at the girl who resumed watching the movie. Le Tian seemed to know why Gu Juexi chose Xin Ya, someone who knew nothing.
That was because she was truly a rising star.
A rising star with unlimited potential in the future.
A girl like her, Le Tian hoped that someone would step out to protect her innocence.
Le Tian was still thinking when her phone suddenly rang. She looked down at the caller ID and rejected the call with a look of disdain all over her face.
