Chapter 3: Petty and Unreasonable

That was only when the people in the room noticed they have an extra person. They were so immersed in the rehearsal they didn't even know an outsider has seen a part of their play. "You," a woman who was fawning over Han Lulu earlier pointed at Chu Lian, "why didn't you tell anyone about your presence?"

"Maybe she's a spy from Studio 9." Some people gasp when another brainless woman accused Chu Lian.

Chu Lian was speechless once again. This is the second time since coming here that she was wrongly scolded. Of course Chu Lian won't admit that she indeed watched parts of the scene and was also captivated by it.

With a stiff smile, Chu Lian explained to them, "The receptionist told me to just come in and I noticed that everyone was preoccupied." In other words, it wasn't her fault they were distracted by the actors and not focusing on their own jobs.

The woman who accused Chu Lian, understanding her hidden meaning, got mad and was about to retaliate but the director, who was still in a good mood from the earlier performance, lightly scolded the woman, "Ying er, it doesn't matter. How can a mere restaurant worker affect our production."

The third time. That was the third time Chu Lian was insulted today. What is wrong being a restaurant worker? Don't they know that without them, these crew members would starve? Hmph! See if the next time I deliver food here I would not put poison on it. They really think they're some special snowflakes, huh?

She is fuming inside but she is good at hiding her emotions and playing pretend, so her face didn't change expression even just once.

However, Chu Lian didn't notice someone was staring at her the moment he saw her. But just because Chu Lian didn't notice, Han Lulu wouldn't, especially since her attention has been on Feng Chen this whole time.

A person wearing a brown polo shirt came towards Chu Lian, he seemed like a person who works at the logistics. "Miss, just put the box over there and here's the payment." He pointed a some meters away and gave some bills to Chu Lian.

She then proceeded to walk towards a table at the corner, when suddenly a hand reached for the box she was carrying. "It must be tough for a woman to carry this, let me." Feng Chen gave his best smile to Chu Lian as he tried to grab the box from her.

Han Lulu was already infuriated when she saw Feng Chen staring at Chu Lian. She got even more mad when he approached the delivery girl. "It's okay," Chu Lian said still wearing that professional smile, "it's my job and it's not heavy."

However, in the eyes of Han Lulu, the two of them were flirting. She has always been a nice and amiable woman; however, when it comes to Feng Chen's affair, she becomes petty and unreasonable.

"Chen ge," Han Lulu called out in a sweet voice, "let her do her job, you must be tired from our rehearsal earlier." In other words, you are an esteemed actor while she's just a food delivery girl, why would you help her? She then stared at Chu Lian with a smile but eyes full of daggers.

The fourth time. This is the fourth time someone wronged her. Why is this place full of unreasonable people?

"It's okay, this pretty lady here shouldn't carry heavy things or she'll hurt herself." Feng Chen said righteously.

Chu Lian didn't know whether to laugh or cry. "Dear costumer! I don't know if your trying to help me or digging me my grave." Chu Lian tearlessly cried to herself.

Han Lulu's glare got sharper when she heard her Chen ge's remark. "It's really okay." Chu Lian forcefully took the box and hurriedly walked towards the table to put down the box then headed to the door. She needs to get out of here as soon as possible or she will eventually explode. These people are really trying her patience.

Feng Chen got lightly upset at Han Lulu when he saw Chu Lian is now few steps away from the door. Han Lulu held his hands or else he really would chase after her.

Some women who were fawning over Han Lulu earlier were now actually snickering inside; that's just how women are especially in this line of work where beauty and skill are envied but has to be appreciated outside. Who in the crew doesn't know that Feng Chen doesn't like the clingy Han Lulu.

Chu Lian opened the door and hurriedly closed it when she got outside. She heaved a big sigh of relief as she walked towards the elevator.

She pressed the down arrow and waited, and while she was waiting for the elevator to arrive, she felt that she forgot something. She was recalling the events earlier when the elevator tinged and at the same time she remembered what she forgot.

The box! I'm only supposed to give them the food, not the big food box or else the boss would scold her and deduct the box's cost from her already pitiful salary.

Chu Lian turned around and hurriedly walked back to Studio 10 when the door to Studio 9 suddenly opened and a beau wearing a light pink sweater and ripped jeans suddenly came out from it.

"You're finally here!" he exclaimed as he suddenly grabbed Chu Lian who was walking towards Studio 10 and dragged her inside Studio 9. "Good job for being three hours late."
